Baabubali 2, Tiger Zinda Hai & Golmaal Again make 2017 A Much Better Year Than 2016 – The COMPLETE Bollywood Report

By | December 29, 2017

2017 was a much better year for Bollywood as for the first time ever 3000 crore mark has been surpassed at the Box Office. However, a good chunk of that has come from three major films – Baahubali 2, Tiger Zinda Hai and Golmaal Again which have contributed 1000 crore between them. In fact, if one removes Baahubali 2 from the equation, the overall outcome would be much lesser than 2016.

Still, for theaters there was still something better to cheer about because at the end of the day there were better footfalls in comparison. Let’s look at the comparison between 2016 and 2017 on various dimensions.
