Bollywood's BIGGEST HITS 2013

2013 marked the completion of 100 years of Bollywood. It saw many big-budget films in Bollywood releasing, as well as a number of sequels. Some of these sequels were: Dhoom 3, Krrish 3, Murder 3, Race 2, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai 2, Aashiqui 2, Shootout at Wadala,Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, Grand Masti, Satya 2 and Yamla Pagla Deewana 2
so here is the list of  Bollywood's BIGGEST HITS  of 2013

1) Dhoom 3

Box office collections: Rs 250 crore (Still running, and expected to cross 280 crore+) 
Dhoom 3 was always expected to score big but the ease with which it raced ahead of expected figures left many a naysayer speechless.

The film went on to create numerous records -- best first day collections, first weekend and first week with fastest Rs 100-crore, Rs 150-crore and Rs 200-crore collections.

Aamir Khan has since been crowned the first entrant of Rs 250-crore club.

2) Chennai Express

 Box office collections: Rs 227 crore

It's not to say that Deepika did not get her own Rs 200 crore movie.
She did, with Chennai Express, and she was fabulous in it.
There may have been a hint of controversy around its eventual box office score, but no one contested the fact that Shah Rukh Khan had indeed enter the Rs 200 crore club with this Rohit Shetty film.
3) Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani  

Box office collections: Rs 189 crore

Deepika Padukone came close to scoring her first Rs 200-crore film with Ayan Mukerji's Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani early in the year.

Other than Ranbir Kapoor (the film's protagonist), music composer Pritam won accolades for his work in the film too.

The film scored a record for the highest collections ever on a non-holiday release (before Dhoom 3 eclipsed it) and continued to attract the audians.
4) Krrish 3

Box office collections: Rs 180 crore

Hrithik Roshan-starrer superhero hit Krrish 3was yet another big player of the year.

The film managed to break the myth that Diwali releases don't do too well.

However, while trade figures indicated that collections were in the Rs 170-180 crore range, the Roshans claimed that the film earned Rs 250 crore.

5) Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela 

Box office collection: Rs 120 crore

The year clearly belonged to Deepika Padukone as yet another one of her films --  Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela -- entered the Rs 100-crore club.

Ranveer Singh found a firm footing with the film as well.
Ram-Leela did well in the opening weekend with over Rs 50 crore coming in.

It sustained well for four weeks, and emerged as the highest grosser for Sanjay Leela Bhansali as a director.
6) Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

Box office collections: Rs 109 crore

No one expected this Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film to enter the Rs 100-crore club.

In fact, for a biopic, even Rs 50 crore business would have been considered an achievement.

However, the Farhan Akhtar-starrer defied all odds and went on to become one of the most love
7) Grand Masti

Box office collection: Rs 102 crore
This film could have very easily turned into a mega disaster.

But even though most critics termed it crude and vulgar, those very qualities proved to be a strong selling point.

8) Race 2

Box office collection: Rs 100 croreThe sequel factor worked big time for Race 2, which wasn't as terrific as its predecessor, some might argue.

But its action sequences, hot stars, exotic locations and, most importantly, chart-busting songs (Pritam again) meant that Abbas-Mustan could shrug away their earlier disappointment called Players.

The film struggled to touch the 100-crore mark but an excellent weekend made Race 2 the first 100-crore film of the year.
9) Aashiqui 2

Box office collection: Rs 78 crore
Aashiqui 2 was the biggest surprise of the year.

When the songs first came on air, inevitable comparisons were made with the first Aashiquimovie and many wondered if they would match the hit soundtrack of the original film.

The music worked, and how!
Mohit Suri's storytelling gave way to two upcoming stars --  Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor. 

10) Special 26

Box office collections: Rs 67 crore
Special 26 was quite a departure from the hardcore commercial movies that Akshay Kumar has been doing lately and the audience gave it their whole-hearted approval.

In a relatively realistic outing which boasted of some tongue-in-cheek humour, Special 26 scored well at the box office.

The film reinstated the fact that Akshay can be versatile when he chooses to be.
