Default Bollywood Lost 2500 Crores Business in 2020

We are heading into lockdown 4 which is likely to bring in ease and some restrictions. One thing that movie lovers are hoping for once the govt. gives the go-ahead is to head to their nearest theatres, grab their popcorn, and watch their favourite stars. However, that seems quite unlikely considering the condition we are in, even if the lockdown is eased, cinemas would the last thing on the government's mind.

Coolie No. 1 clearly stands out as one of the most awaited films of 2020. It was slated to release in April. A comedy-caper, directed by David Dhawan and produced by Jackky Bhagnani, Vashu Bhagnani, and Deepshikha Deshmukh, this Varun Dhawan-Sara Ali Khan starrer is a remake of the 1995 classic. Every look of the film has had audiences wanting more. Given the past successes of the director-producer duo of David Dhawan and Vashu Bhagnani, this film has trade pundits predicting a 'blockbuster' at the Box Office.

The film stars Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev and a huge ensemble of actors as the victorious team members. The film which was originally slated for an April 2020 release is waiting for a post lockdown release and given the love that cricket enjoys in the country, it is likely to be a winner at the Box Office.
