2017 was not a great year for Bollywood as many big releases like Jab Harry Met Sejal and Tubelight disappointed at the box office. But it seems the entertainment industry has learned lessons from the past, and in 2018 gave us the perfect blend of stars and content, which resulted in maximum footfalls in the cinema halls. Interestingly, we got a Rs 100 crore film in every month from January to June, which has never happened before. So let’s check out the films which brought moviegoers to the theatres.
