2017 Is Bad For Box Office? Wait Till You See This Unthinkable Record That It’s Making

What can only be thought of as one of the most disastrous year at box office in a long-long time, 2017 is on its way to achieve something magnanimous. Yes, the same year that made audiences struggle for a handful of box office hits, is interestingly showing a different trend in numbers. Yes, Judwaa 2 has crossed the 100 crore mark today and with this 2017 is officially on its way to become the year to deliver most 100 crore hits.

While we may have become witness to some to upsets like Tubelight, Jab Harry Met Sejal and Jagga Jasoos, somehow the number of 100 crore movies this year are going to reach the two figure mark. Here’s how every year has fared in terms of 100 crores ever since 2008 saw the first film enter the coveted club:

2008 - 1

2009 - 1

2010 - 2

2011 - 5

2012 - 9

2013 - 8

2014 - 9

2015 - 7

2016 – 8

Now with Judwaa 2 entering the 100 crore club, 2017 has 8 movies in the club with as many as three biggies waiting to release. It is almost certain the remaining three biggies that are Golmaal Again, Padmavati and Tiger Zinda Hai will also enter the club and with this 2017 will have 11 entries in the 100 crore club.

Here are the movies that have made it to the 100 crore club this year along with the ones that will enter for sure:
