The 2000-2009 decade gave the Bollywood industry a huge push when it comes to theatrical business. It all started with Sunny Deol’s Gadar: Ek Prem Katha in 2001 breaking the historic record of Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994). The film clashed with Aamir Khan’s Lagaan which was also a huge hit and still managed to become the All-Time Highest Grosser till that time.


Then in 2006, Gadar’s record was broken by Dhoom 2 as it became the first Bollywood film to cross 80 crores mark.
