There were four significant Bollywood films which were released today in the past years at the box office – Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer Bahubali 2, Kangana Ranaut, Emraan Hashmi and Shiney Ahuja starrer Gangster, Horror drama Darna Zaroori Hai and Aishwarya Rai starrer The Mistress Of Spices.
Bahubali 2 – The Conclusion (2017)
KGF 2 14th Day Box Office : Yash Starrer Beats Tiger Zinda Hai And PK To Become 4th Highest Grossing Film Of ALL TIME
Sequel to the smash hit , Bahubali-The Beginning, Bahubali 2-The Conclusion was even more grandeur and more anticipated than the previous version. The question “Why Kattappa Killed Bahubali” raised in the first part created a aura of suspense and was finally answered in the sequel. Bahubali 2 (Hindi) opened to a thundering response with Rs 40.73 crores and collected a record-breaking Rs 510 crores (none of the Bollywood films have reached this milestone till now), becoming the “All-Time Blockbuster”. The budget of Bahubali 2 was Rs 195 crore.
Gangster – A Love Story (2006)
Probably one of the most boldest actresses in Bollywood today, Kangana Ranaut proved her mettle with electrifying performance in her first film, Gangster. Directed by Anurag Basu, Gangster had a soul-stirring music by Pritam and outstanding performances, with Shiney Ahuja making a brilliant debut. Gangster turned out to be “Hit” collecting Rs 12.67 crores against a budget of Rs 6.50 crores.
Darna Zaroori Hai (2006)
RRR 4th Weekend Box Office – Beats The Kashmir Files To Become The Highest Grossing Film Post-Pandemic
Even though the first part, Darna Mana Hai, was received well, the sequel was one most disappointing horror film. Produced by Ram Gopal Varma and featuring actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh and Randeep Hooda, Darna Zaroori Hai was “Flop” at the box office, collecting Rs 6.42 crore against a budget of Rs 8.75 crore.
The Mistress Of Spices(2006)
The first Hollywood production of Aishwarya Rai and directed by Paul Mayeda Berges, with a screenplay by Gurinder Chadha, The Mistress Of Spices was based on a novel Mistress of Spices by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. However, the movie had weak direction and poor screenplay with dismal performances which led to the film tagged as “Disaster” at the box office, collecting just Rs 46 lakhs against a budget of Rs 9 crore.
