Crossing the 100 crore mark three times in a row is a hallmark of consistency, something that only the Top 5 stars in the industry have achieved so far in their careers.
Salman Khan in on an incredible run with 10 consecutive 100 crore grossers, a record that doesn’t seem like it would end anytime soon. It could go on forever, unless he picks a wrong film or decides to a do a small off-beat film. He also holds the record for 3 consecutive 200 crore plus grossers, which could extend to 5 films by the end of this year. His films have never grossed less than 100 crore in the last 7 years.
Shah Rukh Khan takes the second spot, he’s been very consistent over the years but his 2016 release ‘Fan’ ended his 100-crore run at 6 films between 2011 – 2015.
Akshay Kumar is on a terrific run, he’s the only actor to deliver 3 consecutive 100 crore grossers in a single calendar year. If he remains consistent, he could surpass Shah Rukh by the end of 2017. He has 3 more releases this year – Toilet Ek Prem Katha, Robot 2.0 (only Hindi collections will be counted) and Padman.
Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan have delivered three 100 crore grossers consecutively. While ‘Secret Superstar’ won’t be considered an Aamir Khan film, he could extend his run for the longest possible time. He’s also the only actor to cross 250 crore mark, three times in a row and the 300 crore mark, two times in a row.
