Highest Grosser of the Year 1990-2015:

We are going to update some of the box office records and their analysis. Our main focus will be on the movies released after 2000. Though we have also some data from 90’s. But in recent times a lot of things about box office has been changed. So it will be more relevant if we talk about the movies of this century.

Let’s take a look at the highest grossers of the year from 1990-2015.

Aamir Khan: 7 Films
Shahrukh Khan: 5 Films
Hrithik Roshan: 3 Films
Sunny Deol: 2 Films


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.

  3. In 1999 Salman Khan gave *top 3* grossers – Hum Saath Saath Hain, Biwi No. 1 and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
    The only actor to do so since 1999.

    Bollyarena team you should start highest grosser movie since 1989 because salman is no 1 star of today time and his one movie cuts of this list indicine website start 1989 to 2015 this is not problem for you so you should mention 1989 years thanks

  8. FAN_THE_500CR Reply

    see the diffrence between ATBB of SALLU and SRK with over 60cr club ATBB…well done both of this whereas
    The LAASH actor Pichda Khan RAJA HINDUSTANI 48cr not even 50cr…almost 15 cr behind compare to DDLJ

    • You are fool. Out of 12 ATBB , 5 are from Aamir and only 2 are from SRK. Considering All 5 SRK films from the list , the collection is 258.15 crore whereas considering all 6 Aamir film collection is 1000.2 crore.

  9. bollyarena as we knaow that BOI is the oldest site and they gave 38 cr for HSSH and declared it blockbuster then why u have not. I told the same thing to Indicine and they corrected the verdict and they said that they will correct the collection while updating.thanks

  10. Bhaijaan always in top – when it’s talk for higher grosser no one can beat Salman only competition from Aamir but he don’t do his movies regularly I’d he do Aamir can overtake Salman – I m Salman fan but iexcept that Aamir do more contant movie which always have chance to become higher grosser

  11. bollyarena top grossers of the year movie salman ki 8 time nahi 10 time hai 1989 maine piyar kiya aur 1998 kuch kuch hota hai.kuch kuch hota hai ke liye salman ko best saporting actor ka filmfare award se nawaza gaya tha. so please salman ki 10 movies kaho

  12. Salman Fan Reply

    Bollyarena I think you should start from 1989 because MPK is not only the biggest film of Salman Khan but it is also the Highest Grosser of the Decade (80’s). Or at least mention it in key facts. Salman Khan is the only actor to give 2 consecutive Highest Grosser of the Decade (MPK- 80’s and HAHK- 90’s). It’s a big achievement for any actor don’t you think. Plz mention it…

  13. real king Salman always top… Indian ki shan , India ki Jaan, sabka ek hi hai Bhai Jaan one & only Salman khan

  14. Balwan kashyap Reply

    Dhoom3 iss also HGOAT …aamir is only actor who gave 4 times highest grosser of all time…i think u r aamir hater

  15. Thanks Bollyarena for the good article. Salman had given 9 times the Higgest grosser of the
    years. This is the record by one and only Salman. Rest are very far to achieve this feat.


    • Check the list once again … Aamir gave 5 times ATBB , Raja Hindustani, Ghajini, 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3, PK

    • Abey joseph ki dum,sallu has 3 ATBB MPK,HAHK and BB
      Aamir has RH,3I,PK,D3,Dangal. 5 nos.

    Bollyarena where is Chennai express mohabbatein kal ho na ho my name is Khan

  18. TIGER- the real king Reply


    Wonderful article. Please add the year 1989 to it.

    Also add another point to the “some key facts” that is…..Salman is the only actor who has delivered top 3 grossers in a single year (1999- HSSH, Biwi no 1 & HDDCS). It’s a huge achievement. You must add it.

  19. poorly researched article……….various superhit movies of amir khan missing……lagaan, ghulam, sarfarosh…….amir khan now has become only actor to give ATBB in a row(3 times ) and all time highest grosser(3 times) also…….. highest collection in overseas(ALL 3 AK movies)…….Opening of all the clubs(100 250..300..350…AND 15 MILLION.. 20…30…45…million). in india and overseas…most no of national awards compared to both two khans……most no of movies in imdb list……….highest imdb rated movie(dangal)……..only actor in indian history to have least no of flop movies and many more……………..if u will analyse(based on box office no , weekend collection,week collection,highest collection,ATBBs, hits,super hitss etc) nearly 70% of Bollywood records belonged to AMIR KHAN……………….

  20. In sajaan salman is side hero
    Lead hero was sanjay datt
    So pls correct, sajaan belong to sanjay not sallu
