Bollywood faced a really rough time in the beginning of this year when big ticket films failed miserably at the box office. In fact, films like Salman Khan’s Tubelight and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal didn’t make any money.
Among big stars, only Akshay Kumar showed some promise whose Jolly LLB 2 and Toilet Ek Prem Katha stood the test of time.
The super success of Golmaal Again will give Bollywood a chance to take a sigh of relief before it goes for another round of big films with Padmavati and Tiger Zinda Hai in December.
Here are 2017’s biggest hits...
Golmaal Again: Rs 167 crore
Judwaa 2: Rs 138 crore
Raees: Rs 137.5 crore
