Most watched Bollywood movies

Most Watched Bollywood Movies In Theatres: HAHK, DDLJ, Raja Hindustani and Border are the most watched Bollywood movies in theatres.

These days the success of Bollywood movies is defined by the collection in crores it makes at the box office. However, this hasn’t been the case always. From 1970’s to 1990’s, the success of the Bollywood movie was judged by the numbers of weeks it runs in theatres. With the evolution of cinema over the years, success parameters have changed.

However, there is one parameter which we think truly defines the success of the old and new movies. It is the footfalls. Footfalls is the numbers of tickets sold across all theatres of the country. In a way, it defines the number of people/times the movie has been watched. Let’s have a look at the list of the most watched Bollywood movies in theatres based on footfalls.
