Put Indian Box Office on fire when released at their scheduled time. Some big stared films received mixed reviews from critics and audiences but the crazy fans couldn’t stop themselves and made them Box Office hits.
Currently, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan ruling Box Office because they both have an unmatched fan base across the world. Their films Dhoom 3 and Preem Ratan Dhan Payo received negative reviews but look at their Box Office record nobody will believe that these films have disliked at that time.
Apart from the superstardom, Indian movies and Box office Collection is the just unpredictable thing, a strong content is always winner either the film is expensive or cheap. A big star needs good content to sustain his/her stardom but there is not necessary that a strong content for a big star.
The latest super hit comedy-drama Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety proved that audiences don’t look at the star cast and budget, they just want something interesting, entertaining, inspiring and masala content in the films, the controlled budget Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety crossed Rs 100 Crore mark so this is a blockbuster. Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi2 is another blockbuster in 2018.
