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$47 million) in 2009.[6][7]

Notes:

  1. ^ Box office gross values of 6–6.75 billion were reported for Kabali in the first 13 days by several organisations including Financial Express and Indian Express,[17][18] which were more than double the estimates made by other sources.[19] International Business Times (IBT) and Firstpost criticized these estimates as inflated, explaining the discrepancy as due in part to the addition of "pre-release business" figures, such as music and satellite rights sales of 2 billion,[20] being factored into the box office sales totals.[19] Firstpost wrote, "More conservative estimates put Kabali’s collections at around Rs [3 billion] from worldwide ticket sales."[20] IBT's analysts estimated the film's worldwide gross total of its first 13 days at around 3.5 billion (US$54 million).[21] Figures released in December 2016 by Financial Express indicated an estimated domestic gross of 215 crore and an international gross of 262 crore, which total 477 crore.[15] A figure of USD$77 million released by Forbes in May 2017 converted to approximately 493–499 crore.[16]
