The Contenders who will Gun for Highest Grossing Movie of 2020

We are into the end of February 2020 and it is almost the best time to have a look at the contenders who will gun for the coveted prize 'Highest Grossing Movie of 2020'.

Tanhaji has already left its mark and will give a good fight to the rest of the films for this coveted title. Still, we think that Tanhaji is 20-30 crores at least short to put up a serious challenge to the rest. Still, it can't be ruled out as 280 crore net in India is not a joke.

Which are the movies that may emerge as the highest-grossing movie of the year (HGOTY)?

The contenders

7. Prithviraj - A YRF and Akshay Kumar collaboration and releasing in the festive time of Diwali. A magnum opus period drama from one of the biggest production houses in India. Akshay Kumar at the top of his game. Considering all these factors, Prithiviraj looks a sure shot success at the box office. Prithviraj is set to be a huge grosser unless something hugely wrong happens with the film. Prithiviraj will be easily one of the contenders for HGOTY.

Box Office Expectation - 200-250 crore NBOC

6. Radhe - Radhe makes the return of Salman Khan to his favorite action avatar. Yes, Dabangg 3 failed to meet the box office expectation. Yes, Salman's last few films have failed to keep up to the colossal expectation of his fans. But there is no denying that if Radhe strikes gold and carries positive momentum then it will be pandemonium in theaters and film will easily challenge for the HGOTY. Chances are less this time but no one can underestimate the star power of Salman Khan and that also in the festive time of Eid. Radhe is our dark horse for the year.

Box Office Expectation - 200-250 crore NBOC


5. Brahmastra - Brahmastra trilogy is in news for the longest time. It is the costliest film ever made in Bollywood to date. It is a dream project from Dharma house which is again one of the biggest production houses in India. Ayan Mukerji has given his heart and soul for the film. A superhero project. Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will share onscreen for the very first time. Everything is going great for the film. If the film is liked by audiences then the sky is the limit for it. If Brahamastra rides on a positive audience report, then 300 crore net will be a cakewalk. There is simply no midway for this film.

Box Office Expectation - 225-275 crore NBOC

4. Sooryavanshi - Sooryavanshi is the Akshay Kumar's best bet for the HGOTY. He is back to playing a cop. Sooryavanshi is an out and out action film and that is directed by blockbuster king Rohit Shetty. It belongs to the cop universe which also features Singham and Simmba. If Simmba can collect 240 crore net in India, just imagine the potential of Sooryavanshi. Akshay Kumar has never had an HGOTY in his whole career and Sooryvanshi might achieve that feat. Also, Sooryavanshi may take Akshay into the 300 crore club. If Sooryavanshi ticks all the boxes then the sky is the limit for the film.

Box Office Expectation - 250-300 crore NBOC

3. Tanhaji - Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is already released in theaters and is all set to do 279-280 crore net business in India. 

2. 83 - 83 is a very special film and is based on India winning the cricket world cup in 1983. The film stars Ranveer Singh in the pivotal role of cricket legend Kapil Dev. Kabir Khan is the director of the film and he has already delivered two HGOTY in Ek Tha Tiger (2012) and Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015). If 83 is liked by audiences then this film can create history. It looks a sure shot 300 crore film in making. Ranveer Singh stardom is on the rise and 83 can take his stardom to the next level.

Box Office Expectation - 275-325 crore NBOC

and the top contender is,

1. Laal Singh Chaddha - Aamir Khan has opened 100 crore, 200 crore and 300 crore club. Don't be surprised if Laal Singh Chaddha creates history and opens 400 crore club. He is the pioneer for all the clubs and the story might remain the same again. Aamir Khan will be seen on the big screen after a long 2-year break. Laal Singh Chaddha is an official remake of Hollywood classic Forest Gump and if it is 70-80% close to that film then all box office records will be broken for sure. Plus, the film is coming in the coveted Christmas period and that also solo. No doubt all box office records are in danger.

Box Office Expectation - 300-400 crore NBOC

These above mentioned seven films namely Laal Singh Chaddha, 83Tanhaji, Sooryavanshi, Brahmastra, Radhe and Prithiviraj are the contenders for the HGOTY.

  1. Guys if brahmashtra is the costliest film ever made how can it be the HGOTY with 250 275 crore?
    This article was a chance of thinking outside the box
    Predictions should have been bold and brave not on the fence

  2. So according to you salman's same film with different title Radhe despite clashing with Laxmi bomb will earn 250 cr but laxmi bomb is not contender as per your view
    It seems you have forgotten mini clash of dabangg 3 vs good newwz which happened 2 months back

    1. Very true. Laxmi Bomb is definitely a dark horse not Radhe! If Laxmi bomb matches expectations, then Radhe will be doomed.

  3. Also add Shamshera starring Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt releasing on Bakri id 2020. This movie can also do 250 crores

  5. Sooryavanshi has most brightest chances.
    Brahmastra, is again and delayed project ehich makes it less attractive commercially.
    Radhe will certainly not cross 150 Cr.
    Lal Singh Chadha, if is remake of Forest Gump will be 200 cr but another 100-200 cr will be added bcoz of Aamir khan and his long gap.

  6. Seriously over estimating 83. I think the max it can do will be 200 cr.
    As for Laal Singh Chadda, again hopefully it crosses 250 cr. Forrest Gump was a wonderful movie but if the film is remade in the exact same manner, it will underperform for sure. But still hopeful.

    The genuine HOGGTY is definitely Sooryavanshi.

  10. Shahrukh is already out of list. Aamir and Salman have not given any genuine hit in last two years. The way things are going this year may close the career of khans as A list stars.
