The ‘100 Crore Club’ was formed shortly after Aamir Khan’s Ghajini became the first Bollywood film to gross more than Rs 100 crore in India. Allu Aravind, Tagore Madhu, and Madhu Mantena co-produced Ghajini, a 2008 Indian Hindi-language action thriller film written and directed by A. R. Murugadoss. Murugadoss’ own 2005 Tamil film of the same name, which was inspired by the 2000 film Memento and the 1951 British picture Happy Go Lovely, is remade here. It stars Aamir Khan, Asin, Jiah Khan, Pradeep Rawat, Tinnu Anand, Sunil Grover, Khalid Siddiqui. It also starred Riyaz Khan, Tinnu Anand, Sunil Grover, Khalid Siddiqui, and Riyaz Khan in the prominent role. A. R. Rahman composed the score and soundtrack, and Aamir co-wrote a modified climax.
The paid preview collections for Ghajini totaled $27 million. It went on to become the highest-grossing Indian film of all time until it was eclipsed the following year by Aamir Khan’s 3 idiots (2009) and subsequently by Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express (2013).
In May of 2007, the shooting started in Chennai. The final scene was shot at Hyderabad’s Old City. Bangalore, Cape Town, Namibia’s Deadpan Desert, and Mumbai were among the other filming destinations. Aamir Khan has spent a year preparing for his role by working out at the gym. While Asin made his Bollywood debut with this film. The production budget for the film was 65 crore (equivalent to 148 crores or US$20 million in 2021). In just five days, Ghajini grossed Rs 110 crore. On December 30, 2008, a success party was held at the Taj Land’s End hotel in Mumbai to celebrate the achievement.
