Box Office Hits of Bollywood in 2011

The real popularity of a film can only be judged by it’s performance at box office. The revenue it generates from cinemas and other outlets such as DVD selling and so on.  We are approaching the end of this year. Hence, most of the films have been released including blockbusters. Some films smashed box office records.  Once again, established stars, namely Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan proved their marketability in Bollywood film industry with the huge success of their films at box office. I would say, Salman Khan – with his blockbuster films released this year – have become ever closer to be the superstar, perhaps at the same level as Shahrukh Khan.

Anticipated hit Bollywood movies in 2012

We are already in October of 2011. 2012 is fast approaching and a lot of Bollywood fans might be wondering about what lies ahead as far as hit Bollywood movies in 2012 are concerned. We can sense the scenarios and possibilities looking at the titles, actors, directors and plots of the films.

Looking at the line up for 2012 so far, I can say that the year 2012 looks brighter and more promising for the Hindi film industry or Bollywood. Why? It is because of a number of reasons:

The number of successful sequels that are scheduled to be released in 2012; actually 9 of them so far. Interesting isn’t it? These include Krrish 2, Housefull 2, Hya Kool Hai Hum 2, Jannat 2, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai 2, Raaz 3, Race 2, Dhoom 3, Partner 2 and Dostana 2.

Actors invloved in some of the scheduled films include superstars like Shah Shahrukh Khan, Amir Khan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Rosha, Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar. Actresses involved include established super stars such as Priyanka Chopra, Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Karishma Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Rani Mukherji and rising Bollywood beauties such as Genilia D’Souza, Asin, Sonakshi Sinha and teen sensation Anushka Sharma. The Sri Lanka beauty queen Jacqueline Fernandez who debuted in Aladin (2010) and won  Internatiojal Indian FIlm Academy Award and Stardust Award for Best Female Debut in 2010 will be acting alongside Emraan Hashmi in Raaz 3. That could be be a quite blood-rushing romance.

Some of the films are directed by leading directors such as Yash Chopra (Number 1), Karan Johar (Student of The Year), Vikram Bhatt (Raaz 3 and dangerous Ishq), Abbas-Mustan (Race 2) and Anurag Basu (Barfee).
