It’s the third month of 2017 and Bollywood has already witnessed four 100 crore films (Raees, Kaabil, Jolly LLB 2 and Badrinath Ki Dulhania). Now, we are not talking about 100 crore films in this article but the movies which can shatter big box office records and become highest grossers of the year with potentially 200-300 crore or even more than that at Indian box office.
We think following movies have that kind of potential:
Baahubali 2: The Conclusion
When the first part changed the whole outlook of Indian cinema and ruled the box office, trade experts were sure that second film will rewrite all the trade rules. Baahubali’s (2015) all version Indian earnings were 500+ crore. Now, it’s been two years and the ticket rates have increased and the buzz for Baahubali 2 is phenomenal. Baahubali 2 can easily collect 150-200 crore for Hindi version and there is no limit to its Tamil-Telugu versions as people are going crazy to witness this Rajamouli epic. 600-700 crore total Indian collections is a huge possibility for the movie.

Salman Khan and box office domination have become a factual equation. Every Salman Khan film creates a storm and enters the top grossing list. His Eid release Tubelight is already a trending topic in film community and its teaser or trailer is not even released. His association with Kabir Khan is highly successful. Set in 1962 Indo-Sino war, Tubelight is naturally expected to touch the 300 crore milestone. If the film becomes unanimously loved, then sky is the limit. This June, Tubelight will shatter grand records and will set some new ones.
‘2.0’ is one of the most exciting films of 2017 and is also a potential box office record breaker. Rajinikanth’s gargantuan fan following, combined with Bollywood’s Akshay Kumar who is one of the most loved actors today, first part Robot’s huge reputation and Diwali festival, these all factors can easily help 2.0 collect 200-250 crore in India. There have been only some poster releases from the film yet the response for it is tremendous. Superstar Rajinikanth can do anything! Mind it.

Tiger Zinda Hai
This is going to be Salman Khan’s year all the way. After Tubelight, Salman also has another blockbuster material movie ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’. A sequel to ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, this film will be on its way to for a record breaking action flick. Already proven a successful pair, Salman-Katrina’s on screen romance is highly loved by the audience and when Salman’s fans love something, records are broken. Tiger Zinda Hai, just like Tubelight, can go past the 300 crore or even more as it will have action, romance and SALMAN KHAN.
