This year, 2018, has been a glorious year for a lot many actors and actresses with a lot many movies joining the crore clubs in a very short span! While most of the movies did well, the two most talked about movies were, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor starrer, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat and Ranbir Kapoor starrer Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju! Both the movies did a splendid job at the box office! While the two movies are the highest grosser of the year, neither Ranveer, nor Ranbir is the highest earner of the year!

Both the movies, Padmaavat and Sanju crossed the 300 crore mark with Padmaavat having a lifetime earning of Rs. 301 crore and Sanju with the ongoing collection steadily at the box office, 326.80 crore till date! While these movies top the charts, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh have been left behind by an actor who has a an earning of more than the two!
