Hollywood release The Jungle Book literally stormed the box office earlier this year. The film went on to collect 185 crore in India and eventually declared all time blockbuster.

The Jungle Book is the second highest grossing film of 2016 in India. It is only behind Salman Khan’s Sultan. The film was released just one week before Shahrukh Khan’s Fan and it was considered to be a risky move. However TJB surpassed all expectations and started to beat Fan on weekdays despite being in the second week.

Now The Jungle Book has broken some records on its TV Premiere too. The film has become the most watched Hollywood film on TV. It has also beaten other Bollywood biggies like Dilwale, Fan and Bajirao Mastani.

The tops 2 grossers of 2016 are Sultan and The Jungle Book. It shows that the audience prefers films that are deep rooted in Indian culture. Aamir Khan’s Dangal is expected to be huge too.

Below is the list of most watched films of 2016 in India on their TV Premiere.

  1. Flying jatt was awesome. Audience should go to theater for good movie. Sultan was decent but not the best.
