The success of Baaghi 2 has not only given Bollywood its youngest Superstar in Tiger Shroff, but the phenomenal box office trend has also proved the triumph of entertaining content.
Over the years, Bollywood has been dominated by renowned production houses with Yash Raj Films, Dharma Productions and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment leading the industry. While Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions have been experimenting with content and struggling to set cash registers ringing, it is the expertise of Sajid Nadiadwala that has him ruling the box office game in both multiplexes and single screens with a slew of successful films to his credit.
The Blockbuster success of Baaghi 2 has been a game changer and sets off a shocking alarm for production houses like Yash Raj Films, Dharma Productions and other biggies in the market.
Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment rules the roaster, with the one of the best success rates setting a precedent that YRF and Dharma Productions should follow. Here’s why:
Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment – Sajid Nadiadwala for long time has been the dark horse of the industry, having giving only 2 duds in last five years and given successful films like 2 States, Heropanti, Kick, Baaghi, Housefull franchise, Dishoom, Judwaa 2 and more recently Baaghi 2. Not only did Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment set the cash registers ringing with their films, the production house also proved to launch and boost many careers of B’town stars.
Karan Johar led Dharma Productions has had its fair share of hits and misses at the cash counter. Having given some not-so-box-office-friendly films like Gori Tere Pyaar Main, Ungli, Brothers, Shandaar, Baar Baar Dekho, OK Jaanu and Ittefaq. The films, not only tanked at the box office but also proved to be a setback for many promising careers.
Yash Raj Films:
Aditya Chopra led YRF has also had a very tough time at the box office with films like Aurangzeb, Bewakoofiyaan, Daawat-e-Ishq, Kill Dil, Detective Byomkesh Bakshi, Fan, Befikre, Meri Pyaari Bindu and Qaidi Band marking a dull trend. It is safe to say that they have not been able to deliver hit without a Khan in their films in the recent past.
Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment pioneers to be the go-to production house for Gen next stars, proving to be a hit machine at the box office. Here’s the trend:
– It was Sajid Nadiadwala who launched Tiger Shroff with Heropanti and has been a huge contributor to the star who once was not seen as a serious contender.
– Compared to this, YRF has not been able to add much to their talent. While on one hand Ranveer Singh had his major successes outside the banner, Anushka Sharma had to start her own production house for working on good content films. Arjun Kapoor too had to look outside for hits like 2 States and Mubarakaan.
– In fact, Sajid has produced biggest grossing films of Tiger (Baaghi 2), Varun (Judwaa 2) and Arjun Kapoor (2 States)
– While, Dharma Productions launched Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan with Student of The Year, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment has boosted their careers with films like 2 States, Dishoom and Judwaa 2.
The above comparatives state that not only is Sajid Nadiadwala the biggest Producer in the business today, but the production house has also been instrumental in giving Bollywood some of its most promising future Superstars. With the high success quotient, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment rightly gauges the pulse of the masses and celebrates cinema with entertaining content films, a trend that should be fast caught on by other Production machineries.
