Bollywood’s upsurge of hits has been ceaseless with big wigs blowing away the cash registers. The first 9 months has witnessed hits like Ek Tha Tiger, Rowdy Rathore, Agneepath, Housefull 2, Cocktail and furthermore we hope the year has much more crowd pullers from the upcoming releases.
In this period the star power has risen yet again with Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan, Ajay Devgan booking the top 5 slots with their respective films grossing over the 100 Crore benchmark in this period. But surprise surprise as Vidya Balan starrer Kahaani has made a fair entry in the list of the rockers of the first half. It goes without doubt that the delightful Barfi! is supposed to make a home run given the brilliant reception and has taken a great lead in our list which sadly evaded Kareena Kapoor starrer Heroine’s fate.
Although Akshay Kumar’s OMG Oh My God!, releases this September end but we still go ahead with our list as it takes merely 3 days of the month. With an assortment of comedy, action, drama and thriller we present the list of flicks grabbing the top slot and rounding up the first nine months of the industry.
Ek Tha Tiger
The imminent winner with no hiccups on the way is Sallu Bhai’s Ek Tha Tiger which saw an Independence Day opening with a fabulous 32.92 crores on its opening day itself. The Yash Raj’s experiment with high dosage of stunts and reworking of the hit pairing of Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan did box office wonders for the multi Crore venture. The film has said to have earned about a staggering 198 crores and no wonder rules our list as the top grosser till now.
