This year, Bollywood and Kollywood took the lead over Tollywood (Telugu film industry). It is widely known that Tollywood has shown its stamina at the Indian Cinema level in recent years with big hits like Baahubali Series and RRR. But this year, 2023, Bollywood made a comeback with continuous blockbusters.
Kollywood and the Tamil film industry also rose this year, and these two industries have dominated Tollywood. The Top 5 films of this year are Jawan, Pathaan, Gadar 2, Jailer and Leo. Kollywood has also surpassed Tollywood in 500 grossers.
Bollywood has 3, and Kollywood has two films in the Top 5 list, and there is no single film in Tollywood or a Telugu star film. The latest Bollywood Film, Salman Khan’s Tiger 3, can enter the top five films list.
Also, Ranbir Kapoor and Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal, which is coming on 1st December, has a bright chance of posting solid numbers at the box office.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki arrives on December 22nd, and most probably, it will make it into the Top 3 list. Tollywood has only one film, Salaar, which has a chance to enter the list of Top 5 movies of this year.
For Bollywood and Kollywood, this year has been a blockbuster year. The Hindi films witnessed the 1000Cr mark, and from Kollywood, both Leo and Jailer’s Tamil versions alone collected 500Cr Gross. In contrast, the Telugu version’s highest number is just over 200Cr, which is the closing collection of Waltair Veerayya.
