1. Data on box-office collections of top films was available from 1994 onwards. Or, 28 years. For each year, we considered the top 10 films by total collections (sum of domestic and overseas). This listing doesn’t include films dubbed in Hindi (like Bahubali). Further, we placed these films in 4 buckets of 7 years each. A theatre ticket today costs many times more than what it did in, say, 1994. To enable comparison across time, we adjusted collections of older films for inflation.
