Akshay Kumar’s Suryavanshi, Ranveer Singh’s 4, Varun Dhawan’s Coolie no. One and Salman Khan had high hopes for other films including Radhe. Apart from this, there were films like John Abraham, Imran Hashmi and Sunil Shetty’s Mumbai Saga, John’s Satyamev Jayatan Two, Ajay Devgn’s Bhuj: The Pride of India and Maidan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s Brahmastra, Aamir Khan’s Lal Singchaddi.

Unfortunately, after Tiger Shroff’s Rebellion 2, no film managed to make much money at the box office. Theaters then closed from mid-March to October. Even after the theaters opened, there was no significant difference. Meanwhile, films like Manoj Bajpayee and Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari, Kiara Advani’s Indu Ki Jawani and Riya Chatha’s Shakila were released but did not get much response at the box office.

Instead, people opted for OTT, a platform that includes Amitabh and Ayushman Khuranani, Gulabo Sitabo, Akshay Kumar’s Lakshmi and Varan Dhawan’s Coolie Number One, which didspecial
not get aresponse. Business will not move forward. Or what if viewers choose to watch movies at home?
