Bollywood Movies That Can Be Called A Part Of The 1000 Crore Club!
When we talk about films and profit, 100 crores is generally considered the benchmark of success. With more and more 100 crores movies being made, the budget of films now has also been raised. There are so many movies, like ‘Tubelight’ for example, that had managed to gross more than 100 crores at the box office but are flops.
Needless to say, the benchmark for humongous success has now got manifold higher. Today we have something called the 1000 crore club, and films are actually heading towards this huge figure.
While there have been only two Indian films that have reached this mark, the adjusted gross for many films will actually touch the mark. It means that there are films that released long back and made a lot of money at the box-office, the equivalent to which today would be some 1000 crores. Let us have a look at the films that have an adjusted nett collection of 1000 crores:
Dangal is the highest grossing Indian film of all times. In fact, it is the fifth highest grossing non-English film in the world. Needless to say, it has an unimaginable collection of almost 2000 crores. It made 1,995 crore worldwide. The growth in its collection was spurred after it was released in China!
2. Baahubali: The Conclusion

Needless to say, it quickly rolled to 1000 crores in a matter of some weeks. It was also the highest grossing Indian film for sometime before Dangal overtook it. Its total collection is 1708 crores worldwide.
