Whenever we think about an Eid release, the first thing that comes to our mind is all the Salman Khan blockbusters. From the past decade, we have seen Bhaijaan ruling this auspicious festive weekend and delivering money-spinners like Wanted, Dabangg, Ek Tha Tiger, Kick, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan, Race 3 and many more. But that doesn't mean, Eid only belongs to Salman Khan. There are non-Salman Khan films too which shattered many records at the ticket windows and turned out to be a huge Eid treat for the audience. So, let's check them out...
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) - Rs 56 crore
Right after Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Karan Johar entertained us with one of the biggest films of that year, which had the ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Jaya Bachchan, Kajol and Kareena Kapoor Khan. The family drama was loved by the audiences and became the second highest grossing film of all-time after Gadar: Ek Prem Katha.
