Every Friday, many Bollywood films compete at the box office for a chance at entertaining the audience. These following films created all the right buzz before its release but somehow their fate was the complete opposite after it hit the theaters. Here is a list of 5 movies that became the biggest flops of 2017.
It was one of the highly anticipated films of 2017. Also, the film marked the first time that Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kappor shared screen space. Considering the fact that Shahid dated Kareena Kapoor in the past, who is now happily married to Saif Ali Khan. The film had an interesting storyline and Kangana Ranaut playing the love interest. But somehow, it failed to create a connection with the audience who felt that director Vishal Bharadwaj tried to pack in too much stuff in the movie.
The third in the series, Sarkar 3 had set characters and actors in the film. But the classic RGV touch was missing and the film failed in creating the magic of the first film in the franchise – Sarkar. Even seasoned actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff and Manoj Bajpayee couldn’t save this film from meeting an ill-fate at the box office.
Chetan Bhagat’s recent novel Half Girlfriend was made into a movie hoping to recreate the magic of 2 States. But the chemistry between the lead, Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha kapoor was lackluster and the the plot was cliched to say the least.
Every Salman Khan film is eagerly awaited, period. This film too had created much buzz while it was still under shooting. And why not? The pairing of Salman with Kabir Khan had given hits like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger. But this time, unfortunately, the story based on the 1962 Sino-India war with Salman playing a non-violent and soft-hearted character did not go down well with his fans who prefer his macho and Dabangg image better.
Jab Harry Met Sejal
The combination of an Imtiaz Ali film starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma was expected to break box office records. Instead, it broke the hearts of the fans with having to watch a 50 something actor romance an actress half his age.
