The following are the highest-grossing Indian-Punjabi films, as of August 2019.

Global gross figures[edit]

Rhythm Boyz Entertainment and White Hill Studios both have produced the most films, 7 films each in the list.

Carry on Jatta 2 (2018) is the highest grossing Punjabi film of all time since June 2018. Worldwide collections of the film are est. 57 crore which involves ₹40 crore in India and ₹17 crore at Overseas. Also, the film is the highest grossing Punjabi film in India[1] while at overseas the highest-grossing film is Chaar Sahibzaade (2014) which has grossed $3.57 million at overseas.[2] Major markets for Punjabi films are India, Canada, United States, Australia, United Kingdom, and New Zealand with Canada being the biggest Overseas market.[3]

Most of the films which are in the list are romantic comedy or comedy films. Nikka Zaildar and Bambukat fame Ammy Virk in an interview said, “You can’t experiment much. If you make an experimental film in Punjab, then I don’t think it will work right now as the market is not that big. If the market grows, then more type of genres like action and suspense can also do well.”[4][5] On this chart, films are ranked by the revenues from theatrical exhibition at their nominal value, along with the highest positions they attained. Twenty-one films in total have grossed in excess of ₹20 crore worldwide, of which only two have grossed over ₹50 crore, with Carry On Jatta 2 ranked in the top position.
