It was about the money. But what starts with money In Bollywood ends up on some other note say the chair of the numero uno! What else.
Starting off with the leading ladies, the race has turned from a duel to a multi-ended ring with each of the known names vying for a chunk of the magic figure.
Till last year, the only competition for a place at the top for Katrina Kaif was Kareena Kapoor. With both actresses delivering hits on a regular basis, the only differentiating factor between Kat and Bebo was the number of box office centuries that latter had scored. However with Asin boasting of three centuries and Vidya Balan too arriving with five hits in a row, it is about time that Katrina gets roaring again.
“Katrina has been doing quite well over the years but one thing she would be really longing for is a 100 crore grosser,” comments a
trade expert, “After all, that’s the barometer for any successful popular actress today.”
Coming to the men, the fight seems to be a bit more sober and underwhelming. However, the way the content has been in the 100 crore grossers, not much about the quality can be said, but yes while we talk of star power, the names are easy to list. He is surely vying another biggie in the form of Talaash while Dhoom 3 is quite at distant.
The reliable Khan Aamir has an enviable list of 2 huge grossers in Ghajini and 3 Idiots. However, of we talk of the tally, it is lead by Salman with 3 centurions in Dabangg, Ready and Bodyguard. With Ek Tha Tiger round the corner, the buzz is already there and with Dabangg 2 at Christmas, the festivities won’t find time to take a break at the Khan’s it seems!
Well how could the King be left behind. He is closely following with his lesser celebrated hits in the 100 crore bracket Ra.One and Don 2. Well, he is surely on the prowl with the upcoming Yash Chopra venture at Diwali. So more crackers for our junta!
The least expected entrant to the club is Ajay Devgn, who finally tasted solo success after a long time with his masala action in Singham. Now again, Rohit and Ajay are around the corner with Bol Bachan. Let’s see if they can hit the mark yet again.
How do we forget the youngest entrant to the club? Rowdy going Housefull all over is the way to go for Akki Kumar as two back to back centuries have brought the Khiladi in the scheme of things yet again. Now, with some more action to follow in the coming days with Joker and Khiladi 786, expect anything but routine stuff as the case has been recently.
That is all for the current standings in the 100 crore grossers club. Stay tuned for more updates!
