  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.
