We are one month down the road of 2017 and we have already seen two movies doing some good business at the box office. But there is a lot in store for us still as 2017 is just getting started. Presenting the box office prediction report for all the big movies that are yet to release in 2017.
Bollywood Box Office Prediction 2017
On the basis of factors like past record of actors, director, sequel, remakes etc we have made a list of Bollywood movies that are most likely to join 100, 200, 300 crore club in 2017. Let’s have a look.
Bollywood 2017: Most Likely 100 Crore Movies
Hrithik Roshan’s action-drama which was all about a blind man who seeks revenge for his wife’s death was able to do well at the box-office. The film not only earned a good critical acclaim, the movie is likely to join the 100 crore club. Since the movie clashed with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees, the overall business will probably suffer a bit.
David Dhawan will be passing on Salman Khan’s shoes to his son Varun Dhawan in the remake of his 1997 hit film Judwaa. The first look of the movie is already out and the dual role of Prem, Raja seems to suit Varun.
David will be at the helm of the project and this guarantees that we are in for a complete entertainer. Varun, who tries to base his acting on Govinda and Salman’s skills, will probably give these characters his own flavour. Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez will be joining the man as the lead actresses.
Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor will be coming together for the first time in Mohit Suri‘s Half Girlfriend. This movie is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling novel of the same name. The last adaptation on one of his novels 2 States was quite successful and we are expecting this one to surpass the collection of 2 States.
Rohit Shetty will be back with the fourth instalment of his rather successful comedy series Golmaal. With an ensemble cast that consists of Ajay Devgn, Shreyas Talpade, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra and Tabu, the movie will face no issues in crossing the 100 crore mark. If everything goes well, it may even be able to earn more.
The super-hit jodi of Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan are back with the spin-off of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania titled as ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’. Directed by Shashank Khaitan, this movie will be able to attract the attention of the youth, just like the previous part and it will easily make it to the 100 crore club.
Jolly LLB 2:
Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 is a sure shot winner. With Akshay Kumar’s recent form, the movie is expected to take a big opening at the Box Office. If accepted by audience, Jolly LLB 2 have a chance to even cross 150 crores mark
Bollywood 2017: Most Likely 150 Crore Movies
Shah Rukh Khan’s first release of this year, Raees has been doing a good business at the box-office. SRK’s prestige precedes him plus the action-packed drama seems to attract a lot of people into the theaters. The addition of Mahira Khan is one of the hurdles this movie is facing.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has been making news ever since it was announced. The movie features Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. This collaboration between four such big names will definitely be able to earn big.
Initially titled as ‘The Ring’, Imtiaz Ali’s movie featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma will likely be crossing 200 crores very easily. The story will be a romantic drama and the whole movie has been shot at beautiful location around the world. Isn’t this more than enough?
Bollywood 2017: Most Likely 200 Crore Movies
The sequel to Rajinikanth’s Robot will feature the superstar with Akshay Kumar playing the villain. The movie is being made with a budget of 350 crores itself and we are definitely not wrong when we say that this movie will be a member of the 200 crore club. The names of these two superstars are enough to attract half of the junta into the theaters!
The much-awaited sequel to Baahubali will finally be hitting the big screens this year and it will be creating history in every sense. We will finally get to know ‘Katappa ne Baahubali ko kyu maara?’ and the makers of Baahubali 2 will go back homes with much heavier pocktets.
Bollywood 2017: Most Likely 300 Crore Movies
Okay, Salman Khan has a pretty good record when it comes to making big bucks at the box-office. He will be seen in the sequel to Ek Tha Tiger which will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. This sequel will have a different story with a more adrenaline pumping action. I say 300 crores are already in Salman’s pocket!
Lastly, Salman Khan and Kabir Khan’s latest collaboration Tubelight is also a strong contender of the 300 crore club. This movie will mark the debut of Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, so it will definitely attract a lot of Chinese actors too. The story is based on the Indo-China war and it will definitely be a blockbuster.
Some other movies like Baashaho, Jagga Jasoos, Raabta, Aankhen 2, Munna Michael and Mubakara may just turn out to be the sleeper hits of 2017. Akshay Kumar’s movies have always done well while Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Milan Luthria’s last collaboration Once Upon A Time in Mumbai was a hit.
