For the Hindi film industry, 2012 has by far been the best year, with eight films exceeding Rs 100 crore in net collections on the domestic box-office.
This could be seen as a remarkable feat, especially because only 17 films have managed to net more than Rs 100 crore in the history of Bollywood. Five movies had made it to the club in 2012 and two the year before that.
The big eight this year - Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Son of Sardar, Ek Tha Tiger, Rowdy Rathore, Barfi, Bol Bachchan, Housefull 2 and Agneepath - have already crossed the Rs 100-crore mark, while trade experts believe Salman Khan's upcoming Dabangg 2, too, will make it to the club.
