1963 wasn’t a brilliant year for Bollywood as far as the Box Office is considered. Sure there were many strong hits, but there were many films which couldn’t cross even 1 crore mark. Even in the list of Top 10, 4 films couldn’t make it to the 1 crore club.
Rajendra Kumar, Ashok Kumar & Sunil Dutt mostly dominated the year with films like Mere Mehboob, Gumrah, Dil Ek Mandir, Mujhe Jeene Do, Gehra Daag and Bandini.
Joy Mukherjee & Dev Anand also made their presence felt with biggies like Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon & Tere Ghar Ke Saamne.
