This year has seen the resurgence of Akshay Kumar at the box office with the hat-trick of Rs 100 crores hits and saw a rare roadblock in the career of Shah Rukh Khan with a disappointment in Fan, which couldn’t even reach Rs 100 crores.
As reported earlier Akshay Kumar has created a new record in 2016 which even Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan couldn’t break, but looks like the record’s not for long to stay. Bollywood records are meant to be broken, and after a few lackadaisical years, Shah Rukh Khan might bounce back and reclaim his lost throne in this game.
Fans are hopeful that SRK will break a few records on the way too and one such record is Akshay Kumar’s Rs 100 crores hat-trick in a single year. SRK’s is going to have three releases next year in a single year for the first time in last decade.
SRK in 2004 had four of his movies released in a single year with much delayed disaster Yeh Lamhe Judaai Ke, a hit in Main Hoon Na, a super hit in the form of Veer-Zaara and critically acclaimed but commercial failure Swades.
In 2017 Raees will be released on the Republic Day weekend, Imtiaz Ali’s The Ring on Independence Day weekend and Anand L Rai’s dwarf movie during Christmas weekend. Raees which was supposed to release on Eid 2016 was postponed to 2017, a film most talked about in recent years. Shah Rukh Khan has already commenced shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s next alongside Anushka Sharma in Prague and he’ll be starting Anand L Rai’s next by the end of this year. – CINEWS
