Bollywood is ready to fight back in 2023. But it’s not January. The scenario is bleak, with the exception of Pathaan, where boycott calls by certain sections could hit the box office. There is a possibility.
On the other hand, SRK’s ardent fans might assure the safe passage of the pattern, but Aamir Khan’s Lal Singh Chadda sank without a trace after a boycott call and his fans were against it. I couldn’t do anything.
Deepika Padukone, who has come under scrutiny for her outfit choices, could also be put under the wheels of the Wrath Yatra. After that, you need to strengthen your position.
January’s only notable release is debutant Aasmaan Bhardwaj’s Kutty. An interesting cast (Naseeruddin Shah, Tabu, Konkona Sen Sharma, bandh mutthi Shardul Bhardwaj) is the backbone of this Dark He noir-ish film that could be Bollywood’s first hit of 2023.
On the OTT platform, Netflix has the tense and engaging spy drama Mission Majnu featuring Sidharth Malhotra in his best performance since Shershah released in January. You might end up getting a bigger audience than Pathaan!
