Five weeks in, the Hindi version of Pushpa: The Rise has made Rs 91 crore at the box office. It is still playing in select theatres across the country. And while it stays on to be the highest grossing film on a day by day basis this month, there’s still a question mark over whether it will gain entry into the 100 Crore Club.

With no new films releasing in January, and ’83 as well as Spider-Man: No Way Home nearing the end of their run, the film is still bringing in a trickle of audiences to single-screen theatres in select mass centres of the country.

Whether the Allu Arjun-starrer makes the 100 Crore Club or misses it by a sliver, he won’t be the first to be in this nail-biting situation. Ajay Devgn, John Abraham and Kartik Aaryan have all been here.

How exactly? Well, if one looks at the films which have either managed to scrape through (Rs 100-105 crore range), or missed the club by a small margin (Rs 95-99 crore range), then Ajay Devgn and Kartik Aaryan have the maximum count of such films.

Entry into the 100 Crore Club has always been a prestigious outing for Bollywood superstars. Ajay Devgn has 11 such films to his name, including two double centuries [Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior (Rs 280 crore) and Golmaal Again (Rs 205.70 crore)]. He managed to just about get over the line with Singham (Rs 100.3 crore) and Shivaay (Rs 100.3 crore). His Bol Bachchan (Rs 103 crore), Raid (Rs 103.07 crore) and De De Pyaar De (Rs 103.5 crore) were all in the same range, while Diwali release Son of Sardaar (Rs 105 crore) did a little better despite competition from Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Other actors to have experienced this are Saif Ali Khan and John Abraham with Race 2 (Rs 100.45 crore), Ranveer Singh with ’83 (Rs 102 crore; still running), Arjun Kapoor with 2 States (Rs 102 crore), Ritesh Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani with Grand Masti (Rs 102 crore), Hrithik Roshan with Kaabil (Rs 103.84 crore) and Akshay Kumar with Gold (Rs 105 crore).

While these films ended up being on the right side of the Rs 100 crore milestone, there are others that didn’t make it across. John Abraham and Kartik Aaryan, for example, have both featured in some well-made films which deserved to score a comfortable century but external factors resulted in the milestone being missed by a whisker.

Batla House fought it out till the end before closing at Rs 99.5 crore. One of the best films starring John Abraham, it had massive competition from 200 Crore Club entrant Mission Mangal. The actor’s Welcome Back [Rs 97 crore] too came close.

Similarly, Kartik Aaryan entertained the audiences with two family flicks Pati Patni aur Woh [Rs 97 crore] and Luka Chuppi [Rs 95 crore]. Both films were well appreciated and were also ideal follow-up to his 100 Crore Club entrant Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. However, the arrival of Mardaani 2, Dabangg 3 and Good Newwz in the three weeks that followed led to Pati Patni aur Woh missing the milestone by Rs 3 crore. Ditto for Luka Chuppi when competition in the form of Badla and Kesari in subsequent weeks meant that box office collections stopped Rs 5 crore short of mark.

As for the other actors, Tiger Shroff was well on course to score another big one with Baaghi 3 but the pandemic resulted in closing down of theatres – the film had been playing theatres for 11 days. Otherwise, standing at Rs 95 crore, it was on course to score a century. As for Baby, it is one of the most loved films of Akshay Kumar and while it has gained the status of a cult classic today, back then it had to end of its run at Rs 95.5 crore.

Now coming to Pushpa [Hindi], one waits to see where does it eventually find itself. While it is marching well towards the Rs 95-97 crore mark, it would be those last Rs 3-4 crore towards the Rs 100 crore mark that would be very closely observed. Will Allu Arjun have a smile on his face or face heartbreak? Well, it we’ll find out in a couple of weeks.

Singham – 100.3 crores

Shivaay – 100.3 crores

Race 2 – 100.45 crores

’83 – 102 crores (still running)

Raid – 103.07 crores

De De Pyaar De – 103.5 crores

Gold – 105 crores

Son of Sardaar – 105 crores

Films that missed the 100 crores mark

Batla House – Rs 99.5 crore

Welcome Back – Rs 97 crore
