There is no official tracking of figures and sites publishing data are frequently pressured to increase their estimates.[1] 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 an large increase in the box office collections.[2]

During the 1940s cinema in South India accounted for nearly half of India's cinema halls[3] which had grown to 75% of all film revenues in India as of 2009.[4] Indian films have been screened in markets around the world since the early 20th century.[3] As of 2003, there are markets in over 90 countries where films from India are screened.[5]

The figures are not adjusted for inflation. Adjusted for inflation, estimates for the 1975 film Sholay reach as high as 3.00 billion (US$47 million)[6][7]
