2022, has been kind to the Indian Film Industry. The amount of revenue Indian films have pulled off this year is just breathtaking, and regional films turned into Pan-Indian films and earned huge at Indian Box Office. Few films have reached a global audience, a big special mention to RRR.
In 2022, some heroes have become stars, and some stars gave their biggest comebacks, some heroes scored continuous hits. Oh, a lot is happening for heroes this year.
Today, we are going to take a look at 18 Heroes Who Ruled The Indian Box Office In 2022
1. Kamal Haasan – Vikram
If you want to talk about a comeback, there is nothing bigger than Vikram. Kamal’s previous films bombed at the box office and everyone believed his star power was over at the box office, then came Vikram, and it became an earth-shattering hit, proving ‘Form is temporary, Class is permanent.’
Thank you Loki, this generation gets to know what a beast of a performer and star Kamal Haasan was/is.
2. Jr. NTR – RRR
Bheem has become global. NTR has always been a performer, but it’s the directors that always lack to give him powerful scripts and performances, finally, Rajamouli, the guardian angel of Tarak, has once again presented Tarak in a beastly avatar, that made the Indian/Global audience shout ‘Komaram Bheemudoooo’
3. Dulquer Salmaan – Sita Ramam, Chup: Revenge of the Artist
Dulquer has acted in 4 films this year, one of them, Sita Ramam, becoming a box office blockbuster, and Chup becoming a decent performer at the box office, with these two films his stardom has reached extreme this year.
4. Rishabh Shetty – Kantara
What can we say about this man? The man single-handedly destroyed the box office with extremely pure mainstream storytelling. No promotions before the release, nothing. The film came, conquered, and left.
5. Dhanush – Thiruchitrambalam, IMDb Top Indian star of 2022
Dhanush has always had this balance, every year he continuously turns out film after film at the box office, some of them go unnoticed, and at least one will be a box office hit. Thiruchitrambalam has been that super hit for Dhanush this year. And with The Gray Man, he reached a global audience this year.
He was the IMDb Top Indian Star of 2022.
6. Yash – KGF 2
The biggest hit of 2022. With more than Rs. 1,200 crores, Yash starred KGF 2 stood number 1 at the Indian box office for the year 2022.
7. Ram Charan – RRR, True Legend Future Of Young India award
With RRR, Rama Raju has enthralled the global audience. And his stardom has skyrocketed this year. Recently, he received the ‘True Legend Future Of Young India Award’
8. Karthik Aaryan – Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2
If there was one Bollywood hero, who has a positive outcome in 2022, it must be Karthik Aaryan.
With his Bhool Bhulaiyaa, he delivered a blockbuster.
9. Pradeep Ranganathan – Love Today
With Love Today, he conquered the Tamil & Telugu audience hearts. His success this year, has been inspirational to many more youngsters.
10. Mammootty – Bheeshma Parvam, Rorschach
Five films of Mammootty have been released this year. Two of these films have become box office winners. The way Mammootty is making films with youngsters should be a lesson for all the stars.
11. Kalyan Ram – Bimbisara
With Bimbisara, Kalyan Ram delivered a huge box office hit which was needed for him at this point in time.
12. Nikhil Siddhartha – Karthikeya 2
Karthikeya 2 has been the biggest hit of his career so far. He scored a blockbuster in the North too with his Karthikeya 2.
13. Thiruveer – Masooda
If there is one film and one hero that stood everyone by surprise this year, then it must be Masooda and its Gopi aka Thiruveer.
I have a strong feeling, this guy will become a beautiful actor, hope he gets the right movies, picks the right movies, and avoid all those cliched films which kill the actors, this is where all the young heroes go wrong most of the time. I hope Thiruveer doesn’t fall into this trap of success and formulas.
14. Siddhu Jonnalagadda – DJ Tillu
With DJ Tillu, our Siddhu has finally delivered that huge box office, money maker. He has become a sensation with DJ Tillu. Make some more noise with Tillu square.
15. Karthi – Pooniyin Selvan 1, Sardar
Delivered two box office blockbusters this year. And his next movie line up is strong too. Everyone is waiting to see him as Dilli again.
16. Prithiviraj – Jana Gana Mana, Kaduva
If there is one man, who directs, produces, and acts in films every year, then it must be Prithiviraj. How can he do all these things in a single year? He acted in five films this year, two becoming box office winners.
17. Rakshit Shetty – 777 Charlie
We can say, 2022 belongs to the Shettys. One is Rishabh and the other is Rakshit. Charlie became the biggest hit of Rakshit’s career so far.
18. Vikram – Mahaan, Ponniyin Selvan: I
One is a blockbuster in OTT and the other one is a blockbuster at the box office.
