Famous movie Sholay goes to the highest ever gross earning (inflation adjusted) in Bollywood history. This film is a 1975 action-adventure film, directed by Ramesh Sippy and produced by his father G. P. Sippy. When Sholay released on 15 August 1975, it received negative critical reviews and a tepid commercial response, but favourable word-of-mouth publicity helped it to become a box office success. It broke records for continuous showings in many theatres across India, and ran for more than five years at Mumbai's Minerva theatre. By some accounts, Sholay is the highest grossing Indian film of all time, adjusted for inflation.
