While the lifetime run of Super 30 finished with a total of Rs 146.94 crore, the action film War has collected a sum of Rs 305.95 crore by now. The compounded gathering of the two movies is now standing at a whopping Rs 452.89 crore and it surely makes the Greek God the top actor of the year.

Tiger Shroff, Hrithik’s co-actor in the War film, stands the second rank.  Apart from the action thriller helmed by Siddharth Anand, Tiger also played the lead in the earlier released film Student of the Year 2.

On another hand, actor Akshay Kumar casually owns the 3rd spot with Rs 357.39 crore in total owing to the majestic outcome of Mission Mangal and Kesari. The two films have earned Rs 202.98 crore and Rs 154.41 crore respectively.

Ajay Devgn, the actor who had two successes within this year is the number 5 of the list. With Total Dhamaal that earned Rs 154.23 crore and De De Pyaar De that garnered Rs 257.87 crore, the actor managed to see his two hits gain Rs 257.87 crore on the whole.


In spite of the admirable box-office result of Bharat (which accounts for Rs 211.07 crore), actor Salman Khan hasn’t managed to make it into Top 5. However, with the approaching release of his next Dabangg 3 on the 20th of December this year, the star may evolve from missing to getting the top place of the list.

Supposed that War gains Rs 10 crore more before the cinema work rests, the tally of Hrithik will rise to approximately Rs 460 crore. To take over Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan will have to make sure Dabangg 3 makes at least Rs 250 crore. Will he be able to do it?


With his massive stardom as well as the renown of Dabangg series, it is possible that the figure will be achieved. For the record, the 2012 installment Dabangg 2 had collected Rs 155 crore before.
