There was a time when Kangana Ranaut dominated the box office and was among the most bankable actresses in Bollywood. She has been a part of some really good content-oriented films in the past, and their theatrical outcome impressed everyone. So, today, we’ll be taking a look at her one blockbuster hit, which dominated the list of profitable Bollywood films among March releases. Keep reading to know more!

Before we move further, let us inform you that in Box Office Flashback, we talk about the movies of the past that were released during the same month or on the same date the article was written. We talk about their box office feats or any achievements that have been unleashed. In today’s piece, we’re talking about Bollywood’s most profitable film of March, which held the top spot for straight 8 years.

The Kangana Ranaut starrer which we’re talking about is Queen. Released on 7th March 2014, the film was directed by Vikas Bahl. Upon its release, this comedy-drama opened to highly positive reviews from all over. It was lucky enough that the same reception was converted into footfalls as audiences poured a lot of love. As a result, it surprised everyone with its box office outcome.

For those who don’t know, Queen stayed in theatres for a long and ended the run by earning 61 crores net at the Indian box office. Reportedly, made at just 11 crores, it raked in returns of a whopping 50 crores (collection – cost). If calculated, the ROI (return on investment) equals 454%.

With such high returns, Kangana Ranaut‘s Queen remained at the top of the list of most profitable Bollywood films released in March for 8 years, from 2014 to 2022. It remained above films like Badla (300.09% returns) and Baaghi 2 (175% returns). However, in 2022, Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmi Files left everyone jaw-dropped with its performance.

Released on 11th March 2022, The Kashmir Files did a business of a staggering 252.50 crores net at the Indian box office against a low budget of 20 crores. If the cost is removed from the collection, the returns stand at 232.50 crores. It equals 1162% ROI. It surpassed Queen by a huge margin, and it seems that this film will remain at the top for a long time.
