  1. It is quite interesting to see that 3 idiots is called the highest grosser in bollywood.If purely going by records,it is true.It netted 203 crores.But it is the highest grosser unadjusted for inflation.According to IBOS the following are the top 7 films of bollywood adjusted for inflation with their gross collections.1.Sholay(1600 crores),2.Mughal e azam(1200 crores),3.Hum Aapke Hain kaun(890 crores),4.Muqaadar Ka sikander(850 crores),5.Dilwale Dulhania le jayenge(810 crores),6.Raja Hindustani(700 crores) and 7.Gadar-ek prem katha(520 crores).The adjusted gross collections of 3 idiots are 315 crores.Enthiran grossed more than 3 idiots worldwide.It will be a clash between Talash and SRK-Yash Chopra starrer for the best film of the year.

  2. this is kind of wrong bodyguard made 100crore in 7days wed(21crore)thur(17.5crore)fri(13crore)sat(14.75crore)sun(18.75crore)mon(9crore)tues(6.5crore) total 100.5core in 7days and 109core in its extended 9day first week

  3. Karan is correct.Today the game is to earn maximum on the weekend and first week.Bad or ordinary films with big names rake moolahs at the box office.Awful movie like Bodyguard and disasterous movie like Ready earn billions.Now Salman fans will say that Ra.One is a worst movie.SRK took challenge and made the best technological bollywood movie alongside Enthiran.Shirish Kunder tweeted,150 crore cracker fizzle out.Ra.One made 125 crore in India and 50 crore overseas.It made 175 crores worldwide with a budget of 130 crores.It made 25.1 crores on a single day,60 crores in 3 days and 91-92 crores in extended weekend.It grossed 240 crores worldwide and is second behind 3 Idiots.But this year some films have great hopes like Tezz,Ek tha tiger,Talaash,Race 2,Raaz 3 and SRK-Yash Chopra starrer.So we should expect quality films to break records.

  4. Karan has given an interesting information.The multiplex culture started in 2006 and completely dominated the scenario in 2009.There has been some great movies during this period like Lage raho Munnabhai,Dhoom 2,Krrish,Rang de basanti,Chak de India,Taare zameen par,Jab we met and Om shanti Om.If these movies would have released in 2011 where business has gone up drastically, they would have collected 150-200 crores nett.Today ordinary movie like Bodyguard collected 142 crores nett.If all time classics like Hum aapke hain kaun,Dilwale Dulhania le jayenge,Raja Hindustani,Kuch kuch hota hai and King of the last decade Gadar would have released today,3 idiots record will go up in smoke.Gadar’s footfalls were around 4 crores and such footfalls today will earn 325-350 crores nett.So stop calling 3 Idiots as highest grosser of bollywood.This is misleading information.

  5. srk fans always muh ki khaate hain :p
    ra one ke tym 400 cr kamayegi don 2 ke tym 500 cr kamayegi saari collection khadde me chale gaye :D

  6. Salman khan is the super human. We love him as a human. In his entire career never done any sex sence or lip kissing sence. But his romantic sence are too good. He is the hollywood standard action hero. His comedy is outstanding. He is 1000 time better than anyone as a host.
