In this post, we will let you know about the Top 10 Highest Opening Week Bollywood Grossers of All Time. Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Sultan shattered all the previous box office records and ride on top of this list of highest first-week collections of all time.
With an increase in the number of screens around the country, the business of Bollywood movies is also grown immensely. Day by day, the whopping box office collections of the big films like Sultan are giving a huge shock to the trade experts.
Action and dance superstars duo Hrithik-Tiger’s War (Rs 238 Cr.) left Salman Khan’s Sultan behind in 2019. With Rs 209 crore, Sultan left Dhoom 3 (Rs 188.99 crore) miles away in the race.
Salman once again is the undisputed king of Bollywood as his six films including Tiger Zinda Hai (206 Cr), Sultan, Prem Ratan Shan Payo (Rs 172.82 crore), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Rs 184.62 crore), Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 154.21 crore) and Kick (Rs164.09 crore) have been decorated in this list.
Bollywood’s biggest blockbuster Dangal (Rs 197.53 Cr.) took 4th place after Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai and set several Box office records not only at domestic also international. The film earned around Rs 1100 Crore in China which seems unbreakable for the next few years.
The rest of the biggies in this elite group of Hindi films are, Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju (Rs 202 Cr.) Shah Rukh Khan starrer Happy New Year (Rs 157.57 crore), Aamir Khan’s PK (Rs183.09 crore), Chennai Express (Rs 156.50 crore),) and Krrish 3 (Rs 166.52 crore).
These all are the biggest Bollywood grosser and have been among Bollywood Box office records. Let’s go through the list of Top 15 Highest Opening Week Bollywood Grossers (All-Time).
After the Coronavirus pandemic, this milestone is not easy to achieve. Akshay Kumar is emerging as a new Box Office King but the highest opening week grosser is still far away from him.
