Bollywood Films Which Made it to the US Box Office Top 10!

The population of Indo-Americans is increasing by leaps and bounds in the United States. Reportedly, they represent one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the country. A census data shows a 69.4% increase in their numbers in the United States between 2000 and 2010. This growth is not limited to just the US. The similar growth has been recorded in Canada also. With growing Indo-American population, Indian filmmakers are releasing their films in the country in large numbers. Some of these films, at times, find great audience there and challenge even Hollywood biggies at the box office. Here we bring for you a listicle on some Bollywood Films which made in to the US Box Office Top 10.



Directed by well-known filmmaker, Ayan Mukerji, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ (2013) is one of the biggest hits of actor Ranbir Kapoor’s career thus far. The film, which hit screens worldwide on 31st May 2013, went on to topple many box office records within days of its release. Also starring Deepika Padukone, Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin in important roles, the film opened its account in India with a humongous 198.1 million (US$3.1 million), becoming the fourth biggest opening of all time and highest for a non-holiday release. Not just in India, the film performed phenomenally well in the overseas markets also, especially the Unites States.

According to reports published in some popular media outlets, the Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starring movie reached top 10 box office grosser of the weekend list at the 8th position with $1.6 million. Whereas some other reports pegged the collection to be at $1,568,677 at the US box office, opening in at No. 9 position with an average of $9,743 from 161 theatres. ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ released in the US market alongside some highly publicized Hollywood biggies. The film had to compete with movies like ‘Fast and Furious 6’, ‘Hangover Part 3’, ‘The Great Gatsby’ and ‘The Iron Man 3’ to name a few. But with its great appeal and the huge fan following of Ranbir and Deepika in the US market, the film gave a tough competition to all the big Hollywood biggies and emerged victorious. Interestingly, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’s US box office record was broken the very same year by another film of its female lead, Deepika Padukone, ‘Chennai Express’ which had Deepika paired opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The film had released three months later after the release of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’.

TRIVIA: ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ was a comeback movie for Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone since they used to date before and hadn’t done a movie together after their breakup.
