The year 2015 is over and Deepika Padukone has emerged as the topper in the ‘Female Celebrities’ list in Bollywood courtesy three standout movies, latest being Bajirao Mastani whose box office collections beat Shahrukh Khan’s Dilwale.
However, while compiling the list a surprise emerged when we compared the box office collections across two metrics – in ‘cumulative’ box office collections she emerges winner, but ‘average’ per movie collections, the earnings get watered down a lot.
So, while Deepika, who featured in three releases last year, Piku, Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani, tops the cumulative charts with Rs 327.03 crore, she comes in 5th in terms of per movie average collections with Rs 109.01 crore.
The same, when compared in terms of per film average box office collections, since Kareena featured in a single release, her average remains the highest at Rs 320.34 cr, in effect she tops the list, beating Deepika.
Following Kareena in cumulative collections is Sonam Kapoor with a total of Rs 229.42 cr, from two releases Dolly Ki Doli and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
However in the other metric, the per movie average chart, Sonam Kapoor ranks fourth with collections of Rs 114.71 cr.
Kajol and Kriti Sanon in terms of cumulative collections rank sixth and seventh respectively. However, both of whom featured in a single release Dilwale last year have come in second and third place respectively in the average chart with collections of Rs 150 cr.
NOTE – Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale still running in theatres. For basis of calculation, lifetime of Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale are approximated at 180 cr and 150 cr respectively.
