Box office records of Hindi-Urdu films

From Indpaedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Jai Santoshi Maa (1974/ 5) remains the most profitable film ever made in any Indian language
Dosti (1964) had the second highest return on investment among Hindi-Urdu films.
Sairat (Marathi/ 2016), made on a shoestring budget, yielded one of the highest returns on investment in the history of Indian cinema
Bheja Fry: The most profitable film of the decade 2004-13. It, arguably, turned in the third highest profits in the history of Hindi-Urdu cinema.
Bahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017) has created some records that are unlikely to be erased for a long time: unless they are by Part 3 of the franchise.

This page is updated every day whenever there is a major box office success (e.g. Bahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017) or Dangal/ 摔跤吧!爸爸) or at the end of the half-year, whichever is earlier.

This page includes statistics on films like Bahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Kabali not because both films had Hindi- Urdu versions but because both films created all-India history.

This is a collection of articles archived for the excellence of their content.

The biggest Hindi-Urdu hits

Aamir Khan (the wrestler on top) plays the young Mahavir Phogat in Dangal/ 摔跤吧!爸爸 (2016)
PK's gross collection of Rs792 crore was for long the highest that an Indian film had ever earned (in nominal terms, not adjusted for inflation)
2015: The earnings of the biggest Indian hit Bajrangi Bhaijaan vis-à-vis the world’s biggest hit, Jurassic World The Times of India
Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma in Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai from Sultan (2016)
Rs542 crore were collected by Dhoom 3 (2013)
The stunning Bahubali: the Beginning (2015) seemed set to bridge this gap and become India’s no.1 or no. 2 hit. It reached no. 3 in terms of absolute collections at the box-office, beating Chennai Express. However, Bajrangi Bhaijaan quickly came up from behind, enthroned itself at no.3 and relegated Bahubali: The Beginning (2015) to no.4.

Dangal/ 摔跤吧!爸爸 (2016) Worldwide Total gross (all languages, i.e. Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Mandarin): ₹1,961 crore after 16 June 2017 (KoiMoi.com) / <> Overseas ₹1,422 crore after 16 June {i.e. ₹1,180 Cr in China + Taiwan gross ₹40 crore + other overseas circuits gross ₹202 crore} <>DomNet ₹387.38 crore / DomGr ₹542.34 crore in Hindi-Urdu (KoiMoi.com); DomGross ₹718 crore (Hindi, Tamil and Telugu) (Box Office India)


Bahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017) (all languages, i.e. Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam) Worldwide collection after 15 June: ₹1,684 crore {Domestic gross after 15 June: ₹1,373 crore (8 June break up: ₹728.53 cr in Hindi-Urdu + ₹625.76 crore in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam); and overseas ₹310 crore. <> Domestic net after 15 June was ₹1,066 crore (KoiMoi.com)

NOTE: (Box Office India added: “Despite going past Bahubali 2 in terms of worldwide Gross… Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion is still by far the bigger blockbuster as its worldwide share is ₹800 crore in all languages and Dangal lags well behind on ₹525 crore in all languages (after 31st May 2017).”


Bahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017) (Hindi-Urdu alone) After 11 June domestic net: ₹504.94 crore (Box Office India)/ The domestic gross after 8 June was ₹728.53 cr (KoiMoi.com). (The overseas earnings of the Hindi-Urdu version and, thus, its worldwide gross are difficult to calculate. Therefore, some trade analysts have allotted it the no.1 rank among Hindi-Urdu films on the basis of its domestic figures. After 24 May Box Office India had put the film’s overseas contribution at $12 million [₹78 crore] and its then worldwide gross at ₹750 crore. Box Office India also points out that the Hindi-Urdu version got a very partial release in Nizam / Andhra (both being huge territories for Hindi-Urdu films), Mysore and Tamil Nadu/ Kerala. Had this not been so, the Hindi-Urdu version would have earned about ₹55 crore more. (But, Indpaedia argues, the Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam versions would have earned that much less.)

Here, the film has multiplied the Friday numbers 10 times over already and is still counting.' 16 day ‘collections now stand at Rs413.75 crore*.

Bahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017) was released on the 28 April, i.e. towards the end of the month, and went on to create history.

Notes:

Dangal/ 摔跤吧!爸爸 was released in China in May 2017, more than four months after its world premiere. Its Chinese version was called "Shuai Jiao, Baba”, which means “Let’s Wrestle, Father”. The producers claimed it would release on a record-breaking 9,000 screens in China, but as per trade experts, it was released on 7,000 screens out of the country’s nearly 40,000 screens. According to reports, one of the big cinema chains did not show interest in the movie. (KoiMoi.com)

(KoiMoi.com, citing data reported by variety.com and collected by Ent group — a research centre of the Chinese entertainment industry) wrote after Dangal/ 摔跤吧!爸爸's second weekend/ 10days in China, 'The [second] weekend score was nearly triple its opening frame, when it scored $11.3 million. The cumulative in China is now on a par with film’s score, of $58.1 million, in India.

‘Exhibitors in China increased the screen count for “Dangal/ 摔跤吧!爸爸” to some 55,000 screenings per day on Saturday and Sunday.’

This was a historic moment for Indian cinema: never before has the collection from an overseas territory equalled, leave alone exceeding, the domestic collection. And this has come from China, a country that has no Indian or South Asian Diaspora.

Adapted from Koimoi.com

This chart will be updated once Kick's records settle down. After 24 days (end of 17 Aug 2014) Kick had earned Rs. 230.80 crore (domestic) and Rs 374.50 crore worldwide. It thus became the 3rd highest domestic earner ever (after Krrish 3 and Dhoom 3) and India’s fourth highest worldwide earner (after Dhoom 3/ Rs542 crore; Chennai Express/ Rs422 crore and 3 Idiots/ Rs395 crore.) This is the first time when a Salman film crossed the Rs 200-crore mark.

Return on investment

The three most profitable films in Hindi-Urdu history

Jai Santoshi Maa (1974/ 5) was the no. 3 hit among Hindi-Urdu films: 1975 , a year in which nos. 1 and 2 were the all-time blockbusters Sholay and Deewar respectively. ii) Its budget was so small that they could only afford Usha Mangeshkar to sing their songs and used the cheapest colour negative of the era.

Dosti (1964) delivered the second highest return on investment ever. i) It was the no.2 among Hindi-Urdu films: 1964 , behind only Sangam, which was not only no.1 in 1964 but was the second biggest hit of the 1950s and 60s put together (behind only Mughal é Azam), indeed, the 2nd biggest all-time hit since Kismet (1943). ii) Dosti’s budget was very low (a black and white film in the colour era; no stars) but not shoestring. It was made by Rajshri, which was an established distribution company. As a production house Rajshri had made a successful, A budget film, Aarti (no. 7 among Hindi-Urdu films: 1964 ). Therefore, Rajshri could afford good sets and top talents like Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar and Majrooh Sultanpuri and a respected director and writer.

Bheja Fry probably occupies the third slot in terms of profitability in the history of Hindi-Urdu cinema. i) Accounting for inflation its budget was smaller that that of Dosti and even Jai Santoshi Maa, because it had just one main set and hardly six speaking characters. ii) However, it was only the no. 10 grosser among Hindi-Urdu films: 2007, a year that gave us normal hits (Om Shanti Om) and not epochal blockbusters.

Sairat: 3,000% return?

Sairat (Marathi/ 2016) was made on a budget of Rs4 crore. It is said to have collected more than Rs.120 crore. With a 3,000 per cent return on investment Sairat might hold the all India record for the highest return on investment in the history of Indian cinema.

ROI: 2006 onwards

KoiMoi.com: 2013 <>KoiMoi.com: 2014 <> KoiMoi.com: first half of 2015 <> KoiMoi.com, July 2015

These four sources have structural dissimilarities which Indpaedia had to moderate.

KoiMoi.com: 2013 has used the words ‘two times,’ ‘six times’ etc instead of giving percentages. ‘Two times’ normally means ‘double,’ while ‘double’ always means 100% (and NOT 200%). Therefore, we have interpreted ‘six times’ as 500%. (I.e. original investment plus 500% more.)

The Times of India, too, has used this accepted method. They have relied on figures given by BoxOfficeIndia.com.

In Indpaedia’s year-wise ranks from 1940 to date, we have cited BoxOfficeIndia for all years from 1940 to the present; IbosNetwork.com for almost all years from 1931 to 2011, after which Ibos seems to have shifted; and KoiMoi.com from 2011 onwards, the year when it burst on the scene and quickly became as reliable and respected as BoxOfficeIndia. Of course, as happens with Hollywood films, too, there are small differences of approach, and thus, of conclusions between different agencies. Indpaedia, being a neutral archive, has tried to present as many points of view as possible. Hyperlinks to all years will be found under ‘See also’ at the bottom of this page.

The chart below is selective and restricted to the 21st century. Therefore, ranks have not being awarded.

For some reason the agencies didnot consider the ROI of big-budget films. By Dec 2014, PK had an ROI of 191%. Just on that basis it deserved a place on this list. After its bumper release in China PK's ROI only got better.

A selective, 21st century chart

All films with a return of 100 per cent or more, and released in or after 2013 [till 30 Dec 2016], have been included in the chart below. For the years between 2000 and 2012 only record-breaking films have been included.

The chart (below) will be updated twice a year, to allow films to finish their theatrical run.

2017: Dangal/ 摔跤吧!爸爸 had made a 322% Profit till 23 Jan 2017.

2017: Bahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017) (Hindi-Urdu alone) ‘was acquired for Rs80 crore and Rs10 crore were spend on promotion, which takes its total cost of acquisition to Rs 90 crore. [In 9 days] the film had collected Rs 292 crore i the domestic market and made a profit of Rs202 crore which took its profit percentage to 224%’ (KoiMoi.com)

Best return on investment: 2004-13

��� Bheja Fry, Aashiqui 2 gave best return on investment in last decade

Avijit Ghosh & Atul Thakur,TNN | Sep 8, 2014 The Times of India

Bheja Fry, Aashiqui 2 gave best return on investment in last decade

Bheja Fry, an Indianised version of the French comedy Le Diner De Cons, collected Rs 12.6 crore worldwide. The film’s overall budget was Rs 1.5 crore

Let us look at a movie's investment-return ratio to decide on the magnitude of its success. In other words, dividing what a movie earns with what it spends — estimates of production costs plus prints and publicity expenses.

2004-13

A close look at 500 films released between the years 2004-13 (the top 50 money-making films from each year) with theatre collection figures provided by trade website, boxofficeindia.com reveals:

1) From a strictly investment-return ratio point of view, the biggest hit during the period is Bheja Fry. The film, an Indianised version of the French comedy Le Diner De Cons, collected Rs 12.6 crore worldwide. As per boxoffice.com figures, the film's overall budget was Rs 1.5 crore and it grossed Rs 12.6 crore worldwide. This gave it an investment-return ratio of 739%, better than any other films. Bheja Fry's producer Sunil Doshi says that the film's actual production cost was Rs 1.18 crore. "It was self-funded and I had to mortgage my house. There was hardly any money left for advertising. But the film became a sleeper hit following huge word of mouth publicity," he says.

2) Aashiqui2, which had a budget of Rs 15 crore and grossed Rs 109.4 crore worldwide giving it an investment-return ratio of 629%.

3) Lage Raho Munna Bhai (548%)

4) Vivah (518%)

5) Vicky Donor (513%).

Astoundingly, there's no Khan, no Hrithik Roshan, no Akshay Kumar, no Ajay Devgn and no Ranbir Kapoor in this list.

Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), starring Sanjay Dutt, is the lone movie with a big star of its time.

2013

Interestingly, following the ROI (return on investment) method, another film trade website, koimoi.com, ranked

1) Aashiqui2 as the top film of 2013

2) Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

3) ABCD

4) Fukrey

5) Grand Masti.

Movies which fetched much more cash at the box-office were respectively ranked

7) Chennai Express

11) Dhoom 3

13) Krish 3.

Well-known Mumbai based distributor Shyam Shroff says that judging a film's through investment-return ratio is the right way to look at its success. "It is also noticed many a times that in spite of huge box-office figures, the films actually run into losses.’

"If one strips the top five films to the barebones, at their core of each of them is a brave idea. And a good idea is like blood in a shark pool. Even the conservative Vivah had freshness. In Aashiqui 2, the hero commits suicide; something rare in Bollywood these days," says writer-director Mahesh Bhatt.

Debutant directors who made major hits

Seven Bollywood directors whose debuts crossed the 100-crore mark

Meena Iyer,TNN | Aug 19, 2014 The Times of India

Make no mistake about it. Rajkumar Hirani's name still crops up first when you speak about talent.

And Aditya Chopra's Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge has been running in a theatre in Mumbai for 19 years in succession. Even 26 years after he started his career, Salman Khan considers his mentor Sooraj Barjatya's debut directorial Maine Pyar Kiya a Hindi cinema milestone.

Karan Johar’s debut film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was an all-time blockbuster, the equivalent of a Rs300 crore film of 2014. And the biggest daddy of them all, Ramesh Sippy, was only 28-years-old when Sholay released in 1975, though it was his third film. His first film Andaz (1971), released when he was 24, was a success. His second film Seeta aur Geeta (1972) was the no.1 hit of its year, and like a Rs300 crore film of 2014. He was 25 in 1972.]

However, since '100-crore' films were not a part of Bollywood at that point; (the business has more than doubled in the last six years); Raju, Adi and Sooraj do not have the distinction of making films that have crossed the coveted mark.

In fact, Sajid Nadiadwala leads the list of debutant directors who have crossed the Rs.100-crore mark (Kick has even gone beyond the Rs.200-crore mark). Some others who have struck gold with their debut films are, Malayalam filmmaker Siddique, who entered Bollywood with Bodyguard; and AR Murugadoss, who found himself in the enviable slot with Ghajini, the film with which he crossed over to Hindi cinema.

Middle-budget films that earned Rs.100 crore+

Bollywood films that earned Rs 100 crore without superstars

The Times of India

Queen earned Rs61 crore in 2014 and Mary Kom Rs64 crore, which is why they are not in this list, despite Queen’s huge return on investment because of its low budget. Mary Kom would have cost more because Priyanka Chopra would have charged much more than Ranaut.

The Times of India has compiled a list of middle-budget, superstar-less films that have earned more than Rs.100 crore.


Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013): A gripping screenplay and dialogues by Prasoon Joshi, detailed direction by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar’s dedication and hard work, worked for the film.

Grand Masti (2013): The film was full of sexual jokes and innuendos. Grand Masti became the first adult comedy film to attain Rs 100 crore status. Earlier, success stories of adult comedies like Kya Kool Hain Hum and Delhi Belly were enough to prove that in India, there is a market for adult comedies.

Race 2 ( 2013): The film which was made in a budget of Rs 60 crore earned Rs 100.45 crore in two weeks of its release. Despite bad reviews from critics, the film did well all thanks to being a multi-starrer (and a slickly told, fast-paced story)

Ek Villain (2014): Though Ek Villain didn't have great content, but the music of the film and the way it was packaged, and bringing Riteish Deshmukh in a negative role, worked in the favour of the film.

2 States (2014): This romantic comedy featuring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt was based on Chetan Bhagat's novel 2 States, and broke the jinx of Indian novels not becoming successful films.

Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015): A first rate script and Kangana's performance as Tanu and Kusum brought in the profits.

Top 10 highest-grossing Hindi films worldwide as in 2013

Dec 9, 2013 The Times of India// 'Kick' box office: Salman Khan's film makes Rs 50 cr in two days! The Times of India TNN | Jul 27, 2014


Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! was the first Bollywood film to cross 1 billion worldwide. However, after its influx and unprecedented achievements, Hindi cinema witnessed many records and records shattering entertainers (read films). In the impending time, surely you’ll observer many spectacular flicks but still the records set by these movies won’t be easy to smash. The worldwide gross figures are given here after adding dubbed Telugu and Tamil version of Bollywood films.

Krrish Each time evil awakens in the world, a superhero rekindles his superpowers. This time Krrish is back, with thrice the power to destroy the demonic Kaal and his bastion of beastly mutants. In 'Superhero' form - caped, masked, winged - with muscles of steel and hearts of gold, Hrithik aka Krrish saves the world from the evil intentions. Amazingly, the sci-fi flick took four days to reach the 100-crore club (in India) and just 10 days to cross 200 crore. The movie took the least number of days to enter the elite club. The movie is still having a good run at the box office and it remains to be seen if it will start the 300-crore club in India.

Chennai Express If you have an agile, good-looking and super-willing star named Shah Rukh Khan and a stunner like Deepika Padukone, you don’t need a script and logic. Chennai Express is a hard-core commercial film with a romantic angle. The story is about a man's travel from Mumbai to Rameshwaram and the bizarre happenings during his journey. However, this hilarious journey surely teaches you about the serious relationships in life. Director Rohit Shetty's this blockbuster bonanza has grossed Rs 424 crore world over.

3 Idiots Aamir Khan, Sharman Joshi and R Madhavan – the 3 Idiots are perfect archetypes of the new age Indian who is essentially a non-conformist, questioning outmoded givens, choosing to live life on his own terms and chartering new roads that consciously skirt the rat race. The high point of the film is the fact that director Rajkumar Hirani says so much, and more, without losing his sense of humour and the sheer lightness of being. The film is a laugh riot, despite being high on fundas. No doubt, if it had earned Rs 392 crore worldwide.

Ek Tha Tiger Salman’s eponymous secret agent avatar scours the world in search of enemies of the nation and dispatches them to the devil without breaking into a sweat! But when this brave heart falls in love, even he has to seek cover to realise his dream. Ek Tha Tiger is more evolved and entertaining. Salman`isms' are rationed. And the hero does so many unbelievable stunts, it makes you ponder on whether- Bollywood's answer to Spider Man, Superman and Batman; is apna Sal`man.' The last Kat-Sallu romance thriller, ETT earned Rs 310 crore worldover. According to Koimoi, Kabir Khan's film made Rs 47.50 crores in its first 2 days.

Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani An alive, fresh vibe dominates Ayan Mukerji's Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani and invigorates you through its entire run. The story is not novel, but the treatment is A-grade. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone carve a smooth path for the movie to ride on. It’s their effort that brings grace to the movie. The movie reunites Ranbir-Deepika onscreen and in fact the film created a lot of buzz, ever since it was conceptualised. Thus, earning Rs 301 crore worldwide was not a big deal for Ayan’s directorial.

Dabangg 2 sees Salman Khan reprising his role as Chulbul Pandey, a police officer in Uttar Pradesh who styles himself after Robin Hood, robbing from the bad guys to help the needy. If the success of the movie has confounded the critics, they can agree on one thing: Dabangg 2 is Salman Khan and Salman Khan is Dabangg 2. The success of the movie again cemented Salman’s box office power and helped it to earn Rs 250 crore worldwide.

Bodyguard A Salman Khan film almost always defies all logic, simply because it follows its own norms at the box office, irrespective of the quality of the product. Bodyguard had inculcated all the vital elements for the crowds milling, cheering and growing nearly hysterical in this trademark Salman touch. This essentially means a high-on-testosterone Salman, a pelvic-pushing Salman, a devil-may-care Salman, a can-do-anything Salman, a human tornado Salman, a goofy-in-love Salman, and yes, above all, a shirtless Salman. Stir up this cocktail and rest assured, Rs 230 crore worldwide trade is not far away.

Dabangg For anybody who wants to know what is the on-screen definition of Bollywood, Dabangg is truly a text book fare. It's loud, crazy, exaggerated, larger-than-life, totally make-believe, comic book like, generously peppered with the mandatory desi tadka of songs and dances with literally oozing star charisma. Most importantly, it's only meant to entertain. No, this isn't meant for people who are looking for different cinema. Nor is it meant for the viewer who likes movies to appeal to his head. Yet, for those who celebrate the pleasure of mainstream masala movie lore and swear by its popcorn quotient, Dabangg is the greatest getaway of the season. And a reward – Rs 215 crore worldwide. Not bad.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is the swan song of Yash Chopra, the big daddy of romance. Every frame is picture perfect, the emotions are well nuanced. The movie though doesn't have the intensity of some of Yash Chopra's earlier romances like Daag, Kabhie-Kabhie, Silsila and Chandni but still it has the stamp of the man who made some of the best romantic fare in Bollywood. Rs 211 crore business worldwide though a meager and below expected by the cinema pundits.

Don 2 is a classic action/crime thriller that doesn't let go, even for a moment. More importantly, the plot has been finely crafted, with every twist and turn falling into place like a complicated albeit neat little jigsaw. With a canvas that goes on a cross-country ride -- Thailand, Malaysia, Zurich, Berlin -- the film challenges you to hop aboard its high speed scuttle and attentively follow the exploits of its glamorous gangster. The high point of the film is Shah Rukh's delineation of the character of the Don which helped the movie to mint Rs 206 crore at the box office.

Dhoom 3 (starring Aamir Khan) released on Christmas 2013 and holds the record of the fastest film to have made Rs 100 crore.

Kick According to reports in Koimoi, by the afternoon of its 11th day Kick had collected Rs 313 crore (Rs 50 crore overseas; Rs 262 crores domestic) and had become the sixth highest overseas grosser of all times; overall it was the 5th biggest hit (behind only Dhoom 3, Krrish 3, Chennai Express and 3 Idiots).

A note of caution regarding the figures cited

Note of caution: Some middle-aged people (including some actresses) have three sets of ages: their true age, the age they pretend to be (which is lower than the truth) and an age higher than the actual (in order to claim senior citizen benefits). Please see Private lives of Indian (Mumbai) stars for the ages claimed by Rekha and Dimple Kapadia when they joined the films.

Before the courts Smt. Dimple Kapadia must have claimed an age higher than the one given to the media. If she did not do so then how was her marriage to Mr Khanna legal? Under the law it would have been a child marriage and thus null and void.

Similarly, most Hindi-Urdu films have three box office collection figures: the actual collection, the figure ‘leaked’ to the media, and the much lower figure given to the tax authorities.

That said, even if the collection figures are somewhat incorrect, the box office ranks given are normally correct, because a similar error is made with all films. This will be seen in the ‘Example’ box below. Bollywood Hungama and boxofficeindia.com have given very different figures, but the ‘ranks’ are exactly the same, with no exceptions.

For that reason, Indpaedia has cited two or more authorities in its yearwise lists of the most successful Hindi-Urdu films of each year and the most popular Hindi-Urdu songs, also of each year. (Even for the Binaca Geet Mala years we have, in addition to BGM, cited Mr Bhargava and added songs with a classical base.)


Rohit Khilnani | Box-Office Collection: Who can you trust? TNN | Feb 6, 2017, The Times of India


Box Office Collection Figures: Who can you trust?

Do you believe film posters and newspaper headlines which scream that they have minted Rs 100 crore at the box-office? Even though corporate and studios have entered the film market and multiplexes have mushroomed in most cities, which can track real time figures of the number of people watching a film at any given point of time, why is there not one body in India that can give us authentic collections? Many a time, producers share inflated box-office numbers ; their ads and social media campaign proudly claim that their film has crossed the 100-crore mark, while the reality is far from that.

It's surprising anyone in the biggest film industry in the world can claim any numbers and there is little that can be done about it. Producer Mukesh Bhatt spoke to TOI and said, "We should be in the business of making movies and not making numbers. I can tell you, earlier, not one ticket number was inflated. Inflation of box-office numbers is a tragedy we are dealing with!"

One of the reasons why a system is not put in place is because this system works businesswise. The audience, on seeing a film's poster that says it has made Rs 100 crore, does not challenge it and mostly believes it - and that's clearly what the producers want. Producers want to compete with one another and so do the stars. When their films do not touch the 100-crore mark, they will claim it did, just to be in the race.

A lot of studios follow boxofficeindia.com for figures, where numbers are sometimes 20 to 25 per cent lower than what the producers claim a lot of times. A distributor, who didn't want to be named, told TOI, "BoxofficeIndia.com has authentic numbers, most from the fraternity follow this when tracking one another's films. But when it comes to their own films, they track the sites that show inflated numbers."

The disparity in box-office numbers can even be seen in the case of the big releases of Jan 2017, 'Raees' and 'Kaabil'. According to Boxofficeindia.com, Shah Rukh Khan's 'Raees' collected approximately Rs 1,10,05,00,000 in 9 days. However, according to Bollywoodhungama.com, the same film was reported to have collected Rs 122.36 crore at the end of Week One. For 'Kaabil'. Boxofficeindia.com reported that the film had earned approximately Rs 65,74,00,000 in 9 days. In sharp contrast, Bollywoodhungama.com reported that Hrithik Roshan's film garnered Rs 90.55 crore in the same span.

Such disparity was even seen in the case of Diwali release 'Shivaay'. While Bollywoodhungama.com reported that the lifetime collections of the Ajay Devgn-starrer were Rs 100.33 crore, Boxofficeindia.com reported that it had earned Rs 84,83,50,000 (Total Nett).

Example

Indpaedia's point is that even if there is a disparity between the figures (in crore rupees) given by the two box-office trackers, the ranks of films on the two charts are almost identical. Meaning that one agency is somewhat conservative with all films and the other a little overstated, again with all films.
