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.
