    Ranked: 15 Bollywood Blockbusters That Sold The Maximum Tickets At Box Office

    How should we really adjudge a film of its success with these constantly changing parameters at the box office? While we are being made to witness staggering growth by the year in terms of trade and number of screens, the best way to still identify the success of a film is by determining how many people bothered to see in a theater.

    Of course with the growing numbers of cinemas and screens, the footfalls have rapidly increased. But are you aware the record for most footfalls for a Bollywood movie is still held by a movie that released in the early 90’s? It’s funny isn’t it?

    Anyway, as we lose our focus in this complex game of 100, 200 and 300 crores, let’s rank these blockbusters based on the real benchmark of their success:

    Rank 15 – Kaho Na Pyaar Hai

    Tickets Sold: 3,06,00,000

    Rank 14 – Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham

    Tickets Sold: 3,13,23,000

    Rank 13 – 3 Idiots

    Tickets Sold: 3,17,35,000

    Rank 12 – Sultan

    Tickets Sold: 3,23,43,000

    Rank 11 – PK

    Tickets Sold: 3,50,76,000

    Rank 10 – Bajrangi Bhaijaan

    Tickets Sold: 3,54,12,000

    Rank 9 – Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

    Tickets Sold: 3,56,11,000

    Rank 8 – Dangal

    Tickets Sold: 3,69,32,000

    Rank 7 – Border

    Tickets Sold: 3,70,21,000

    Rank 6 – Raja Hindustani

    Tickets Sold: 4,09,56,000

    Rank 5 – Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

    Tickets Sold: 4,80,89,000

    Rank 4 – Gadar: Ek Prem Katha

    Tickets Sold: 5,09,54,000

    Rank 3 – Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (Hindi)

    Tickets Sold – 5,40,43,000

    Tickets Sold: 5,52,34,000

    Rank 1 – Hum Aapke Hain Koun!

    Tickets Sold: 7,39,67,000

    There you have it! Box office figures do not necessarily give us the picture we really need. While Hum Aapke Hain Koun may have been falling quite below in the list of highest grossing biggies, nothing can’t take away the fact that it has been watched by most number of people in theaters.
