Bollywood is the second largest movie production center next to the Hollywood. The first ever film of Bollywood was “Raja Harishchandra”, a black and white and silent movie which was launched holding the hands of Dadasaheb Phalke in 1913. With the advent of time, the number of movies, produced by Bollywood has been increased by multiple times.
The industry kissed the commercial success from 60’s era. The collection of revenue has been bloated in manifold ways. “Sholay” (1975) was able to earn thrice the amount, collected by “Mughal-E-Azam” (1960). Again the record of “Sholay” has been quadrupled by “Hum Apke Hai Kaun” (1994). It was the first movie to cross the revenue of 1 billion INR (15 million $). Now the records are being created and broken very frequently. The competitions become tough while the success of a film is determined by gathered revenue rather than box office longevity.
