    With Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (PRDP) box office collections turning into a mega success with Rs 200 crore (so far), which followed in close succession to his earlier release in 2015 of Bajrangi Bhaijan with Rs 320.34 crore (domestic and international markets) respectively, the question that the mammoth numbers are giving rise to is, are the Rs 200 crore and Rs 300 crore clubs passe and we should now expect to see the emergence of the Rs 400 crore club? The answer is a surprising one! (Bollywood Hungama)

    As 2015 comes to a close, it is surely time to take stock and begin looking at the prospects for 2016 and thereafter. Superstar Salman Khan's penchant for producing blockbuster hits has given rise to talk of a new trend happening wherein most big production, top actor starrers are expected to climb up the Rs 100 cr, Rs 200 cr and Rs 300 cr marks to the Rs 400 cr mark - Rs 500 cr mark is still beyond the scope of speculation. That the other two Khans, Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have also made short work of the Rs 100 cr and Rs 200 cr marks and others in the mix like Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar too looking good while chalking up mammoth box office numbers recently, the Rs 400 cr mark talk is rife in the industry and in the wider public.

    All this talk may have got you all excited, but sad to say, we must pour cold water over your thought processes and say ‘No’. As a matter of fact one can’t bet on that kind of succes becoming a general trend and in fact possibility of any kind of film reaching the Rs 400 cr mark is virtually nil till at least the end of 2016 and perhaps well into 2017.

    Having said that, the business of films is growing for sure with Aamir Khan’s PK and Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan box office collections making over Rs 300 crore within 8 months of each other. Then there is Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which is set to cross the Rs 200 crore mark. If not for the clash, both Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale and Deepika Padukone’s Bajirao Mastani could have comfortably crossed this mark solely on the basis of their opening weekend. Now, it would be the differentiated content that would do the talking, and with some luck, both could still cross this mark. (Bollywood Hungama)

    However, no matter what kind of speculation is being driven by Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (PRDP) box office collections, the hard fact is that the increase in footfalls is linear and not exponential. In simpler terms, it is not multiplying by such leaps and bounds that every ‘good’ film starts entering the Rs 100 crore club, every biggie turns into a Rs 200 crore outing and a major superstar’s film steps into the Rs 300 crore territory as a routine measure.

    Nevertheless, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (PRDP) box office collections and some films before this have definitely created real possibility of that happening, but only from 2017 onwards when more multiplexes mushroom across the country and there are added screens as well. Currently, the contribution of single screens is quite low, even though the footfalls compare well with multiplexes. The revenue generated from B and C centers is low, even though a lot of people are watching films there. However, since piracy is still endemic, there is a substantial population that is still content with watching a film for just 50 bucks, and that too with the entire family. This is a phenomenon prevalent not just in small towns but with upper class audiences in cities too. (Bollywood Hungama)

    So, it is not the calisthenics or acting capability of our prancing actors, or for that matter staid but wildly popular family oriented movies like Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, that will decide whether every top movie by a big actor enters the Rs 400 cr club, instead it is the infrastructure in terms of presence of theatres/multiplexes that will decide the time. Therefore, this problem can be beaten only if there are more theaters screening films right at the doorstep. (Bollywood Hungama)

    Once the infra is ready and it is no longer a chore to get to the cinema or stand in long lines for tickets (online purchases to the rescue), the Rs 400 crore club entry for a film becomes a very likely possibility. For now, for some film to put Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (PRDP) box office collections to shame, will require a work of true magic. As far as 2016 is concerned, the year has quite a few major films lined up in the form of Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Fan’ and ‘Raees’, Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ and Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’. Will any of these films hit the Rs 400 crore box office collections mark? The first step in that direction will be taken when teh Rs 200 cr and Rs 300 crore films become a trend, rather than an one-off event for all superstar biggies and that in turn would lead to the emergence of the Rs 400 crore club.
