Hrithik Roshan In Agneepath Movie Stills
Hrithik Roshan is the fifth Bollywood hero to enter the 100 crore club.

One has heard of mass hysteria. But what one saw in the case of Karan Johar’s Agneepath on the opening day – Thursday, January 26 – was mass and class hysteria. The public, belonging to any and every social strata, seemed to have gone mad over the remake of Agneepath of 1990. In spite of multiplexes screening the new Agneepath in upto 15 and 20 shows a day, it recorded full houses throughout the day or almost so! The opening day record held by Bodyguard so far was broken, that too, by a fair margin. As against the first day’s collection of Rs. 21.5 crore in the case of Salman Khan’s Bodyguard, Agneepath collected Rs. 23 crore nett from all-India!

With this, it is a foregone conclusion that Hrithik Roshan will become the fifth hero to join the Rs. 100-crore club because it shouldn’t be long before Agneepath touches the magical figure of Rs. 100 crore. So far, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgan are the only heroes whose films have crossed the century mark. Aamir has two 100-crore films to his credit – Ghajini and the all-time blockbuster, 3 Idiots. Salman made it to the club with Dabangg and fortified his position with two more 100-crore films last year, viz. Ready and his and last year’s biggest, Bodyguard. Shah Rukh gained entry into the club with Ra.One and quickly followed it up with Don 2. Ajay Devgan’s solo blockbuster, Singham, made it to the 100-crore club last year but before that, his multi-starrer, Golmaal 3, had also crossed the coveted figure.

No doubt, Sanjay Dutt would also have to be given credit for Agneepath reaching the 100-crore mark in the days to come, but the fact remains that he plays a villain in it and the film is, after all, a solo-hero film and so, cheers to Hrithik Roshan for that! While on Dutt, it must be mentioned that his get-up and performance are winning the highest praise for him from classes and masses alike. Probably, Sanjay Dutt mustn’t have got so much adulation for his villainy even in Khal-nayak, another landmark film in which he played the evil man for the first time.

    • agree but agneepath is not mindless…it had a clear story..bit bloody..but by watching trailers u must hv guessed it…direction was very good..climax eve better

  1. Hi u r truly mistaken with hrithik , as due to Sanjay dutt presense the film is entering 100 crore club, as sanjay well associated with Salman Khan.

  2. only deserving movies in 1oo crore list are 3 idiots and don 2 ……. it si shame to see dull movie like ready and bodyguard in this list though i admire dabangg …….

  3. Cant understand how can you tell the fate of a movie just on its first day.. 100 crores ..Cant you be modest to say it is Expected to make 100 crores. It would have not touched 100% even 20 crores on first day had the review by Taran Adarsh, which was suprisingly published before friday…as majority of the bollywood junta are dumb ass for whom movie watching is review driven and the other set of dumb ass who enjoy desi mindless movies. I prefered his ZNMD which was for me the movie of 2011…but this was not meant to be for the dumb mass

  4. The best action packed movie made in the last 15 years in Bollywood. Icing on the cake – Hrithik’s performance. Don’t think there is anybody in Bollywood who can match this performance or even come anywhere close to him.

  5. agneepath awsum movie nd rizwan madharchod teko kisne bola tha ja ke dekh jo abhi bol raha hai republic day ka maza kharab ho gya teko man nai tha toh mat jata na re madharchod behenchod wale

  6. Movie herro par depand karti ha chahe veiln kitana bi pawarfull . Vese bhi hrithik akale ke dam par movie hit karta ha who bhi blockbaster

  7. Jisko jo kehna hy woh kehta rahe,sach to yeh hy k Sr Bachchan k baad btown me agar koi sahi me qabil actor hy to woh HR hy.
    r yeh baat HR apne har film me prove krte aarehe hy.unke filmz chahe hit ho ya flop,koi critic ajtak ye nhi keh paya k HR k prformns kharp tha. samajhne wale samajhte hy,r jo nhi samajte,woh unlogoka prob hy,HRfanz ko yeh sochne ki jarurat nhi,q k hum sirf garv krte hy HRfan honeka :):):)

  8. AGAR AGNEEPATH 23 CR THO EK THA TIGER 25 KE UPAR HOGA COLLECTION SAMAJ LO YERO SALMAN KHAN IS THE MEGA STAR OF WORLD GET THIS POINT BABY’S
