List of highest-grossing Indian films

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a ranking of the highest grossing Indian films which includes films from various languages based on the conservative global box office estimates as reported by reputable sources. There is no official tracking of figures and sites publishing data are frequently pressured to increase their estimates.[1]

During the 1940s cinema in South India accounted for nearly half of India's cinema halls[2] which had grown to 75% of all film revenues in India as of 2009.[3] Indian films have been screened in markets around the world since the early 20th century.[2] As of 2003, there are markets in over 90 countries where films from India are screened.[4] During the first decade of the 21st century, there was a steady rise in the ticket price, a tripling in the number of theaters and an increase in the number of prints of a film being released, which led to a large increase in the box office collections.[5]

The figures are not adjusted for inflation. Adjusted for inflation, estimates for the 1975 film Sholay reach as high as 300 crore (US$45 million).[6][7]

Madhava Prasad traces the origin of the term to a 1932 article in the American Cinematographer by Wilford E. Deming, an American engineer who apparently helped produce the first Indian sound picture. At this point, the Calcutta suburb of Tollygunge was the main centr of film production in India. Deming refers to the area as Tollywood, since it already boasted two studios with 'several more projected' (Prasad, 2003) 'Tolly', rhyming with 'Holly', got hinged to 'wood' in the Anglophone Indian imagination, and came to denote the Calcutta studios and, by extension, the local film industry. Prasad surmises: 'Once Tollywood was made possible by the fortuitous availability of a half-rhyme, it was easy to clone new Hollywood babies by simply replacing the first letter' (Prasad, 2003). From Cinema of India: Sarkar, Bhaskar (2008).
