Sports stories tend to go over well with Bollywood audiences. The beautiful father-daughter relationships at the centre of Dangal (Wrestling Match) captivated viewers and pushed the biopic into the Rs10 billion club.

The Aamir Khan starrer also catapulted Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh, who played Khan's daughters who go on to become wrestling champions, into stardom.

2. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (Rs17.47 billion)
