The Jungle Book is the second highest inflation adjusted grosser as far as Hollywood films are concerned. The biggest is still Titanic released in 1998 which grossed 29 crore nett at the time of release and that equates to 174 crore nett today The top five inflation adjusted Hollywood grossers based on 2015 ticket rates in India till date are as follows.


1. Titanic (1998) - 174 crore

2. The Jungle Book (2016) - 118 crore (13 days)

3. 2012 (2009) - 112 crore

4. Jurassic World (1994) - 100 crore

5. Fast & Furious 7 (2015) - 97 crore



The Jungle Book may hit 150 crore but its very unlikely to catch Titanic which had close to 2 crore footfalls in India. Still its a big achievement because basically its the second biggest blockbuster ever for Hollywood in India. All the above are All Time Blockbuster hollywood releases in India. The other being Spiderman 3 which has a 80 crore nett inflation adjusted nett gross.


The big Hindi film grossers recently be it Bajrangi Bhaijaan or PK will probably not even be in the top twenty as far as Hindi films are concerned. It shows how the audience for Hollywood releases is growing as a film today can challenge to be the biggest of all time against previous Hollywood releases but the biggest Hindi film falls well short of its counterparts of 20-30 years back..
