As the year 2018 comes to an end…..it has been a fairly interesting year for Bollywood lovers!
While the year had started with the controversial Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s Padmaavat, another Akshay Kumar starrer, Padman, promoted with a social cause also did well. While Salman Khan’s Eid venture Race 3 may not have appealed to many as the first 2 series did, the movie grossed over a 300 crore mark worldwide . Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor was another eagerly awaited movie of the year. Meghna Gulzar’s directoral Raazi starring Alia Bhatt, received tremendous critical as well as commercial acclaim.
