Christmas is just round the corner and all the film buffs are gearing up for the release of Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero. But before this film comes out, let’s have a look at the most successful Christmas releases in the last decade:-
1. Welcome (2007)
This Anees Bazmee comedy was the biggest hit of 2007, and made the audiences laugh uncontrollably and hysterically. It still continues to be seen whenever it’s on TV!
2. Ghajini (2008)
Aamir Khan’s action-packed entertainer became the first Indian film to cross the 100-crore mark at the box-office, which was truly historic. It also started a trend of remaking South Indian potboilers.
3. 3 idiots (2009)
Christmas became synonymous with Aamir when he brought his third consecutive festive release with Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 idiots. This started the 200-crore club and it took four years for Bollywood to break the record of this historic blockbuster!
4. Don 2 (2011)
SRK returned as Don with this sequel to the 2006 hit, Don! Earning over 107 crores at the ticket windows, it still remains one of Khan’s highest grossers in India and international markets. And if all goes well, he may return with Don 3 in 2020.
5. Dabangg 2 (2012)
Since it was a sequel to the 2010 hit, Dabangg, and Salman Khan was returning as Chulbul Pandey, fans were massively excited. And this bonanza smashed quite a few box-office records and became one of the actor’s biggest hits!
Special Mentions: Taare Zameen Par, Dhoom 3, PK, Bajirao Mastani and Dangal.
