In 2017, Bollywood movies have failed to perform commercial success at Box Office. Only 6 Hindi movies have managed to enter in 100 Crore club in 2017. These are Kaabil, Toilet, Jolly LLB 2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Shahrukh Khan starrer Raees and Salman Khan starrer Tubelight. The year has also proved that even superstars such as Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan can’t guarantee a film’s success. With Jab Harry Met Sejal & Tubelight failing miserably, it’s obvious the two need to do some massive thinking going forward. If we exclude Hindi dubbed movie Baahubali, then there are many big budget films which turned out as the biggest flops of the year. All the directors and producers are hoping to make a strong comeback in 2018. Akashy Kumar, who gave back to back hit movies in past couple of years, could be seen in numerous Bollywood projects.
