If we will consider the whole time period of Bollywood till now then it’s a tie between two actors Govinda and Mithun Chakraborty.

Mithun Chakraborty: For the year 1986, Mithun has a record-breaking 15 movie releases to his credit. While few would remember titles like Karamdaata and Avinash, there’s no taking away from the feat itself.


Govinda: Three years after he debuted, Govinda appeared in 15 films in 1989. These included hits like Do Qaidi and Taaqatwar which together crossed Rs.3 crore at the box office. The latter was also his first film with director David Dhawan, with whom he delivered several hits later.


Shatrughan Sinha: Right at the beginning of his career in 1971, the actor had 13 releases. These included several guest appearances but Gulzar’s highly acclaimed Mere Apne saved the day for him.

Dharmendra: In 1977, Dharmendra was seen in 12 movies, including some big hits. Dream Girl, Dharam Veer and Chacha Bhatija together crossed nearly Rs.12 crore. His special appearance in Gulzar’s critically-acclaimed Kinara is memorable.


Rajesh Khanna: At the peak of his career in 1972, Khanna had 11 film releases, including a Telugu movie called Bangaru Babu directed by V.B. Rajendra Prasad. Some of his Hindi films released that year included superhits like Amar Prem, Apna Desh and Mere Jeevan Saathi, which together earned more than Rs.5 crore.

Jeetendra: In 1972, Jeetendra appeared in 10 films. While these included two special appearances in Chori Chori and Garam Masala, his most memorable turn was as the kind teacher in Parichay, director Gulzar’s adaptation of The Sound of Music.


Amitabh Bachchan: Before he hit super-stardom and was trying to find his feet in the industry, Bachchan was credited with nine releases in 1972. While these include special appearances and voice-overs as well, none of them, except S.Ramanathan’s romantic-thriller Bombay To Goa that crossed the Rs.1 crore mark, are particularly memorable.
