Most Awaited Bollywood (Hindi) Movies of 2016.

Year 2015 had been a disappointing to average year at box office. Around 200 films released this year of which only 20 films can boast of being plus at box office. Success ratio is very low but that has been the case for Bollywood Movies in recent years. Although out of 200 films only 50-60 are significant ones and rest can be touted as washout from first show itself. 

Now coming to 2016 it will be significant year as all leading stars have atleast one film to release this year. Definitely it will be clash of titans. Salman Khan enjoyed the Highest Grosser of 2015 with Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Can he again enjoy that status or Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan or others have a different idea. We will get to know by the end of the year.

So, here is our 35 movies which is set to release before the end of the year and whose buzz is good to excellent. Predicting box office figures is highly difficult as most of those first look is hardly seen. Still we have given a trade estimation. There is no doubt that out of those few biggies will falter badly and there will be few surprise Hits from nowhere. Who knows that film may not be in the list at all.

Hello! Like to say something or having a query regarding the post. Then use the comment section below. Thanks!



  1. Very good prediction ..... I totally support you.....

    1. Fake prediction.... Only fan raees will rule

    2. Mere ko kyon reply kar raha hai bhai......

      Also Your Dilwale....2000 crs ......have ruled.....still laughing over the joke.....

      Fan/Raees wold be good or not ...only time will tell after it's release......

      500cr/Oscars....only baseless batein hain .....hope u understand

  2. Sultan will surely be highest grosser by a distance...
    Accurate prediction.

    1. Sultan crap masala film...raees classic film...content is only king... Raees will destroy multan

    2. Sally old man career finish.... Raees bhai back with content classic film....w

    3. when did saruk make content films is that chaddi express, bad new year, raavan, bina dimaagwalee, no shanti no

    4. I agree on SRK being in a dud phase, as you listed out the above films... But I'm Shanti I'm was a good entertainer... And Raees involves National Award winning director Rahul Dholakia, Nawaz in best phase of his commercial career, and has even roped in Pakistani actress Mahira Khan! Trailer and Shahrukh's avatar only up the antenna by a huge margin, so counting on the film...

  3. In my opinion if there is clash be raees and Sultan.....then there is no chance of Sultan to be the highest grosser.... And if the clash doesn't happen then looking at the current situation Sally is currently the no 1 star and Sultan can go all d way but I personally feel 4-5 films are in queue to go all d way....all depends on content....movie which get excellent response from audience and critics will b the highest grosser for sure......it can b raees or shivaay or mohenjo daaro or dangal or Sultan....these 5 will b the dark horses....my personal favorite is raees and hopeful that it defies all odds to b the highest grosser as I'm a set fan:)

  4. 1st mohen jodaro...2nd shivaay..wrong prediction

  5. Fan Oscar for srk...Atbb....raees 500 cr in India.... Srk back in content film....classic film fan raees....

  6. Eagerly waiting for fan raees....

  7. Dear admin u underestimate the fan and raees.... Fan raees content film....srk biggest stars n these days content also king....so plzz update fan raees prediction.... 2016 belong to only srk....srk back in content based film...I m dying to watch fan raees....

  8. addatoday
    kyon joke maar rahe ho

    Raees 200 cr

    i think Raees
    lifetime 90-110 cr

    1. Sultan to 2 cr bhi cross nhi kar payega....

  9. #kamalesh

    Dilwale 1000 cr

    lifetime 147 cr


    Raees 500 cr



    verdict-sureshot Disaster


    1. If Dilwale flop...then prdp jay ho big disaster

  10. i think

    surprise Disaster

    because lifetime
    43.09 cr

  11. Don't know Khan what to do but akki definitely give profit to distributor.. Nd also good combination of film... No 100 crore I but you never will be bour.. That's sure

  12. raees top 2016 .. All time blockbuster

  13. Dilwale is a entertainer movie......one time watchable.....india verdict Hit......overseas verdict ATBB

  14. Haters r born to see srk success

  15. Fastest 2000 cr India.... Srk rocksss

  16. 2nd Richaest actor of world....where is yr fav bhojpuri old man?

  17. Before jay ho...u r saying 300 cr India... But result... Flopp jay ho

  18. Before prdp...u r barking 400 cr in India..... Now 200 cr....after manipulate.... 4 day extend weekend more screen still can't break hny opening n weekend records... Only srk rule

  19. haklu fans ka haklana suru avise ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

  20. Everyone is underestimating Raess. a perfect masala entertainer and after a long time SRK is doing a Don like role. Its eid time and no doubt it will cross 200Cr. Only issue is clash with Sultan. Hope that won't happen and still anyway both films will get above 200Cr.

  21. I think fan will do well, Raees and Sultan makers should change their date otherwise loss for both which happened on this Christmas. If solo realese both films will surely cross 250 crores.

  22. Only Amir khans Dangal will cross 200 crores

  23. Very good prediction Ankur. I am waiting for mohenjo daro and ae dil hai mushkil

  24. Good prediction but I think mohenjodaro or dangal will be highest grosser because raees and sultan are going to clash

  25. If sultan is competing against raees and dangal is a solo release how can sultan beat dangal? in case dangal is competing with bahubali 2 why bahubali is not in the list?

  26. Hello Dear Ankur Your prediction is correct but one thing is change my way Fan movie Crosses 200 Crores because SRK Best Acting in this movie so my prediction in this movie Fan minimum 210 Crores in India Because SRK Hearttouching acting in this movie so this is my prediction.

  27. really waiting for housefull3 and rustom

  28. DEAR addatoday
    Befikre prediction please.

  29. Airlift has already exceeded predictions while mastizade & kkhh3 performed way below to predictions. So, admin u need to realize that finally people r going for movies with better content. Great grand masti will also go down in same way. While u need to change prediction for movies like rustom

  30. All Bollywood movies suck specially Amir khan and shah rukh khan dilwale suck chennai express shit movie PK is copy of forest gump

  31. Me thinks there'll be fierce competition for the top spot:Rares, Sultan, Mohenjo Daro, Dangal and, yeah, Fan... I feel it's quite underrated by all predictions... Trailer recently released and promises a glorious mixture of Humor, joy, obsession and intensity..Rates being directed by National Award winning director Rahul Dholakia and will be an edge of the seat thriller... Personally, I'm lookin' out for Mohenjo Daro, whose content may prove extraordinary, as also of Dangal... Every one's up for Sultan so i needn't say much 'bout it...

  32. reas ki sultan se clash shorro me sochtaa hoon agar reas ki bifikre k saath clash ho geya to Jaise bajirao mastani k Samne dilwAle ka huya... usse b badtar ho jayega bache
