  1. ADD Chennai Express its ATBB collected 227cr n u too have verdicted CE ATBB in Srk film list update it

      1. abe ATBB ka mtlb smhhta hai be?
        ATBB means that movie which becomes the highest grosser till date by surpassing the previous highest grosser. and CE broke 3Idiots' record.. no other movie before CE could broke 3Idiots' record
        And list is clearly wrong
        Aamir has 4 ATBB namely Ghajini, 3Idiots, Dhoom3 amd PK
        Salman & SRK have only one. i.e-HAHK & CE respectively..

        1. Dabang, Bajrangi Baijan and Sultan did not beat the previous records remove them from this list

        2. OSO was highest grossing movie of all time beating D2.Rab ne bana Di Jodi was also highest grossing movie of all time beating OSO. CE was highest grossing movie of all time beating 3I.

      2. Chennai express was an athg domestic and worldwide yet it's not an atbb then bajrangi bhaijaan, Dhoom 3, p.k, kkhh, actually most of the movies don't classify as an atbb!

        Attb for me is anything that beats the previous record of highest grosser?

        My list:

        Mother India
        Mughal e azam
        Maine Pyaar kiya (@bollyarena mpk had beaten sholay record)
        3 Idiots
        Chennai Express (CE had beaten 3 Idiots hg record)
        Dhoom 3

        Looks good to me because every movie in the list had beaten the previous domestic highest grosser record!

        Dhoom 3 and chennai express had come in the same year but chennai express had beaten 3 Idiots and then Dhoom 3 beat ce so both deserve atbb!

        Disappointed! Where's OSO, Dhoom 2, Ghajini! All had beaten highest grosser of all time! All 3 of these movies came before 3 Idiots and had beaten gadar collections!

  2. What will be the collection of bajirao mastani?will it edge over dilwale because of its strong content+Heart mesmerising songs+visual delight scenes+never before seen dramatic confrontation+director who has 100%record of critical acclaim+strong starcast??

  3. i don't think that dhoom 3 is all time blockbuster its good film but not as good as the oder films that you mentained in the list

  4. Bollyarena grt job done but I think Chennai express should be in the list and 1 more think Salman Khan has 5 ATBB with KKHH.

  5. what i use to say is where is chennai express was the highest grosser of that time thn y it is not atbb ???

  6. I think kick and kkhh should b the atbb movie's list....bollyarena plz correct the atbb movie's list.


  8. I think we underrate Sunny Deol too much. Shouldn't Border and Tridev also be in this list?

  9. Some idiot are asking to add ce in this list where they already know ce is only blockbuster really useless srk ka useless fan kabi nahi suderenge

    1. abe chu**** tell me if CE aint ATBB then how come Dabaang And Dhoom3 ATBB?? these two are BB as well...

    2. Comment:And iditos are asking to add KKHH Salman's movie.Useless Salman ka useless fans kabi nahi suderenge.

  10. I am amazed..how can people expect a trash like chennai express to b ATBB??? It didnt even deserve a HIT status. It was that ridiculous!!

    1. I do agree CE is not that good movie but its collection was highest when it achieved the 227 crore in Bollywood.
      By the way dhoom3 and dabang series movies are all trash movies as well...Only collection was good like CE... So what u call Dhoom 3 and dabang series movies???? Thrash or All time blockbuster...
      What about PK movie??? Do u feel PK is good movie??? good message rt ???? idol worship is wrong rt??? All time Blockbuster rt??? So when will u stop worshiping idols ???

  11. ya bollywood arena app log thik tu hu na...where is CE...means chennai express...if this is not in list all your list is crap.....

  12. @Bollyarena, Salman Khan ETT is also ATBB you give it in your article, please add it.....

  13. @Bollyarena

    Whether you love it or hate it....you can't ignore Chennai Express as an ATBB...

    Once you also declared CE as ATBB...

    Reply Bollyarena...waiting for your explanation

  15. Some mistakes. Chennai express was atbb. Also dhiom 2 when released was biggest grosser . And awara became biggest grosser in 1950 to be replaced by sri 420 1955. Pls get ur facts right

  16. I think dhoom 3 and sultan not considered as atbb ......the more collection BCz of higher ticket price ....

  17. Pk also got atbb status due to high price ticket rates. If we consider this criterian pk should not be included in this list too

  18. Salman Khan All Time Blockbuster List.
    1. Maine Pyaar Kiya
    2. Hum Apke Hain Koun
    3. Dabbang
    4. Bajrangi Bhaijaan
    5. Sultan

    incorrect you List, actually 5 ATBB and Excluding Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, if include kuch kuch hota hai then 6 All Time Blockbuster.

    1. @vijju krish has Salman given an athg since hahk NO I can't think of any but if dabang, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and sultan are atbb, then this is SRK ATBB list!

      Karan Arjun
      Veer Zaara
      Chak De India!
      Chennai Express

      I don't agree with my list but that's what you are trying to prove by your list!

  19. Hahan bhai salman khan also 5 at atbb main pyaar kiya hum saath saath hai dabangg bajrangibhaijaan sultan

  20. I could not understand why bollyarena did not include Kuch kuch hota hai in salman category. Salman played a very important role in the film he also bagged the best supporting award for that role. He is a part of that film. So add one more film atbb in salman tally


    1. 7 nahi 17 likhde tere bolne se thda na saari ATBB ban jayengi.phut yahan se

      Aamir5 ATBB's
      Criminal-3 nos
      SRK-2 nos

  22. "The latest film to join the elite club is Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan"
    "Salman Khan – 4 Films"

    @Dear Admin
    What are these things? Plz update the article....SULTAN is the latest movie to join the club. And also now Salman has 5 blockbusters (6 including KKHH) not 4.

  23. bollyareana recount salman's movie in your atbb list. its 5
    1. maine pyaar kiya

  24. Comment:guys like it or not amir is best in box office pk and dhoom 3 back to back atbb ghajini and 3 idiot Also back to back Atbb and the Great DANGAL is also on d way watch out haters

  25. Dabang and Sultan are not not all time blockbusters.

    The movie (Dabang) which is released in 2010 collected only 145 cr how can u call it ATBB. Bcz 2009 release 3 idiots crossed the 200 cr mark.

    Check ur list in boxofficeindia dot com.

    Sultan also not a ATBB it is well ***ked by Dangal

  26. Bkwas h ye..... abe bollyarena walo tumhe industry ka knowledge h ya nhi.... dabngg, sultan... kha h ye movie..... dabng (145cr)
    Sultan (300cr)
    Add d movie vrna puri list htao

  27. Oh my god ... Where is the 1st century of Bollywood ???? Ghajini (114 cr in domestic market) in 2008 ..... And also beat the alltime record of Gadar (75 cr) of 2001 ..... And enjoy the alltime highest grossing Hindi film for 1 year until beaten by 3 Idiots (202 cr) in 2009 ..... And 3 Idiots enjoy it for 4 years .... But C.Exp (226 cr) enjoy it only 4 months (2013 Aug to 2013 Dec) ...... Which is beaten by Dhoom 3 (280 cr) ....

  28. everybody has got the equation wrong on what ATBB is.. they feel if it collects the highest, it turns into one. NO.
    It depends on budget, revenue, distributor pc.... etc..
    CE was such an irritating movie.. it shudnt even feature in HIT category.. I was the most devastated man whn it crossed a classic like 3 idiots.. phewwwww.. disgrace to hindi cinema..
