Most Awaited Bollywood (Hindi) Movies of 2017

After the super successful article last year on Most Awaited Bollywood Movies of 2016, we are back again with the Most Awaited Bollywood Movies of 2017. It is highly difficult to predict the box office business of films which first look is yet to release. Generally it is easy to express the prediction once, film promos are out. 

Still we have included 27 films for this year which are highly anticipated. We are actually predicting what box office trade expects from each films. 

We have not included Crack one of the most anticipated films of the year as it is postponed now for time being. We have included Sanjay Dutt Biopic, which is directed by Rajkumar Hirani and planning to release it this Christmas. However release of the film at that time of year looks highly improbable for various logistical issues. We will put that up in a detailed separate post.

Also, on popular demand we have included much awaited Bahubali 2 and 2.0 box office prediction for Hindi version only, as both these films should rock box office this year for specific reasons.

Time to time we will update on each films closer to box office release in separate posts. Stay tuned to our site in coming days.

Now into Top 10 Most Awaited Films...


10. Jagga Jasoos. Jagga Jasoos is in news for all the wrong reasons and it is been years. However finally film first look and promos are out. Ranbir Kapoor is returning to big screen after success of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and this time he is pairing with his ex-flame Katrina Kaif.


Starcast - Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Govinda
Director - Anurag Basu
Producer - Siddharth Roy Kapur
Release Date - 7 April, 2017
BO Prediction - 100-125 crore nett


9. Kaabil. It is a thriller with love story as backdrop. Film is Hrithik Roshan next after debacle of Mohenjo Daro and he is eager to strike back big. However issue is film is releasing alongside another biggie in Raees and its box office business will be highly affected. 


Starcast - Hrithik Roshan, Yami Gautam
Director - Sanjay Gupta
Producer - Rakesh Roshan
Release Date - 25 January, 2017
BO Prediction - 110-125 crore nett

8. Padmavati. Makers of Bajirao Mastani are back. Sanjay Leela Bhansali as director. Deepika Padukone back to Bollywood. Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor add their star power to the film.


Starcast - Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor
Director - Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Producer - Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Release Date - 17 November, 2017
BO Prediction - 125-140 crore nett


7. Raees. Raees is an out and out commerical potboiler which Indian movie lovers are eagerly awaiting. However issue is film is clashing with another biggie in Kaabil and hence, box office business will be affected. However still Shah Rukh Khan stars in it and will ensure a big start at box office. 


Starcast - Shah Rukh Khan, Mahira Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui
Director - Rahul Dholakia
Producer - Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Gauri Khan
Release Date - 25 January, 2017
BO Prediction - 130-150 crore nett

6. 2.0 (Hindi). No doubt Rajinikanth is the biggest star in South India. But Hindi version will be driven largely by two factors. Akshay Kumar star power and curiosity as film is sequel to Robot. This is Akshay Kumar biggest chance to break Rowdy Rathore highest grossing record. 2.0 alongside Bahubali 2 will be aiming to be the highest grossing film ever in India when all version business are taken into account.


Starcast - Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson
Director - S Shankar
Release Date - Diwali, 2017
BO Prediction - 150-175 crore nett


5. The Ring. Shah Rukh Khan biggest bet of the year. Anushka Sharma as box office force nowadays. Good release period. Only issue is Imtiaz Ali, who hardly makes Pan India films. Still trade has high hopes from The Ring and hopefully it rocks box office.


Starcast - Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma
Director - Imtiaz Ali
Producer - Gauri Khan
Release Date - 11 August, 2017
BO Prediction - 150-175 crore nett

4. Sanjay Dutt Biopic. Biopic on most controversial yet highly lovable, our own 'Munna' Sanjay Dutt. Directed by none other than Rajkumar Hirani, biggest director of our times. Makers planning to release in Christmas this year. If gets solo release (somehow Tiger Zinda Hai is postponed) will be a force to reckon with. However if gets released alongside TZH, will be affected badly because of screen issue.

Starcast - Ranbir Kapoor
Director - Rajkumar Hirani
Release Date - 22 December, 2017
BO Prediction - 175-200 crore nett [If clash happens with Tiger Zinda Hai then 75-125 crore nett]

3. Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi). Why Kattappa killed Baahubali? This question itself will fetch 100 crore at box office. Many in trade expecting Hindi version of the film to touch or cross 200 crore mark. Never happened before. All Version business should be all time highest ever in India.

Starcast - Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, 
Director - S.S. Rajamouli
Release Date - 14 April, 2017
BO Prediction - 200-225 crore nett

2. Tiger Zinda Hai. Sequel to much popular Ek Tha Tiger. Makers of Sultan back again. Salman Khan starrer film. Christmas release. 300 crore is ON again. Only issue is Sanjay Dutt Biopic. If that film releases alongside TZH, then will have big impact on TZH for sure. One more thing if TZH gets solo release it will shatter all opening records and might set some highly unthinkable opening benchmark.

Starcast - Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif
Director - Ali Abbas Zafar
Producer - Aditya Chopra
Release Date - 22 December, 2017
BO Prediction - 250-300 crore nett [If clash happens with Sanjay Dutt Biopic then 200-225 crore nett]

1. Tubelight. It is a Salman Khan starrer film directed by Kabir Khan after super success of Bajrangi Bhaijaan and is releasing on EID 2017. Anything more to be said? Tubelight is easily the no.1 most awaited film of the year. Many in trade touting it to challenge Dangal box office record. It is tough, but definitely not impossible.
Starcast - Salman Khan, Zhu Zhu
Director - Kabir Khan
Producer - Salman Khan
Release Date - 23 June, 2017
BO Prediction - 300-325 crore nett

  8. If bahubali content matches with the first installment that I'm getting a gut feeling that it will challenge tubelight for sure. It is luking like another blockbuster year for Salman. But my bet is definitely on bahubali 2.chances are bright for tubelight but don't count out bahubali

    ReplyDelete
  9. Badshaho and jagga jasoos will interchange their position. And yes 2.O is trio combo of RAJNI-AKSHAY DIRECT ED BY BEST DIRECTOR OF INDIA NONE OTHER THAN SHANKAR RELEASING ON DIWALI ALL RECORDS will be in DANGER.And PADMAVATI CAN BEAT RING AND RAEES ANYTIME AND WILL BE IN TOP 5 FOR SURE

  14. SRK's Raees and The Ring combined gross will be less than Dangal's collection...Fan and Dear Zindagi combined gross was less than half of Dangal's collection...lol...SRK, THE GREAT KING OF BOLLYWOOD!!!

  16. Dont know about other films but Bahubali 2 and shankar's 2.0 will break every record of box office. both film will gross over 500 cr in india and above 1000 cr world wide. No other film will come even close to these 2 films this year. so it is acutally race between these two films only.

  17. TUBELIGHT IS A WAR FILM. REMEMBER THE LAST TWO BOLLYWOOD WAR FILMS LOC KARGIL & LAKSHYA. THEY BOTH HAD GREAT STARCAST & DIRECTORS. SO I BELIEVE DANGAL IS PRETTY SAFE UNTILL AAMIR'S NEXT "THUGS OF HINDOSTAN" WHICH IS COMEDY,ACTION & ADVENTURE.

    1. Don't forget dear 'Justice League' is going to be the biggest flick of 2017....If everything goes well, then this movie can do wonders....The movie is shaping up really well....Zack Snyder himself has promised to do away with the drawbacks which were identified by the audience in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'....He had given an exclusive access to the media to the sets of Justice League and the media has appreciated what Snyder has been up to in this latest DCEU movie....I think he means business this time....Anyhow we DC fans are really excited about Wonder Woman and Justice League.....
