2017 has not fared well for Bollywood as some big budget movies failed to perform well on Box office. With only 6 movies crossing the 100 Crore mark, the industry is going through depressing times. With only India’s Magnus Opus Baahubali 2: Hindi making some huge profits, the other highest-grossing movies of Bollywood couldn’t bring much relief to the industry.
Following are the top 10 highest grossing movies of Bollywood in 2017 in India.
Baahubali 2: Hindi
Not only it is one of the best performing movies in India but also is the highest-grossing Indian movie of all time in America. Within India, the film has made INR 511.30 crore and is the top earner at the box office in 2017.
While this may be not the best from Shah Rukh Khan but it did fairly well on Box office within India. With only INR 139 crore, the film is not the best by King khan.
Contending with Raees, Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil wasn’t an instant hit. However, it managed to made INR 126.85 crore and generated positive reviews.
Salman’s Khan movie on Eid comes with high expectations. However, this was the first time that his movie couldn’t perform well on box office despite having no major contender. The film earned INR 121.25 crore, with one disappointing box office record.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha
When Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan’s movies couldn’t deliver, the industry pinned its hope on Akshay Kumar. And he did fairly well. Releasing on Independence Day, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is doing a good business and has already earned INR 117.90 crore.
Jolly LLB 2
Another Akshay Kumar’s starrer in the highest grossing movies of Bollywood in 2017. Jolly LLB 2 has done a fairly well with a revenue of INR 117 crore only.
Badrinath Ki Dulhania
The sweet romantic movie featuring Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan has generated good response among the audience. Not only their chemistry earned great reviews, the film itself made INR 116.60.
A short budget movie addressing a strong subject, Hindi medium proves why good acting and script always perform well on box office. Although the movie made just INR 69 crore but Saba Qamar, Irfan Khan and Deepak Dobriyal got much praise for their performances.
Jab Harry Met Sejal
Hopes were high for Jab Harry Met Sejal but this is the first time, Imtiaz Ali failed to deliver. Despite having Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma, the film couldn’t perform well on box office and failed miserably. It just made INR 62.50 crore.
Based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel, the movie was one of the most anticipated movies of 2017. However, it couldn’t do justice to the book and falls short of earning much. With INR 60.28, it managed to be among the top 10 highest grossing movies of 2017.
With only Baahubali managed to smash box office records, 2017 is overall a low budget year for the film industry. Seems like the audience is looking for fresh content and faces to boost the industry in the coming years.
