Bollywood has had a healthy year thus far. In its first quarter, the industry has seen a Rs. 100 crore movie every month. According to insiders, this is a good thing.
Trade analyst Atul Mohan says, “Most of the films have had 70 -80 per cent occupancy in the theatres. Only a few films, such as OK Jaanu and Rangoon, didn’t have the kind of return that could pull them through. It’s a very rare scenario to have a 100 crore movie every month from the beginning of the year. This is a very good sign. March is said to be a bad month for the film industry, as there are exams, but Badrinath Ki Dulhania surprised everyone. The year 2017 looks healthy to me, since we’re in the second quarter and we have a great line-up coming every month.”
