War is the top single screen grosser with almost 75 crore nett while Saaho (Hindi) has the highest ratio of single screen business against the multiplex business and both have one thing in common and that is action. The big difference being that War had a star cast while Saaho (Hindi) was a film from the South and worked for the action only. .
The single screen has been coming down for years as they slowly shut down while others get converted into twin screens. But the single screens business is still a sign of stardom for the actors involved and also the reach of the film where the higher the business means the film has reached a larger audience. There are four films in the history of Hindi cinema that have crossed the 100 crore nett mark in single screens and they are Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan, Bahubali - The Conclusion and Tiger Zinda Hai. Bahubali - The Conclusion is among the greatest BLOCKBUSTERS ever and the other three are Salman Khan starrers and its this pull which is makes him the top star at this time.
