So who will rule Bollywood Box office collections 2016? Big Question which is trending in every one’s mind, Lets have a prediction over here.
2015 was Salman Khan’s year… no two words about that! The man actually controlled the year with the super accomplishments of Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, and can be announced the most bankable star in the present part?
Be that as it may, will he keep up the present state of affairs in 2016? Will Aamir Khan, who didn’t have a solitary release in 2015, overwhelm him? Then again SRK, who has two releases in 2016? Shouldn’t something be said about the courageous women? Since Deepika doesn’t have a solitary release one year from now, will Priyanka, Kangana give in on her nonappearance?
Here are some expectation of ten top stars who will be having their big releases one year from now, and how their films will admission
Shah Rukh Khan
A few months after Fan, SRK will be seen in a tough role of a Gujrati don in Rahul Dholakia’s Raees, that’s jointly produced by Red Chillies & Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment. The movies also stars Mahira Khan & powerhouse performer, Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Again, this is not a typical SRK movie, but going by the response to the first tease, we expect the movie to have a thunderous start. Also there are rumours going around that Sultan may get postponed to October, so Raees could have EID all to itself, & hence better collections!
Do I even need to predict anything here? Salman Khan is in the best phase of his career, & anything he touches turns to platinum, forget gold! Sultan is his solo release in 2016, & if rumours that’re going around are right, it may not release on Eid along with Raees. Instead, it may come out in September. The point to note is longer the delay, the more the anticipation. So Sultan will definitely have a bumper opening. Also, his new look has been praised a lot, & he could also gain some brownie points from the critics for his performance.
Verdict: Sure-shot blockbuster!
We can never question Aamir Khan’s ingenuity. The man knows how to mix things up. On one h&, he does complete masal stuff like Dhoom 3 & PK, & on the other h&, he lends himself to serious cinema like Dhobi Ghaat. Dangal come after 2 years, since PK’s release, & there was no release for the actor in 2015. So his fans would be really eager to wait what surprise the actor had in store for them. However, Dangal is a biopic & is not looking like a typical mainstream movie, hence it’s reach could be limited. However, Aamir’s performance would be definitely be lauded by all & sundry!
Verdict: Critics’ favourite, would reach 100 crore club, thanks to Aamir’s marketing genius!
While no one’s gone praising around, Akshay Kumar also had a brilliant 2015, with all of his movies, be it Baby, Brothers & Singh is Bliing working at the box office. 2016 starts off for the actor with Airlift, which by all that we have seen from the promos till now, is a movie to watch out for. Again. it’s not a typical mainstream movie, therefore has a restricted audience. But if Baby worked, so can Airlift, especially since the other major releases in January happen to be Ghayal Once Again
Verdict: Success with critics, & will do fairly well at the box office!
movie: Mohenjo Dharo
Like Aamir Khan, even Hrithik Roshan returns to screen after two years for this prehistoric adventure drama. So naturally, there is a lot of excitement built around the project, especially about the ancient setting on which the premise is based. The last time Hrithik & Ashutosh Gowariker worked together, it resulted in a surprise hit in Jodhaa Akbar. However, Ashutosh’s box office performance after that is definitely not enviable. So people don’t have much expectations of the movie. But who knows…if Shyamalan can make a comeback of sorts with The Visit, so can Ashutosh!
Verdict: Could be a surprise winner!
movie: Jai Gangaajal
Priyanka Chopra may have scored 2015 with some brilliant performances in Dil Dhadakne Do, Bajirao Mastani & even her TV series Quantico. However, she has only one release in 2016, that is Jai Gangaajal. While the actress must be appreciated for taking on such a gritty role of a female top cop, the trailer shown to us last week was less than promising & looked more like an acting showreel of director Prakash Jha. Unless there is some surprise element in the movie or if it is even a patch of the original Ajay Devgn-starrer Gangajal, we don’t have too much hopes on this!
Verdict: Could get a great start, but can end up as an average grosser
Abhishek Kapoor last two movies as a director had bowled us over, be it Rock on or Kai Po Che. Both were successes at the box office as well. However his latest movie, Fitoor, an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, has run into a lot of hassles during the production, major being Rekha walking out of the movie, & hastily being replaced by Tabu. Also both the lead stars, Katrina Kaif & Aditya Roy Kapoor’s last movies have tanked, so there is less buzz about them. So it’s quite an uphill task for the makers of the movie.
Verdict: A difficult proposition, unless Abhishek Kapoor has an ace hidden in his sleeve…
movie: Kapoor & Sons
Alia Bhatt has two different releases this year. First one of the Karan Johar produced Kapoor & Sons, that co-stars Sidharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan & Rishi Kapoor. The plot of the movie sounds promising, & since it’s a Dharma production, expect it to have some really great visuals. Also, they have a good record with dramas, so this can be a winner
Kangana Ranaut will be working for the first time with Vishal Bharadwaj in Rangoon. She will also be paired for the first time with Saif Ali Khan & Shahid Kapoor. Vishal has seldom gone wrong with the quality of his movies, though none of his movies are not exactly 100 crore club members. Kangana too had a patchy 2015, with Tanu Weds manu Returns turning out to be a blockbuster, only to be negated by the dismal failures of I Love NY & Katti Batti. This period drama of hers could get her regain her lost ground, tough it would never be too big a hit like TWMR!
Verdict: Can bowl over critics & multiplex audiences!
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
The biopic of a man trapped in Pakistan jail for years before he was killed, & of his sister’s futile struggles to get him out is not a mainstream topic. Omung Kumar’s debut flick Mary Kom was an uplifting movie, but here the tale could turn out too depressing for the audience. Not that we are saying that it will not turn out to be a good movie, but not every emotional story has a great record at the box office! Also Ash’s comeback movie, Jazbaa, fared to do well, so there’s there…
Verdict: An average grosser at best!

Rishi Kapoor is known as one of the legends of Bollywood who was responsible for making Bollywood what it is today. As the entire nation is coming to grips with the sudden demise of Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor’s untimely demise is a heavy blow to the movie industry as well as the nation. Fans and celebrities are still in shock from the news of Rishi Kapoor’s demise and it will surely take a while for the news to sink in.

Rishi Kapoor hails from a clan who made its mark in Bollywood beginning with his father Raj Kapoor, who is revered as one of India’s most greatest and influential actors and filmmakers. Rishi Kapoor is the second generation Kapoor to make his mark in the movie industry. Rishi won a National Award for his debut role as a child artist in Mera Naam Joker (1970,) a movie which starred his father Raj Kapoor.

Irrfan Khan- An Ode To The Gentleman Actor
Irrfan Khan is one of Bollywood’s finest actors whose career spanned almost three decades. Irrfan Khan brought multiple accolades to India and Indian cinema throughout his career by acting in Indian, British and Hollywood movies. The Angrezi Medium actor, sadly passed away in Mumbai owing to a sudden colon infection. Khan recently battled with a neuroendocrine tumour and has announced his success against beating the cancer.
Irrfan Khan is known for his offbeat and slice of life movies which make the viewers deeply reflect on life and philosophy. Having made his debut with the Academy Award nominated movie Salaam Bombay! (1988,) Irrfan rose to prominence with his wide variety of roles he essayed throughout his career. However, Irrfan Khan’s talent gained recognition with his portrayal of Paan Singh Tomar (2011) in the biopic movie of the same name. Khan won the National Film Award for the best actor for his performance in Paan Singh Tomar.
Over the course of his career Irrfan Khan appeared in several Hollywood films like The Warrior (2001,) The Namesake (2006,) The Darjeeling Limited (2007,) the Academy Award-winning film Slumdog Millionaire (2008,) New York, I Love You (2009,) The Amazing Spider-Man (2012,) Life of Pi (2012,) Jurassic World (2015) and Inferno (2016.)
Some of Irrfan Khan’s best works came late into his career and they include movies like The Lunchbox (2013,) nominated for a BAFTA Award Haider (2014,) Gunday (2014,) Piku (2015) and Talvar (2015) and the critically acclaimed Hindi Medium (2017) which went on to become one of the biggest grossing movies of Bollywood before Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with cancer in 2018.
Irrfan Khan’s last movie was the recently released Angrezi Medium which hit the theaters earlier this year. With the untimely and unfortunate demise of one of India’s finest actors, Irrfan Khan will leave a huge void in Indian cinema but there is no doubt that Irrfan Khan immortalized himself on the silver screens. Indian Cinema will miss the maverick actor of modern Bollywood classics.
Nishabdham Trailer – Madhavan Starrer Promises An Intense Thriller
Nishabdham is an upcoming multilingual movie which stars Anushka Shetty and Madhavan in the lead roles. Directed by Hemant Madhukar, this film is jointly produced by T.G. Vishwa Prasad, Vivek Kuchibhotla and Kona Venkat.
The trailer begins with an intense and ominous shot in the basement of a house in the U.S., showing a dead body and a terrified Sakshi (Anushka Shetty) turning towards the camera. The next shot shows a news anchor outside the house which is being referred to as a haunted house. A visibly injured Sakshi is seen in a hospital bed trying to convince Maha (Anjali,) a cop that it was a ghost who committed the murder. Maha believes it is Sakshi’s best friend Sonali (Shalini Pandey) who committed the crimes but it turns out she is already deceased and cremated. The plot of the movie can be deduced from the rest of the trailer. Nishadham will be a movie where Sakshi and Maha race against time to connect the dots and uncover the killer.
Watch the trailer here:
Madhavan will be seen in an upcoming bilingual movie Rocketry: The Nambi Effect in which he will star alongside Simran Bagga. The movie is based on the life of Nambi Narayan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer of the Indian Space Research Organisation who was accused of espionage.
Nishabdham stars Anushka as a mute artist and Madhavan as a musician in the lead roles while Hollywood’s Michael Madsen, Anjali, Subbaraju, Shalini Pandey and Srinivas Avasarala will appear in supporting roles. Nishabdham is slated for a release worldwide, on April 2nd, 2020.
