A great closing quarter for Bollywood, industry may end up earning Rs 750 crore by March 31


The last fortnight saw a very cold response at the box office but Bollywood is set to end the fiscal with startling numbers.

“The year 2018 is turning out to be one of the best for Hindi film industry in recent times. With first quarter of the new fiscal still a couple of weeks away, we already have a Rs 300 crore club film in Padmaavat and on our way to have the first Rs 100 crore film in Sonu ke Titu ki Sweety,”said film trade analyst Atul Mohan.

“Before March comes to end, we should get good numbers from Hichki and Baaghi2. Industry should be able to make Rs 750 crore in the first three months of 2018 and that will make to 25% of what we earned in 2017. In a nutshell, if we continue like this, then 2018 may turn out to be a golden year for us,” added Mohan.

With a combination of good music, content and star cast, Hichki and Baaghi2 are expected to bring in cheer to the box office and shoot up the total collection of the last quarter of 2017-2018 in order to touch the Rs 750 crore mark.
