We came across numerous big Bollywood releases this year in 2018. Some movies like Sanju, Raazi, Padmaavat and many more have been successful in making a place in our hearts and setting a benchmark for the Indian cinema. However, on the other hand, it seems like the year has not been so great for the 3 Khans of Bollywood.
Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan who have all the popularity in the cinema did not seem to have a fortunate time with their movies this year. We have seen in previous years how our King Khans have always been successful in making their audience go crazy for their movies. But this year, the stars did not enjoy the same stardom for their movies.
Salman Khan’s Race 3
Remo D’Souza’s directed movie Race 3 featured Salman Khan for the first time in its famous franchise. The previous two instalments of the movie had worked well on the big screen but Race 3 could not enjoy the same love from its audience. It seems like Salman Bhai has disappointed his fans with his role in the movie. Bhai’s Race 3 won the popularity but in all the negative terms. Salman also came up with his independently written song named Selfish in the movie which became the medium of laughter and memes for the audience. Even the name and fame could not work for our Bhai this year.
Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan
Casting some of the appreciated personalities of Bollywood, Thugs of Hindostan includes Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif. Trailer of the movie filled the people with extreme levels of excitement and thrill for the movie. However, the movie left its viewers highly unsatisfied. The movie collected a gross amount of 262.80 crores in total, whereas it was made on a budget of Rs. 250 crores. Thug of Hindostan was the biggest FLOP of the year.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero
Like the other Khans of Bollywood, 2018, has similarly turned out to be an unfateful year for the Zero actor Shah Rukh Khan. The movie stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif alongside Shah Rukh. The cast also worked in Jab Tak Hai Jaan and left their fans awestruck with their astonishing performance. However, this time, the pairing did not seem to work well and left the viewers disappointed. Overall, the movie could not work as per the makers’ and viewers’ expectations.
2018 might have been a flop year for our Khans but their fans still believe that they will return in 2019 with a bang. Well, for that, we can just wait and hope for the best.
