Animal to Cross Rare Box Office Milestone

Animal has achieved a significant box office benchmark. The plot of the latest Bollywood film, which stars Anil Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, centers on a man who becomes driven to seek revenge after his father is the target of a murderous plot that strains relations between them. Despite the criticism surrounding it—it has been accused of perpetuating misogyny and toxic masculinity—the film has gone on to become a huge hit.

According to Collider, the Animal box office has crossed the significant $100 million (₹831.98 crore) mark globally, with the Indian market accounting for $60 million (₹499.2 crore) of the total. With Jawan and Pathaan, this makes it the third Indian film of 2023 to surpass that standard. Given that there have only been nine Indian films to make over $100 million at the box office, this is a noteworthy accomplishment.

Animal’s status as the third $100 million Indian film of 2023 was far from assured. Shah Rukh Khan starred in the last two films, Jawan and Pathaan, and he is a global celebrity with a far stronger track record in sales than Ranbir Kapoor. See how those two films stack up against Animal’s box office takeaways and overall position on the list of the highest-grossing Indian films ever made below.

The previous record-holders, with two titles apiece, were 2022 with the Oscar-winning Tollywood movie RRR (No. 3) and KGF: Chapter 2 (No. 4), and 2017 with Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (No. 2) and Secret Superstar (No. 8).

Whether 2024 can equal or surpass the combined success of these three films is yet to be seen. As of right now, no films starring Shah Rukh Khan, Sandeep Reddy Vanga, or Ranbir Kapoor have an official release date for the upcoming year. Other upcoming Bollywood films, however, include Jigra, starring Alia Bhatt after Heart of Stone, and Sitaare Zameen Par, starring Aamir Khan, the star of the highest-grossing Indian film Dangal. These two films, along with others, have the potential to do well abroad.
