Bollywood has a 100 crore fascination. Every film targets to surpass that coveted benchmark and it doesn’t matter what the obsession is created with. More often than not, the films that make it to the list are gags driven more than content driven. However, the films never shy from being open about how desperate they are to join the 100 crore club!


With Chennai Express crossing 200 crores and Shah Rukh Khan’s statement that 100 crores isn’t a big deal anymore, Bollywood now has a new 200 crore club that already has two films listed in it namely Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots and Chennai Express!

With almost 22 entrants on the list of 100 crores, it is somehow not as glorious as it used to be. Becoming a more easy feat to attain, 200 crores is the new significant thing.

The Bollywood market growing at a fast pace, it is easy to cross 100 crores in a matter of weeks for films these days. With a strong budget, smart marketing strategies and heavy star value films these days are marking their incomes way higher than mere 100 crores.

Given the year has in store high budget films like Dhoom 3 and Krrish 3 which are adequately hyped, marketed and have a great chance of selling, there is a good chance of these films making their way into a 200 crore club soon it seems.

Moreover, January 2014 has bigger releases in store. Salman Khan will make a comeback on screen after a dry spell of more than a year, with Jai Ho and Akshay Kumar’s Thuppakki – the films might be the potential entrants into the 200 crore club too! Luckily Bollywood is not just a vernacular film industry anymore, it is business with high stakes and higher gains!

  1. jisko jo club banana he vo banao lekin ek hakikat kisi ka bap bhi nahi change kar sakta
    vo ye he ki srk is the first actor to deliver 5 back to back 200 cr worldwide grossers with each movies being from different genres….
    go to hell haters…
    and only actor to have 2 100 cr grossers in overseas…

  2. Jo Aamir ne 2008 aur 2009 me hasil kiya
    i.e. 1 st 100 crore film Ghajini &
    1 st 200 crore film 3 Idiots
    wo baki actors ko ab mil raha hai
    isse pata chalata hai kon kitane pani me hai !!!
    Agar CE compare karana hai to D3 & K3 se karna !!

    • aisa hai agar aise dekhoge to phir jo DDLJ ne kar diya wo kisi ke baap me b damm nahi hai kar sakta hai.. aur jo shole & mughle azam ne kiya wo b koi nahi kar sakta…. aur haan DDLJ ne 1995 me 102 crore ka bussiness kiya tha lekin us waqt bussiness nahi dekha jata tha……isliye media batata b nahi hai.. ok so be fare yaar

    • bro , btw aamir ne jo 2012 m hasil kiya woh bhi koi khan hasil nahi kar paya ,,
      Talaash india boxoffice collection < 100cr ,, lolz

    • Jo SRK ne 1995 me kiya woh record abhi thak break nai hua..

      Ghajini is Tamil film remake. 3 Idiots is equal contribution from whole team. Its nothing to do with Aamir.

      But CE is SRK’s product.

  3. Congratualtions to all SRK fans as CE crosses the 200 cr mark. But one thing I want to mention that CE is not better than 3 Idiots. Also 3 Idiots made 200 cr in the year 2009. Now its 2013 and compare the ticket prices in 2009 & 2013, the ticket prices has almost doubled. So if CE makes 300 cr then it will be the No.1 in box office collection. But content wise No.1 is 3 Idiots.
