Highest Grossing Indian (Bollywood/Hindi) Films of 2023 with Verdict


The year 2023 presented a mixed bag of successes and failures in the film industry. Notably, four films surpassed the 500 crore net barrier, including the top-grossing film, "Jawan," which led by a significant margin. "Animal," "Pathaan," and "Gadar 2" also achieved the feat, contributing to a successful year.

However, amidst the triumphs, there were notable flops and disasters at the box office. "12th Fail" and "Zara Hatke Zara Bachke" emerged as the biggest surprise hits of the year, defying expectations.

Shah Rukh Khan emerged as the undisputed star of the year, dominating like never before. With two colossal blockbusters (All Time Blockbusters) to his credit, his influence extended even to the underperforming "Dunki," which is anticipated to surpass the 200 crore net business mark in India.

  1. Great article. Bollywood seems to be on a decline for a while now.
    Only a few become a Blockbuster or Hit, rest are Flops.

  2. ROCKY AUR RANI KI PREM KAHANI - Movie Budget 160cr and movie collected 153.60 Net India, still movie got HIT status but Dunki collected 200cr India Net with 120cr Budget is Average/Above Average, how?
    How biased you are addatoday.....?
