Bollywood has suffered huge losses at the box office in 2020. The pandemic hit the industry very hard and it will be quite a task recovering from the losses in 2021. But even before the pandemic, Hindi film industry has been criticised badly for not making enough films for masses.
It has been often said that Bollywood filmmakers are only concerned about a few big cities and make cinema for them. The stress on entertaining the masses has been less in past some years because there are very few big films which have been made by the producers. And also among those very few films, quite a handful were good enough.
But that’s not true now. Filmmakers seem to have worked on the criticism well during the lockdown. Because in the past few months a series of big films have been announced. Not just these big announcements have brought the smile back on the faces of distributors and exhibitors but also on the faces of fans who have been waiting to see larger than life cinemas.
While earlier big films were made only with big stars and superstars; best thing this time is that even young stars are promising big-screen entertainment. Let’s have a look at some of the big films which have been announced lately are all set to take revenge of 2020.
1) Heropanti 2
Tiger Shroff’s debut film Heropanti was a hit at the box office. The film established him as the new action hero of the industry. The actor strengthened that image pretty well with more action films. Now he is coming back with the sequel to Heropanti.
