Top 10 Highest Grossing Worldwide Bollywood Movies

The Hindi “Bollywood” film industry is the largest film production center in the world. The first feature film (black and white silent) produced in India was “Raja Harishchandra” produced by Dadasaheb Phalke in 1913. As time passed, the industry expanded, and the number of films produced.

Since the 1960s, the industry has achieved great commercial success with greater regularity and the income earned has multiplied; The 1975 film “Sholay” earned triple what the previous Mughal-e-Azam, who held the 1960s record, earned, while Hum Aapke Hain Koun ..! (1994) quadrupled Sholay’s record. After the “dark phase” of the 1980s, the business increased enormously, as can be seen in the huge success of such films as Hum Aapke Hain Koun ..!, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge and Gadar: Ek Prem Katha.

Initially, a movie’s success was determined by longevity at the box office rather than revenue. However, due to increasing competition from television and the threat of piracy, and later the advent of alternative media, the longevity of movies dropped dramatically and revenue became the focus of success.
