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

This is a ranking of the highest grossing Indian films which includes films from various languages based on the conservative global box office estimates as reported by reputable sources. There is no official tracking of domestic box office figures within India, and Indian sites publishing data are frequently pressured to increase their domestic box office estimates.[1]

Indian films have been screened in markets around the world since the early 20th century,[2] as of 2003, there are markets in over 90 countries where films from India are screened.[3] During the first decade of the 21st century, there was a steady rise in the ticket price, a tripling in the number of theaters and an increase in the number of prints of a film being released, which led to a large increase in the box office collections.[4]

The majority of highest-grossing Indian films are Bollywood (Hindi) films, as of 2014, Bollywood represents 43% of the net box office revenue in India, while Tamil and Telugu cinema represent 36%, and other regional industries constitute 21%.[5] See List of highest-grossing films in India for domestic gross figures and List of highest-grossing Indian films in overseas markets for overseas gross figures.

Global gross figures

The following list shows India's top 25 highest-grossing films, which include films from all the Indian languages, the figures are not adjusted for inflation.

  13. ^ Box office gross values of 600–675 crore were reported for Kabali in the first 13 days by several organisations including Financial Express and Indian Express,[131][132] which were more than double the estimates made by other sources.[133] International Business Times (IBT) and Firstpost criticized these estimates as inflated, explaining the discrepancy as due in part to the addition of "pre-release business" figures, such as music and satellite rights sales of 200 crore,[134] being factored into the box office sales totals.[133] Firstpost wrote, "More conservative estimates put Kabali’s collections at around Rs 300 crores from worldwide ticket sales."[134] IBT's analysts in August 2016 estimated the film's worldwide gross total of its first 13 days at around 3.5 billion (US$54 million).[135]
    Figures given in December 2016 by Financial Express indicated an estimated domestic gross of 215 crore and an international gross of 262 crore, which total 477 crore.[136] A figure of USD$77 million given by Forbes in May 2017 converted to approximately 493–499 crore.[137] According to International Business Times in October 2017, Kabali's final worldwide gross was around 286 crore (US$44 million).[138]
