Highest Grossers of the Year from 1989-2016:

Dangal has become the highest grosser of the year and is Aamir Khan’s 7th film which has achieved this feat. In recent years, whenever Aamir Khan has delivered HGTY, it has also been highest grosser of all time (Ghajini, 3 Idiots and PK) and Dangal will also do the same.

Salman Khan still remains ahead of all its contemporaries as he has 9 HGOTY. Aamir Khan is at the second spot but he does few films and is unlikely to surpass Salman soon. SRK is at 3rd position but he has been searching for HGOTY since 9 years. In fact since 2007, only Salman Khan and Aamir Khan has delivered highest grosser of the year and that too by a big margin from other actors.

Also, check out some other 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 their debut
♦ Salman has delivered Top 2 grossers of the year 4 times (1999,2011,2012,2015)
♦ SRK has given top 2 grossers of the year twice (1995 and 2004).
♦ Hrithik has also done it once in 2006 (Krrish and Dhoom 2)

  1. Good analysis . Anil Kapoor has 2 Highest Grossers of the year as the entire credit of No Entry cannot go to Salman . Salman played the supporting role in NE . So Anil Kapoor should be credited for No Entry . Apart from this everything about this article is pitch perfect .

  4. In Saajan too Salman played the supporting role. Hero was Sanjay dutt.

    Bollyarena, get your facts right.

  5. Disaster khans Reply

    Totally fake article. It is completely biased article. Bollyarena always writes good about khans over other bollywood actors

  6. In Saajan too, Salman was playing supporting actor to Sanjay Dutt.
