Bollywood does not face any dearth of superstars starting from 70’s heroes such as Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Raj Kapoor, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan Aamir Khan, Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Mithun Chakraborty, Rajendra Kumar, Manoj Kumar, Hrithik Roshan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn. However, as the year 2020 is coming to an end, netizens have been sitting on the edge of their seats to find the biggest Bollywood superstar of 21st century.
According to the Box Office analysis, the topmost Bollywood actor to achieve the highest grossers in their filming career is none other than Salman Khan. In his career of 30 years, he has been able to make 10 grossers, which, in relation to his comrades, is the highest bidding. In addition to this, he has the highest and the most loyal social media following who admire and love his films. His 10 grossers are Maine Pyar Kiya, Saajan, Hum Aapke Hai Koun, Hum Saath Saath Hai, No Entry, Dabangg, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Tiger Zinda Hai.
Salman Khan is then followed by the pioneer of Bollywood cinema, Dilip Kumar. In his career which does not cover more than 65 films, he has been able to gain 9 highest grossing films which include, Jugnu, Shaheed, Aan, Madhumati, Mughal-E-Azam, Ganga Jamuna, Kranti, Vidhata and Karma. He has been able to sustain this record up until 2017 until the arrival of Salman Khan.
Dilip Kumar is then followed by the believer of quality cinema, Aamir Khan, who in the span of 32 years of filming career, is able to bag 7 highest grossing films of the year. These include Dil, Raja Hindustani, Ghajini, 3 Idiots, PK, Dhoom 3 and Dangal. With him signing new films, there is a high probability that he can give a tough competition, especially with his new film Laal Singh Chaddha which is to be released in 2021.
The all-time biggest megastar of the Bollywood industry, Amitabh Bachchan has been, surprisingly, placed at the 4th position, with only 6 highest grossing films. They include Roti Kapda Aur Makaan, Sholay, Amar Akbar Anthony, Muqqadar Ka Sikander, Suhaag and Coolie. Be that as it may, Amitabh Bachchan has the biggest fan following occupied by all age groups, which is in for the long haul.
The fifth rank has been shared by three unforgettable and talented superstars of Bollywood: Shah Rukh Khan, Raj Kapoor and Dharmendra. All of them bag five highest grossing films of the year. Dharmendra’s top grosser of the year include Pathhar Ke Phool, Ankhen, Seeta Aur Geeta, Sholay and Hukumat.

Moreover, Raj Kapoor’s highest grossers as an actor include Barsaat, Awaara, Shree 420, Anari and Sangam. As a director, he has bagged two highest grossing films such as Bobby and Ram Teri Ganga Maili.
Out of the lot, Hrithik Roshan can be considered to be one of the most successful actors in the Bolywood industry, who received name and fame within just 20 years of the career. He has been able to bag 4 highest grossing films of the year. His four highest grossers of the year include Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai, Koi Mil Gaya, Dhoom 2 and War.
