Salman Khan, the first Bollywood actor to mark Rs 500 in a single year!

 

With Prem Ratan Dhan Payo striking gold at the box office and Bajrangi Bhaijaan shattering many records earlier in the year, Salman Khan has yet again proved he is one of the most productive and profitable stars in Bollywood.

Salman’s PRDP is still holding a strong position at the box office and has enough steam to continue its solo run this week too.

Though the Rs 500 crore club entry is a first for Salman Khan, his other movies too have been topping the box office charts regularly from 2012.His ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Dabangg 2’ had grossed approximately Rs 353 crore at the India box office, whereas in 2014, his film ‘Jai Ho’ and ‘Kick’ had a combined collection of approximately Rs 346 crore.

Rs 500 crore mark is a great achievement in the actors’ fraternity, but still there is a long way to go for the males in the industry to catch up with the actresses, at least one in particular, Deepika Padukone! Deepika Padukone had grossed Rs 632.48 crore in box office collections from her 4 releases namely, Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela in the year 2013.

Chances are that Salman’s record might be obliterated as Aamir Khan is working on at least one release every year. Also, Shahrukh Khan is gearing up with two releases next year, and that too may pose a big challenge to Salman Khan for the Rs 500 cr crown. Let’s see who grabs this title of Rs. 500 crore next year!
