A sequel is undoubtedly a money-making tool for all the film industries. And over the last decade, we have seen enough sequels being churned out, especially from Bollywood. Not that all of them were made just to rake in good money, but yes, there have been films which have earned huge moolah despite offering mediocre content.
As Ajay Devgn’s Drishyam 2 has once again proved the dominance of the sequel factor, today, we’ll be taking a look at the top 10 highest-grossing Bollywood sequels of all time. Without analyzing the films based on their content, the list is just about the earnings they made at the Indian box office.
Here’s the list:
Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) – 339.16 crores
Dhoom 3 (2013) – 280.25 crores
Krrish 3 (2013) – 240.50 crores
Housefull 4 (2019) – 206 crores
