The 100 Crore Club of Hindi Films


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 06, 2012           01.40 A.M.

All the Acting Trainers of Mumbai want successful students . Its natural . Some Acting Trainers of India even make false claims about their student actors to show the world that they are very successful . Its deceit . Almost all Bollywood Acting Trainers have lists of their students , who are now very much successful in Hindi film industry . Some are genuine , some are fake .

In fact all the Film Institutes of Mumbai dish out list of their students , whose films are there in the 100 Crore Club . In olden days Silver Jubilee , Golden Jubilee and Diamond Jubilee used to be the hallmark of a successful films . But now 100 Crore earning films are considered successful .

Till date only 15 films have earned 100 Crore or more . I am reproducing the list of films of all the 15 films of 100 Crore Club from Wikipedia .

The Bollywood 100 Crore Club
Year Film No. of Days Net Gross
2008 Ghajini 18 INR115 crore (US$21.74 million)
2009 3 Idiots 9 INR202 crore (US$38.18 million)
2010 Dabangg 10 INR140 crore (US$26.46 million)
2010 Golmaal 3 17 INR108 crore (US$20.41 million)
2011 Ready 14 INR121 crore (US$22.87 million)
2011 Singham 37 INR100 crore (US$18.9 million)
2011 Bodyguard 7 INR141 crore (US$26.65 million)
2011 Ra.One 11 INR115 crore (US$21.74 million)
2011 Don 2 16 INR115 crore (US$21.74 million)
2012 Agneepath 11 INR120 crore (US$22.68 million)
2012 Housefull 2 17 INR112 crore (US$21.17 million)
2012 Rowdy Rathore 10 INR131.56 crore (US$24.86 million)
2012 Bol Bachchan 20 INR106 crore (US$20.03 million)
2012 Ek Tha Tiger 6 INR186 crore (US$35.15 million)
2012 Barfi! 19 INR100 crore (US$18.9 million)

Out of these 15 films , there are 10 films which have my students are protagonists [ male and female both ] and antagonists . When I go through the list , I feel satisfied that as an Acting Trainer , I have 18 students of mine whose films are there in the 100 Crore Club . I am not blowing my own trumpet but no Bollywood Acting Trainer has such a long list .

I am giving the name of the artistes , who are my students  :

1 – KAREENA KAPOOR  : “3 Idiots”, “Golmaal 3”, “Bodyguard”, “Ra.One”

2 – PRIYANKA CHOPRA : “Don 2” , “Agneepath” & “Barfi”

3 – ARBAAZ KHAN : ” Dabangg “

4 – SONU SOOD : ” Dabangg “

5 – HAZEL KEECH : ” Bodyguard “

6 – ARJUN RAMPAL : ” Ra.One “

7 – KUNAL KAPOOR : ” Don 2 “

8 – HRITIK ROSHAN : ” Agneepath “

9 – SAJID KHAN : ” Housefull 2 ” [ As Director ]

10 – JACQUELINE FERNANDEZ : ” Housefull 2 “

11 – SHAZAHN PADAMSEE : ” Housefull 2 “

12 – KATRINA KAIF : ” Ek Tha Tiger “

13 – RANBIR KAPOOR : ” Barfi “

Out of these 13 students , Kareena Kapoor tops the list with 4 films . She is followed by Priyanka Chopra with 3 films . Rest 11 have 1 film each in their kitty. Out of these 13 students , 12 are actors and 1 Sajid Khan is the director of ” Housefull 2 ” .

Kareena Kapoor was the first to enter in this illustrious club and Ranbir Kapoor is the latest . Both are my student and they both belong to Kapoor family , the first family of Hindi Film industry .

As an Acting Trainer of Bollywood , who runs a Famous Acting Class in Mumbai , known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , it is a very satisfying journey indeed .

Any Acting Trainer of India can do anything to have such a list .

Vidur’s Film Diary – July 2010


Its July and half the year is gone. First half of the year ended and there is not a very heartening news for the industry.. Industry suffered losses to the tune of 300 crores. ” RAAVAN “,  “KITES “, ” VEER “, ” PRINCE “, ” TEEN PETTI ” and ” RANN “ were some of the notable flops. From January to june 81 Hindi films were released.Out of these, only 10 films managed to make some profit. First quarter ie January to march saw only two hits : ” PAA ” and ” LOVE SEX AUR DHOKHA “. Second quarter saw only three films hitting the bulls eyes. They were : ” HOUSEFULL “, ” BADMAASH COMPANY “ and ” RAAJNEETI “. Rest 5, somehow barely recovered the cost.

As for as July releases are concerned, I am quoting few relevant tweets of eminent trade analyst Mr. Taran Adarsh :

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/aQZHc9 B.O. update: Youth luves ‘Luv Storys’, film starts with a bang

‘I Hate Luv Storys’ is rock-solid on Saturday. Fri. Rs. 7 cr. nett & Sat. Rs. 7.5 cr. nett. Sunday should be better than Fri. & Sat.
taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/8YMX4o Overseas B.O.: ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ gets Thumbs Up in U.S.A., U.K., Australia, Gulf, Pakistan

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/ca3a2j Monday update: ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ is rock-steady, despite Bharat Bandh

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/8YMX4o Overseas B.O.: ‘Milenge Milenge’, ‘Red Alert’ are dull

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/aQZHc9 B.O. Update: ‘Inception’ fetches better & bigger start than Bollywood releases

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/WyXIx Midweek B.O.: ‘Inception’ leads, ‘Tere Bin Laden’ & ‘Udaan’ pick up, ‘Lamhaa’ fails

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/bbkhW4 Week 1 nett figures: ‘Inception’ 9.6 cr, ‘Lamhaa’ 8.5 cr, ‘Tere Bin Laden’ 5.61 cr, ‘Udaan’ 2.5 cr

taran_adarsh

‘Lamhaa’ is rejected, will entail losses; ‘TBL’ is a success, returns from theatrical and non-theatrical avenues should ensure profits.

taran_adarsh

‘Udaan’ total cost 5 cr. UTV will recover 6.25 cr. Profit of 1.25 cr. Profit includes 3.5 cr revenue from Colors for Satellite rights.

taran_adarsh

‘Tere Bin Laden’ Update: Satellite, Home Video and Music rights have fetched Rs. 4.25 crores.

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/8YMX4o ‘Khatta Meetha’ is Akshay Kumar’s lowest opener in U.K., U.S.A.

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/cctlka Domestic B.O.: Not Khatta, not Meetha, just Pheeka

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/bbkhW4 Top 5: ‘Khatta Meetha’ Week 1 Rs. 32 cr. nett, slided heavily on weekdays

taran_adarsh

http://bit.ly/aQZHc9 B.O. Update: ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ starts slow, picks up, reports terrific

taran_adarsh

As per early tracking [rough estimates], Day 1 of ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ is between Rs. 7.5 cr. and Rs. 8 cr. nett. Very good!

Obituary :
===============

MANOHARI SINGH :

Hindi Film’s most sought after saxophone player, Manohari da died on July 13, 2010 following a cardiac arrest. He was chief assistant of S. D. Burman and R. D. Burman. This legendary saxophone player adorned many hindi film songs such as my all time favourites – Dil Jo Na Keh Saka from ‘ BHEEGI RAAT ” and evergreen Gata Rahe Mera Dil from ” GUIDE “. He was awarded Radio Mirchi’s Musical Award in 2009.

To show his popularity and respect he commands, I am pasting here many tweets of eminent people :

mangeshkarlata

a very good saxophone player,great arranger,and a fabulous human being,,manohari da passed away..my heartfelt condolences to his family.

SrBachchan

@mangeshkarlata Oh gosh lata ji .. very sad news. I was just some months ago at a function where he played .. condolences and prayers

SATISH BHATNAGAR :

An eminent screenplay and dialogue writer, Satish Bhatnagar died on July 07, 2010. He used to write screenplay for Late B. R. Chopra, along with Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza. Last film which he wrote for him was BAGHBAN. For others, he wrote very successful films such as ” Maryada “, ” Seeta Aur Geeta “, ” Himalay Se Ooncha “, ” Satte Pe Satta “, and Prakash Mehra”s ”  Hera Pheri “.
It is extremely sad that he died in penury and did not have money to pay his hospital bills. He could survive with The Film Writer’s Association’s financial aid.

RAVI BASWANI :

Acclaimed comrdian Ravi Baswani died in Haldwani, Uttarakhand on July 27th, where he had gone to scout locations for his directorial venture. An extremely talented actor, Ravi Baswani shall always be remembered for films like ” Chashme Badoor “ and ” Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron “. Chashme Badoor ( 1981) , was directed by Sai Paranjpe was his first film. Then he acted in his most successful film ” Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron ” ( 1983 ) directed by Kundan Shah. He was recently seen in ” Bunty Aur Babli ” ( 2005) , and ” Yun Hota To Kya Hota ” ( 2006 ). The last film, Naseeruddin Shah’s first directorial venture, is now his last film.

Baswani also acted on television and was very popular in Doordarshan’s 1980s hit serial  ” Idhar Udhar ” .

Incidently for his cult film Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron , he won Filmfare Best Comedian Award. He was dean of acting in Film & Television Institute of India also, where he leant acting years ago.
