Some key facts
♦ Salman is the only actor to give 3 consecutive highest grosser of the year (2010-12)
♦ Hrithik and Salman are the only actors to deliver highest grosser on his debut
♦ Salman has delivered Top 2 grossers of the year 4 times (1999,2011,2012,2015)
♦ SRK has given top 2 grossers of year twice (1995 and 2004).
♦ Hrithik has also done it once in 2006 (Krrish and Dhoom 2)
♦ In recent times whenever Aamir Khan has delivered HGTY, it has also been highest grosser of all time (Ghajini, 3 Idiots and PK)
Bollywood industry went through a bad phase from 1998 onwards. As you can see the highest grosser of the year continues to decline every year (with exception of Gadar). This trend continues till the release of Dhoom 2 in 2006.
By taking a look at the table, we can say that Bollywood has been ruled by three Khans, not in this decade by also in the 90’s. Only Hrithik Roshan has given them some competition in recent times.
