John Abraham should definitely be a happy man today. After going through a lot of trouble to release his ambitious film, Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran, his film has been declared a success, both critically and commercially.

Well, coming to John’s films, if there have been failures, there have been hugs successes as well, so let’s have a look at his highest grossing films of all time:-
1. Housefull 2 (2012) – 112 crores
Despite heavy criticism, particularly John Abraham’s comic timing, this Sajid Khan comedy still remains his highest grosser till date.
2. Race 2 (2013) – 96 crores
This film may not have achieved the cult of the first Race, but thanks to its style and scale and some high-octane action, Race 2 raked in over 96 crores at the ticket windows and became John’s second biggest hit ever.
3. Welcome Back (2015) – 95 crores
The film was nowhere close to as funny as the first Welcome, but thanks to Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor’s crazy chemistry and the popularity of the first film, Welcome Back became John Abraham’s third highest grossing film of all time.
4. Dishoom (2016) – 68 crores
A rough and tough cop, stuck with a bumbling fool (also a cop, though) made Dishoom an immensely entertaining watch and the film made over 68 crores at the box office.
5. Shootout At Wadala (2013) – 53 crores
Considered one of John Abraham’s best, Shootout At Wadala, thanks to its mammoth star cast and controversial subject, raked in 53 crores and became one of the memorable films of John’s career.
HONORABLE MENTIONS- Dhoom, Garam Masala, Dostana and Force.
