Mumbai, December 6 - Ajay Devgn starrer Drishyam 2
has emerged a blockbuster at the box office thanks to the outstanding trending of the film. The film is set to cross the 200cr mark at the box office and it is expected to put 225cr or more total in its final lifetime run. Drishyam 2 has emerged as the 5th blockbuster of Ajay Devgn's career though footfalls wise it will be his lowest. "Phool Aur Kaante" was the first blockbuster of Ajay Devgn's career which was his debut film in 1991. Later on, "Golmaal 3" (2010), "Golmaal Again" (2017), and "Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior" (2020) emerged as his other blockbusters.
If we talk about 90s generation superstars then Salman Khan leads the most number of blockbuster count and that too by around 50% margin. In total, Salman Khan has delivered 15 Blockbusters at the box office and 9 of them came in the last decade only. Shah Rukh Khan with 10 Blockbusters occupies the second position on the list. Both Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan are the only stars who have crossed a double-digit number of blockbusters from 90s generation stars. Aamir Khan has delivered 9 Blockbusters at the box office while Akshay Kumar delivered 2 Blockbusters till now.
If we go back further and include the stars from the golden period of the Hindi film industry then most of the 90s stars won't find a place in the list of most blockbusters. The most celebrated screen icon Amitabh Bachchan had around 15 blockbusters to his credit while the he-man of Bollywood Dharmendra had 11 Blockbusters. The legendary Dilip Kumar who ruled the silver screens from the late 1940s to the early 1960s had delivered close to 13 Blockbusters at the box office.
Then there were some phenomenal stars as well who ruled the industry and was number one star for a brief period like Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Rajendra Kumar, Jeetendra, and Sunny Deol who also delivered numerous blockbusters at the box office but cut it short Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, and Dilip Kumar are the three stars who are well above everyone in terms of blockbuster count.
