Ah, the charm of movies that rake in the big bucks! We often chatter about a film that has “looted a hundred crores,” using its earnings as a yardstick of success. The question, “How many crores has it collected?” is always buzzing around, and the higher the number, the grander the success. Every film industry abides by this unwritten rule. While many movies are celebrated as hits, few attain landmark collections. Now, let’s peek at the films expected to charm the box office and potentially gather more than Rs. 500 crores this year.
What do you get when you bring together Shah Rukh Khan, Vijay Sethupathi, Deepika Padukone, Nayanthara, and director Atlee? A cinematic delight named “JAWAN.” Scheduled for release on September 7, the buzz is already tangible, especially with Shah Rukh Khan’s captivating bald look. Available in multiple languages, trade experts are wagering on a hefty collection exceeding Rs. 500 crores.
The much-talked-about “Salaar” with Prabhas promises to be a blockbuster. Directed by the acclaimed Prashanth Neel, this movie has caught everyone’s eye. Intense anticipation, link to the KGF series, and heavy investment by Hombale Film are just some factors driving expectations. Slated for release on September 28, the Rs. 500-crore collection mark seems well within reach.
Coming from the maker of ‘Vikram’, ‘Leo’ features Thalapathy Vijay, with Lokesh Kanagaraj at the helm. Set to launch on October 18, the pre-release buzz is tremendous, and an appearance by Kamal Haasan only adds to the intrigue. The Telugu rights alone were secured for Rs. 20 crores, giving a hint of the massive expectations.
Brace yourself for “Animal,” possibly the most intense movie in Ranbir Kapoor’s career. Under the direction of Sandeep Reddy Vanga, this film is garnering huge attention. Initially slated for August 11 but pushed to December 1, the multilingual release is stirring anticipation, with Rashmika Mandanna playing the lead.
Last but certainly not least, “Dunki” is directed by the talented Rajkumar Hirani, who’s gifted us gems like “3 Idiots,” “Munnabhai MBBS,” “PK,” and “Sanju.” Now featuring Shahrukh Khan and Taapsee Pannu in a full comedy, this film, releasing on December 22, is also predicted to gross over Rs. 500 crores.
With a lineup like this, the box office is in for a thrilling shakeup. The applause, the praise, and, of course, the collections – they all await these cinematic marvels. Will they hit the Rs. 500 crore mark? Only time, and perhaps your tickets, will tell!
