Box office collection: As we enter the second quarter of 2019, a number of big releases await moviegoers. Karan Johar's multi-starrer period drama 'Kalank' is set to hit the theatres next week while Shahid Kapoor's 'Kabir Singh' is already creating a lot of buzz with its teaser release.

And, Kartik Aryaan cashed in on his rising popularity as big names like Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh did well at the box office too. Here are the top 5 earning films of 2019 so far:
