Aamir Khan founded the Rs 100 crore club with Ghajini in 2008.
Since then, as many as 87 films have scored a century at the box office, sometimes doubling and tripling it.
Baahubali – The Conclusion hit it out of the park by starting the Rs 500 crore club.
The films in this elite Rs 100 crore club belong to a handful of actors.
Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar lead the list, and Ajay Devgn follows close behind.
Joginder Tuteja sees just how many Rs 100 crore movies Bollywood’s top actors have in their kitty.
Salman Khan: 14

It has been an unbelievable run for Salman Khan ever since he scored his first century with 2010’s Dabangg.
From then on, he’s had 14 consecutive films join this club.
Even his weakest films like Tubelight and Race 3 have achieved this feat.
His next big release Dabangg 3 will probably take the count to 15.
Akshay Kumar: 13
Housefull 4, Mission Mangal, Kesari, 2.0, Gold, Toilet-Ek Prem Katha, Jolly LLB 2, Rustom, Housefull 3, Airlift, Rowdy Rathore, Holiday, Housefull 2

Close on the heels of Salman Khan is Akshay Kumar.
From Airlift to Housefull 4, he has seen 11 big hits.
It could have been an uninterrupted run had Padman not fallen short of the Rs 100 crore mark.
Will his next film Good Newwz live up to its name?
Ajay Devgn: 10
De De Pyaar De, Total Dhamaal, Raid, Golmaal Again, Shivaay, Singham Returns, Son of Sardaar, Bol Bachchan, Singham, Golmaal 3

Ajay Devgn has been consistent throughout his almost three-decade career.
His last four releases have been blockbuster franchises — Golmaal and Singham — and they contributed in a major way.
He had films doing poor business too, like Baadshaho, but his line-up ahead is fabulous.
Shah Rukh Khan: 7
Raees, Dilwale, Happy New Year, Chennai Express, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Don 2, Ra. One

Post 2011’s Ra.One, Shah Rukh Khan was scoring centuries consistently.
However, after 2015’s Dilwale, he stumbled quite a few times.
Though Raees managed to enter the Rs 100 crore club, the failure of films like Fan, Jab Harry Met Sejal and Zero hit him hard.
He’s taken a break from acting now, but it’s probably just a matter of time before he bounces back.
Aamir Khan: 6
Thugs of Hindostan, Dangal, PK, Dhoom: 3, 3 Idiots, Ghajini

When he comes, he strikes hard!
Except for Thugs of Hindostan which failed badly (even though it went past the Rs 150 crore mark), it has been a dream run for Aamir Khan ever since he founded the Rs 100 crore club with Ghajini in 2008.
In fact, he is also the founder of the Rs 200 crore club (3 Idiots) and the Rs 300 crore club (Dangal).
Hrithik Roshan: 6
War, Super 30, Kaabil, Bang Bang, Krrish 3, Agneepath

He’s done lesser films as compared to his counterparts but Hrithik Roshan has six centuries to his name in a career spanning almost two decades.
This year, he has already scored a century in Super 30 and a triple century in War.
Riteish Deshmukh: 6
Housefull 4, Total Dhamaal, Housefull 3, Ek Villain, Grand Masti, Housefull 2

Riteish Deshmukh finds himself on the list with six centuries.
None of these have been a solo hero film, as Riteish excels in multi-starrers.
But the success of Ek Villain can be attributed to him.
Ranveer Singh: 5
Gully Boy, Simmba, Padmaavat, Bajirao Mastani, Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela

Ranveer Singh has scored three back-to-back centuries with films belonging to different genres.
Three out of his five centuries have been with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
The newest superstar on the block, Ranveer will be seen in ’83 next.
Varun Dhawan: 4
Judwaa 2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Dilwale, Any Body Can Dance 2

Varun was enjoying back-to-back hits before the under-performance of the well-reviewed October, the ordinary response to Sui Dhaaga and the failure of Kalank pulled him back a little.
Still, he has four centuries to his credit.
He will be seen next in Coolie No 1 and Street Dancer, which are set to raise his century count.
Ranbir Kapoor: 4
Sanju, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Barfi!

Ranbir Kapoor would probably have managed many more centuries but he’s always been careful about his movie choices.
He hit the jackpot with Sanju which turned out to be huge.
Next, he has biggies like Brahmastra and Shamshera lined-up.
Abhishek Bachchan: 4
Housefull 3, Happy New Year, Dhoom: 3, Bol Bachchan

He has not scored a solo century yet even though he played the title role in Bol Bachchan. But Abhishek has been a part of successful projects in his career.
Each of the films have belonged to different genres, proving his powerful range of acting.
Now, Abhishek will be seen next in The Big Bull.
