MUMBAI – First time in history of Bollywood that 200 films have released in the span of a single year, with PK doing the honors of being the 200th one.
Starring Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Sanjay Dutt and Sushant Singh Rajput, PK will end the year on a high note as it is one of the most anticipated films of 2014, apart from the fact that Mr Perfectionist and Rajkumar Hirani team up once again after the roaring success of 3 Idiots.
According to a report, until the year 2000, there were about 100 films releasing but post that, the number went higher. However, the trend had died with the influx of multiplexes aimed at an urban audience.
However the rise in releases went up in 2014 with 200 films releasing and the investment could be over Rs 3000 crore.
While films like Kick get a release in 4000 screens, few manage to get showcased in 1 or 2 screens. Bang Bang was the costliest film of the year, made at an estimated cost of Rs 1.65 million, while some films were made in a budget as low as Rs 15-20 million.
