2017 has been a roller-coaster like year for Bollywood. When we got a mammoth hit like Baahubali 2 we also had few downers with event films in Tubelight, Jab Harry Met Sejal & Jagga Jasoos. Let’s see what movies had the privilege of entering the 100 crore club this year. Akshay Kumar and Varun Dhawan were the top runners in the list.
Please note, we’ve taken just the movies which have earned more than 100 crore and less than 200 crore.
The year started with a mega clash of Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil. Surely, both ate into each other’s business but both did well for themselves.
Though Raees was the front-runner in this race but Kaabil surprised everyone by its collections.
Where Raees collected 137.51 crores, Kaabil too managed to earn 126.85 crores at the box office. Proving to be a successful clash these both were first two entrants of
the 100 crore club in 2017.
Releasing a couple of weeks later this clash, Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 was widely accepted by the audience. Reprising the role of Arshad Warsi in the sequel, Akshay was praised and more than that the supporting cast of this film garnered the love. It collected 117 crores at the box office.
Sequel to a successful Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Varun Dhawan & Alia Bhatt were back with another version of the same template. Badrinath Ki Dulhania‘s pre-release
buzz was super high because of its loved trailer and songs. The move went on to clock 116.60 crores during its lifetime.
