Box office collection 2019: We are into the second quarter of 2019 and the year has started on a positive for Bollywood with many films like 'Uri: The Surgical Strike', 'Total Dhamaal' and 'Gully Boy' performing exceptionally well. But, what's new this year is the fact that while many big names have failed to set new standards, some conventional stars have broken the box office. Both Ranveer Singh and Akshay Kumar enjoyed success with Gully Boy and Kesari, respectively but none of the films managed to aggregate the kind of numbers expected from them. On the other hand, Anil Kapoor has managed to lure viewers with 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' and 'Total Dhamaal'. Here are the top 5 earning actors of 2019:

Like a wine, Anil Kapoor is getting better with age - both in looks as well as his selection of roles. While Total Dhamaal saw the funny side of the actor, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga addresses a sensitive issue. The actor has managed to rake in Rs 174.25 crore so far. (Twitter)

There was a time when Vicky Kaushal was playing small roles in films like 'Bombay Velvet' and 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana'. Now, he is the undisputed king of box office with 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' performing beyond everyone's expectations. The film earned a massive Rs 245.36 crore and is still the highest earner of the year. (Twitter)
