Highest grosser of the year is a record that every superstar wishes to deliver at least once in their career. What separates a star from a superstar is their ability to deliver multiple highest grossing films of the year through their acting career. In this article, we will talk about the stars who have delivered the highest grosser of the year for the maximum number of times. The one leading the list of highest grosser of the year is Salman Khan. Through his 34 years in the Hindi Film Industry, Bhaijaan has delivered 10 Highest Grossing Hindi Film of the Year, which is a record of sorts.

The fifth position has been tied between Raj Kapoor, Dharmendra, and Shah Rukh Khan. Each of them has delivered the 5 highest grossing films in their career but Shah Rukh Khan has a chance to topple them if he scores another highest grosser which will cement his position at number 6.
