It is a sensation, it is a metaphor, it is an emblem of success today. While some brush aside being a part of this game and regard it as a fad, others readily accept their desires to get a membership in the coveted club. Yes, it is the new benchmark, rather the new standard of success in tinsel town: The 100 Crore Club!

With each director, producer and actor eyeing for the 100 crore run of their films at the box office, we at Koimoi.com list down 10 of the most anticipated films of 2013 that is expected to cross the envied 100 crore spot.

Mental

Salman Khan
Salman Khan

All set for a release sometime in the third quarter of the year, this still-filming Salman Khan starrer as usual has created a lot of stir in the industry with Mental being the only Salman Khan release this year. While Salman who has set the screen ablaze with some grueling and exhaustingly superlative performances, shattering all box office records, Mental is expected to cross the 100 crore mark, much like chalk and cheese. Let’s hope it touches the 200 crore saturation point too!

Chennai Express

If there’s one Salman leading the pack when it comes to box office openings and records, there is this other Khan, the Baadshah who too makes sure to that his films complete a 100 crore business run at the box office. Not just that, with the great revenue from the overseas market, the Shah Rukh Khan and Rohit Shetty pair is expected to sizzle this Eid with their Chennai Express! A perfect Eidi to all fans, Shah Rukh is expected to outdo his other performances with the masala entertainer-cum-action drama that he’s venturing in!

Krrish 3

A superhero flick that had set the nation crazy in the early 2000s, made a comeback years back in the form of Krrish. But it is the concluding Krrish 3 that has been in news for years now. With a Diwali spread already made foot-ready for the Krrish 3 team in advance, Hrithik Roshan, who is currently basking in all the Agneepath-100-crore glory has the pressure to deliver a top notch performance, despite all odds and straining. Assuring the film a steady business of at least a century of crores!

Dhoom 3

While Mr.Perfectionist might have failed to touch the coveted 100 crore mark with his last venture Talaash, Dhoom 3 is riding sky high, much due to the first time Aamir Khan-Katrina Kaif pairing and the excellent stunt sequences that Aamir is made to do in the film. Plus a successful franchise like Dhoom in itself has a lot of euphoria enveloping it. All’s up to this Christmas where we ultimately decide if this Once-upon-a-time-winner of the domestic circuit still shines with all his sheen!

Himmatwala

The dark horse of Bollywood, Ajay Devgn has constantly renewed his membership at this almost-famous club now, with most of his films raking in moolah at the cash registrars like a cakewalk. And with last year’s Bol Bachchan and Son Of Sardaar already scoring huge, Himmatwala has the necessary reasons to make it as yet another 100 crore film. Plus the magician Sajid Khan’s tricks are surely conjuring up a different recipe altogether this time.

Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai 2

Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar

He did a successful Housefull 2 and an even more successful Rowdy Rathore last year but it is his Dawood Ibrahim biopic Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai 2 that has raised the barometric levels to an uneven high. Akshay Kumar, who shelled pout almost 400 crores with his five films last year, is definitely the flavour of the season, with his films, expected to set the trade circuit on fire. Milan Luthria as the director comes as an added bonus!

Besharam

A surprise entry to the 100 crore club, Barfi! made sure that Ranbir Kapoor, the actor is enlisted within the group of superstars as well. While Barfi!’s moving plotline and an effortless performance made Ranbir the new pin-up boy, it would definitely be his Besharam and his myriad portrayals that make us feel that Ranbir, the actor-cum-superstar is definitely here to stay. Slowly gaining momentum, this rising star of Bollywood is surely expected to strike the 100 crore baton yet again with his Besharmi!

Rambo Rajkumar

While most films on the list are riding on the shoulders of the able hero, this one is definitely an expected victory, more because of the director’s mass appeal. After striking gold and platinum with Rowdy Rathore last year, all eyes are on Prabhu Deva as he embarks upon the voyage to bring out the best out of his protagonists: Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha. If this film meets our expectations, it would certainly be another 100 crore film for our Dabangg heroine but a first of its kind for the chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor!

Ghanchakkar

Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan

The ultimate saga of an talent embellished Heroine, who is the Hero among the actresses, given the standalone performances and the critical acclaim that she has received along with the crowd pulling cheers and ceetees nationwide, Vidya Balan will be gearing up for her first release post marriage titled Ghanchakkar. While the Vidya Balan-Emraan Hashmi jodi created ripples with The Dirty Picture, it would be their one-on-one outing in Ghanchakkar that will predict their box office strength. Will Vidya the warrior princess score bigger this time? Hell yeah, we think!
