Rs 100 Crore Club: Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh – Top 10 Bollywood Actors (Male) With Maximum Number of Films, Ranked
Rs 100 Crore Club: Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh - Top 10 Bollywood Actors (Male) With Maximum Number of Films. Ranked

In 2008, Aamir Khan's Ghajini did something that no other Bollywood movie had done before - it became the first Indian film to break into the Rs 100 crore club at the domestic box office (inflation not considered). Since then that one line has been considered as a benchmark for trade experts to determine if a film is a blockbuster or not, and every superstar is expected to make sure their movies do enter this club, failing which their films are considered flops (which also made them desperate enough to inflate the collections of the film). Not Salman Khan, Ranbir Kapoor or Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff is The Real Box Office Superstar of 2018 - Here's Why.

Now we are in 2019, and our movies have crossed Rs 200, Rs 300 and even Rs 500 crore mark. Being in the club of the highest grossers is no longer a privilege of an Aamir Khan or a Salman Khan, as Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor have shown the audiences last year. Crossing the Rs 100 crore benchmark is no longer a benchmark of calling a film a hit, thanks to the increasing budgets of films, which is why Thugs of Hindostan is deemed a flop. Having said, that it is still considered a prestigious achievement by fans and producers, with the latest entrant being Ranveer Singh's SimmbaSimmba Box Office Collection Day 5: Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty Score Their Fourth and Eighth Rs 100 Crore Grosser Respectively.

In this special feature, we look at the top 10 male Bollywood stars who have had the maximum number of films in the Rs 100 crore club and have ranked them from the highest to the lowest. (figures are taken from Bollywood Hungama)
