1000 Crore Club

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

1000 Crore Club is an unofficial designation by the Indian film trade and the media, related to Indian language films that have grossed 1000 crore (10 billion Indian rupees) or more worldwide. It emerged in May 2017, when two Indian films crossed the 1,000 crore (US$160 million) milestone.[1] The South Indian film Baahubali 2: The Conclusion became the first Indian film to gross over 1000 crore worldwide,[2] it was followed by the Aamir Khan starring Bollywood film Dangal, which is the highest grossing Indian film, expanding the club to 1700 crore,[3] 1800 crore[4] and 1900 crore,[5] before creating the 2,000 crore (US$310 million) club,[6] and becoming the fifth highest-grossing non-English language film of all time. The 1000 crore club was preceded by the 100 crore club.

History[edit]

Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017), which released on 28 April 2017,[7] became the first Indian film to cross the 1,000 crore (US$160 million) and 1,500 crore (US$230 million) marks, in May 2017, and briefly became the highest-grossing Indian film worldwide, before being overtaken by Dangal. Baahubali 2 is the highest-grossing film in India, where it has grossed 1,417 crore (US$220 million).[8] Overseas, it is the highest-grossing Indian film in the United States ($21 million), where it became the first Indian film to cross $20 million, as well as becoming the first Indian film to gross over $10 million in the United Arab Emirates.[9] Baahubali 2 sold an estimated 105 million tickets (10.5 crore) during its box office run, the highest footfalls for any film in India.[10][11]

Dangal (2016), following its Chinese release on 5 May 2017,[12] became the highest-grossing Indian film and fifth highest-grossing non-English language film of all time, crossing 2,000 crore (US$310 million) worldwide, making it the first Indian film to gross $300 million worldwide and one of the top 30 highest-grossing 2016 films (surpassing the $299.5 million gross of Alice Through the Looking Glass, starring Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska).[13] Dangal is also the highest-grossing sports film of 2017, and Disney's fourth highest-grossing film of 2017.[14]

Dangal is the first Indian film to exceed $100 million[15] and 1,000 crore overseas,[16] crossing 1,400 crore (US$220 million) in international markets, including ¥1.29 billion (US$194 million) in China[17][18] and 41 crore (US$6.4 million) in Taiwan.[19] Its overseas gross in China more than doubled its domestic gross of $84.4 million in India. In China, Dangal became the 16th highest-grossing film of all time, the 8th highest-grossing foreign film,[20][21] the highest-grossing non-Hollywood foreign film (surpassing Japanese anime film Your Name),[22] the leggiest box office release (cumulative gross 83 times its opening day haul,[21][23] surpassing Zootopia),[24] had the most consecutive days with a ¥10 million (US$2 million) gross (surpassing the 30 days of Transformers: Age of Extinction)[25] and $1 million gross[21] (38 days),[26] was the highest-grossing film in May 2017 (ahead of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales[27] and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2),[15] and is the year's second highest-grossing foreign film (after The Fate of the Furious).[28] In 47 days, the film had 44,445,270 admissions at the Chinese box office.[29] Aamir Khan's earnings from Dangal is estimated to be 300 crore (US$47 million),[30] the highest payday for a non-Hollywood actor.[31]

When adjusted for inflation, the first Indian film to gross an adjusted 1,000 crore was the 1960 Dilip Kumar starrer Mughal-e-Azam, which earned an estimated 2,000 crore in 2016 value.[n 1] Mughal-e-Azam's adjusted gross was the highest in Indian cinema for more than five decades,[32] up until Dangal surpassed it in 2017. The first Indian film to gross an adjusted 1,000 crore overseas was the 1982 Mithun Chakraborty starrer Disco Dancer at the Soviet box office,[n 2] which made it the highest-grossing Indian film overseas up until it was surpassed by Dangal in 2017.
