A source from the channel reveals: “The channel’s programming explores every aspect of Bollywood – be it the films, the music, the stars, the film-makers or any other aspect. Films that have crossed the magical Rs 100 crore mark at the c are obviously the ones that have got massive popular appeal and Zoom is going to take its viewers inside the coveted 100 Crore Club to find out what the secret of their success is.”

The first episode of the show will feature the 2012 blockbuster Barfi that not just broke the Box Office records but also came out of the typical masala movie mold and made a space in the 100 crore club. Other blockbuster movies that would feature in the series include Ek Tha Tiger, Dabangg 2, Rowdy Rathore, Agneepath, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Housefull 2, Son of Sardaar and Bol Bachchan.
