Success/Flop of Bollywood Movies!
After knowing everything about Bollywood movies, on how they originated and how to works, verdicts, Bollywood box office, Budget of Bollywood movies and many more things, ever wondered after so much success, why hit ratio is not upto the mark? Why films fail to perform in cinemas? why stardom fails to attract audience?
In 80’s, 90’s and 00’s, Bollywood was all about stardom, movies of big stars were used to perform and the one’s with big dreams in their eyes of working in Bollywood and becoming successful struggled to every step.
Yeah right, the one’s belong to the class of common people. Very few actors from families having no connections with Bollywood were able to keep up the other’s stars. Most of the actors that time had some kind of connections with Bollywood and used to get names of big directors and big movies.
Now also this hasn’t changed much but their is some progress. People have started appreciating small budget films, good direction, good acting. Now-a-days films are judged by their content like Akshay Kumar had a successful comeback with the help of movies which gives social messages like Padman, toilet, etc. Stardom is not everything today as many movies of big actors have failed to have a Bollywood box collection in box office India like tube light of salman khan, Jab Harry Met Sejal of Shahrukh khan etc.
