From Rohit Shetty to SS Rajamouli - meet the directors, who delivered the maximum Rs 100-crore films at the box office


For a decade now, we have seen that the success of any film is measured by its box office numbers and it gets the certificate of a bonafide hit when it enters the elite club of Rs 100 crore. But nowadays, it defers due to the high-budgets and costs of the films. While many of us go to watch films in theatres for popular actors and actresses, we can’t deny the fact that many of the cine-goers now watch films because of the directors they love too. Honestly, they are the people who are responsible for delivering strong, entertaining and relevant content to us through cinema.


So, here we list the top 5 directors who strike a chord with the audience with their amazing content and make their films winners at the box office.


Rohit Shetty – 8



Chennai Express – Rs 226.70 crore
Golmaal Again – Rs 208 crore
Simmba – Rs 196.80* crore
Dilwale – Rs 148 crore
Singham Returns – Rs 132 crore
Golmaal 3 – Rs 106 crore
Bol Bachchan – Rs 103 crore
Singham – Rs 100 crore


He is the only filmmaker who has given 8 Rs 100-crore films and that too in consecutive order. Known for making family entertainers, Rohit Shetty exactly knows what the audience wants and delivers that kind of content. And we can see the response of viewers through the whopping box office collections.


Rajkumar Hirani – 3



Sanju – Rs 342 crore
PK – Rs 340 crore
3 Idiots – Rs 202 crore


One of the finest filmmakers of the country, Rajkumar Hirani makes one film in 3 to 4 years and when he makes it, he makes sure that it turns out to be a blockbuster. With subtle emotional moments and social messages, Hirani’s film touches the heart of a 12-year-old boy as well as a 70-year old person and that’s the speciality of his ventures.


Kabir Khan – 3



Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Rs 320.34 crore
Ek Tha Tiger – Rs 198 crore
Tubelight – Rs 120 crore


Documentary filmmaker, Kabir Khan, known for making intense movies like Kabul Express and New York entered the arena of commercial entertainers with the best man in the business Salman Khan and we say the rest is history.


Sanjay Leela Bhansali – 3



Padmaavat – Rs 302 crore
Bajirao Mastani – Rs 188 crore
Goliyon Ki Rasleela: RamLeela – Rs 115 crore


The passionate filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has always charmed us with his larger-than-life films like Devdas and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam but his last three films didn’t only impress the critics but also shattered many box office records and the common factor in that films is the hit pair of Ranveer and Deepika.


SS Rajamouli – 2



Baahubali: The Conclusion – Rs 511 crore
Baahubali: The Beginning – Rs 120 crore


The Telugu filmmaker, who made the biggest Indian motion picture Baahubali enters the list and the collections of the two parts (Hindi) are fair enough to justify that.
