In bollywood sometimes even the most versatile and veteran directors, superstar actors and earth-shattering budgets are not able to save a film. Despite a hit trailers, the fate of a film at the box office shows how every penny spent can be flushed down the drains on a Friday!
Shandaar – Shandaar was one of the most awaited movies of 2015, made at a budget of 75 crores. Shahid and Aalia starrer Shandaar just took a day to fall despite a fresh pairing, luxurious sets and superhit songs.
Bombay Velvet – Bombay Velvet has become a scar in the career of director Anurag Kashyap. Cinefans rejected the film so brutally that the 125-crore film had a loss of 100 crores. Many call it the biggest flop in the history of Bollywood. Even actors Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma would prefer to disown this disaster.
Kites – Rakesh Roshan directed Kites worth Rs 150 crores had a cliched script. A superstar son, a Mexican hottie and a melodic album, but none could save the film.
