Top 10 Highest Grossing Worldwide Bollywood Movies
The Hindi film industry “Bollywood” is the largest film production center in the world. The first feature film (silent black and white) made in India was the “Raja Harishchandra” produced by Dadasaheb Phalke in 1913. Over time, the industry expanded and the number of films produced.
Since the 1960s, the sector has achieved great commercial success more regularly and the revenue generated has multiplied; The 1975 movie “Sholay” earned three times what previous record holder Mughal-e-Azam of the 1960s earned, while Hum Aapke Hain Koun ..! (1994) more than quadrupled Sholay’s record. After the “dark phase” of the 1980s, business increased tremendously, as seen in the blockbuster films such as Hum Aapke Hain Koun …!, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge and Gadar: Ek Prem Katha.
Initially, the success of a movie was determined by box office longevity rather than revenue. However, due to increased competition from television and the threat of piracy, and later with the advent of alternative media, the longevity of movies has dramatically decreased and revenue has become the focus of success.
