Almost eleven months of 2018 are gone and like every year some Bollywood releases impressed us, while some failed to meet our expectations. If we take a look at the box-office verdicts Bollywood movies released this year, we see much better numbers as compared to 2017.Let’s take a look at the top 10 Bollywood grossers of 2018. ‘Raid’stands at number 10. The movie starring Ajay Devgan and Ileana D’Cruz was based on a real life story and did decent business at the box office and collected a total of Rs 101.53cr. ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ was the biggest surprise package of 2018. The movie with no big names was able to rule the box office for more than four weeks. The film starring Kartik Aaryan was able to make a total of Rs 108.71cr at the box office. ‘Raazi’was perhaps Alia Bhatt’s best work till date. She single handedly took the charge of the movie and performed beyond everyone’s expectations. The movie directed by Meghna Gulzar is a must watch for sure. The movie did a blooming business of Rs 123.17cr. ‘Badhaai Ho’was a big risk and a different kind of topic for Indian audience but the movie connected with the people in a good way. The Ayushmann Khurrana starrer has earned a total of Rs 125.80cr and is still running in the theaters. ‘Stree’was another movie that left us all in surprise as Bollywood is not very good with the horror comedy genre. But ‘Stree’ as an exception. A good script with some exceptional actors led to the success of the film. The movie gathered Rs 129.21 Cr and stands at number seven in our list. ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ was a disappointment all in all but still the star value of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan was able to gather some money for the producers. The movie was released on a very large scale and so far it has collected a total of Rs 141.20cr. ‘Baaghi 2’was another success at the box office this year. The movie starring Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani was executed so well that it impressed the audience in every possible way. The movie collected a total of Rs 165cr and gets the number fourth spot in our list. ‘Race 3’was again a big project of 2018 that led us down but it was the star value of the entire star cast that saved the producers.
