Gone are the days when we used to look forward to a movie entering the Rs 100 cr club and actors giving one film that enters the club. After shattering all box office records, Salman Khan has proved it yet again that there is no stopping him. (Read: Ranbir Kapoor says he didn’t go to Salman Khan’s ‘Bigg Boss 9’ for personal reasons)

And if the numbers of both Bajranig Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo are added, they go even beyond Rs. 500 cr. An actor making such good numbers at box office after two superhit films in one year is a rare case.
