The year of 2018 has some great films in store for the audiences as both content and commercial films of big stars will hit the theatres and will fight it out in their respective fields. We will be seeing stars like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor in films like Dutt Biopic, Thugs of Hindostan and the untitled film by Anand L Rai.Also, Akshay Kumar has 4 films slated to release in 2018 and given the track record of his recent films, all of his films have become big hits and have gone on to become some of the most profitable films of the year. All of these films and performances by the actors in these films have already piqued the audience's curiosity for these films and as we know that all of these actors put in a lot of effort and hard work for their roles, it's going to be very difficult for the juries at the award ceremonies to decide on the best actor award.Due to controversies, Padmavati will not release on its scheduled date of 1st December and will now release some time in 2018. This means that Ranvir Singh's performance as the menacing Alauddin Khilji will also be considered for the best actor award and that means the competition for the best actor award would be intense. Here are 5 actors who will be fighting for the best actor award if Padmavati releases in 2018:Ranveer Singh-The actor will appear as the ruthless Turk ruler Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati. By the looks of the trailer, Ranveer has aced the role and imbibes the character of Khilji pretty well. His performance would be hard to beat.Shah Rukh Khan- The actor will appear as a dwarf in upcoming Anand L Rai directorial that also features Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead roles. The film is touted to be one of the most technically advanced films in Bollywood as well as SRK's performance as a dwarf is a major highlight. He's already a winner of 8 Filmfare Awards for the best actor, it'll be interesting to see his performance.Ranbir Kapoor- The actor will appear as Sanjay Dutt in Rajkumar Hirani's directorial. Rajkumar Hirani is one of the best and most successful directors in Bollywood. All of his films have received critical acclaim, won many awards and have gone on to become some of the highest earners of the year. It'll be interesting to see Ranbir's performance.Aamir Khan- He will appear in Vijay Krishna Acharya's upcoming action-adventure film Thugs of Hindostan. We all know how much effort Aamir Khan puts into his characters and his performance will be hard to beat.Akshay Kumar- He will appear in 4 films next year and his performances in Mogul, Padman, and Gold would be interesting to watch. He has improved a lot as an actor and it will be difficult for the jury to zero in on one particular performance.

The name Rajkumar Hirani needs no introduction. He is one of the most successful directors to have ever worked in the Indian cinema. He is one of that rare breed of filmmakers whose films have received universal critical acclaim as well as a lot of love at the box office. He is that one filmmaker who never had to resort to cheap thrills to make his films successful. Born on 20th November 1962 to a Sindhi family in Nagpur, he would have never imagined the kind of success he would receive as a director.The man behind some of the biggest hits in Bollywood like the Munnabhai Series, PK and 3 Idiots is very humble and loves to better himself with every outing. But what is the reason for his clean track record? How come his films deal with socially relevant topics and content and yet end up being some of the highest grossing films of the year? Let's take a plunge into some of the qualities that set him apart from any other director working in Bollywood today and why there can be another Raju Hirani:Stories-Every director is telling a story and it's his vision that we see in the form of a film. Raju Hirani is one of the finest storytellers we have today and he has written or co-written all of his films. All of his stories are gripping with no loopholes and most of the Bollywood films ignore that and often bear the brunt of major plotholes. All the characters in his films have well-defined arcs that help the story move forward smoothly.Humour-All of his films are full of humor and have healthy doses of comedy in them. He has made some of the finest comedies in Bollywood that never took the comedy for granted. In an era when cheap sex comedies and films with derogatory comments are released under the guise of comedy that makes it difficult to watch them with families, Mr. Hirani's films provide wholesome entertainment for all age groups.Social Relevance/Education-All of his films deal with critical social issues like religion, middle-class aspirations, following one's passion, people reforming themselves and standing up for themselves and fighting for what's right. Now, hardly you will come across a film that educates the audiences while keeping the atmosphere light and humorous. Most of the content-oriented films tend to be all serious and gloomy while his films educate while entertaining.Emotions-Indians are a sucker for emotions and his films are full of emotional quotient. Be it a complaining mother from a poor family that also has an ailing father and unmarried sister, people not able to face their loved ones because of all the lies they have told or friends/lovers/families meeting after a long gap, Mr. Hirani has mastered the art of appealing the emotional content to the audiences.Partnerships-Over the years, he has formed some great partnerships with actors like Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi, and Aamir Khan. He gets the best performances out of his actors that not only help the actors bag numerous awards and accolades but also boosts their career. His films have received worldwide acclaim and have gone on to become blockbusters in foreign markets too. He's the founder of 200 Crore and 300 Crore club.

The only struggle one can seem to associate SRK with is the struggle to make enough space at his home to stuff all his ceremoniously won trophies. For someone who holds the record of jointly winning most Filmfare Best Actor awards along with the legendary Dilip Kumar, not winning a single National Award comes rather as a revelation. Shah Rukh Khan with countless award wins and even more nominations, hasn’t yet been able to get his hands on the honor an actor would dream of in some way or the other.Why exactly has Shah Rukh not been able to win a National Award? Did he never deserve one? No. Is he a bad actor? Hell No. Then why has the Baadshah of Bollywood not been able to accomplish what he too might have secretly dreamt of. If anybody was to take a closer look at his filmography, it’s safe to conclude he’s really delivered some out of the ordinary stuff on celluloid.From breaking the stereotypical definition of a ‘hero’ in Bollywood to making niche subjects find the largest of audience, Shah Rukh’s list of work does warrant him a couple of National Award wins at least. But as they say, it’s all about the stars coming together to make the impossible happen for you.Going by the kind of choices jury has made over the last 10, 15 or 20 years, we made a list of occasions Shah Rukh really stood a chance. Let’s find out what created those chances for him and why didn’t he really win:1998Deserved for: Dil SeWho Won? Ajay Devgn for Zakhm &Mammottyfor Dr. Babasaheb AmbedkarShah Rukh Khan in Dil Se was way beyond than singing Chaiyan Chaiyan at the top of a train! As Amarkant Sharma in the movie, he was absorbingly charming in his performance and brought out the kind of urgency one would associate with such a character. Of course Ajay Devgn was absolutely breathtaking in Zakhm and so was Mammotty in the English language film, but the first time SRK created a chance for him, he was just unfortunate to have been overshadowed.2002Deserved for: DevdasWho Won? Ajay Devgn for The Legend Of Bhagat SinghWhen Shah Rukh decided to unleash his other side and bring out the best in him, it was unfortunately Ajay Devgn again on the other side getting the better of him. While Shah Rukh won all possible Best Actor awards that year, National Award was still too close yet too far. Most of the theories strongly believe Shah Rukh was certain to win the National Award that year had Ajay’s performance not been that convincing. However, it was just not meant to be.2004Deserved for: SwadesWho Won? Saif Ali Khan for Hum TumPossibly the only time he would have really found himself robbed of the National Award honor was in 2004. While he was sweeping everybody of their feet having delivered three acclaimed performances in Main Hoon Naa, Veer-Zara and Swades, he had almost booked the National honor for him playing Mohan Bhargav in Gowariker’s Swades. What transpired eventually was not something one had expected. Saif got the honor for his performance as Karan Kapoor in Hum Tum and made way for a number of controversies to come in. Swades as they say was the closest Shah Rukh got to the award.2007Deserved for: Chak De IndiaWho Won? Prakash Raj for KanchivaramThe performance that is still considered one of his supreme best once again brought him in contention to win the National Award while he was busy collecting trophies at other events. However when the list got out, it was a snub for poor King Khan again. This time to give him a beating was Prakash Raj who later made a habit of winning National Awards. Performance like Chak De happens once in a lifetime and Shah Rukh was just unlucky to have got someone just about better than him or was he?2010Deserved for My Name Is KhanWho Won? Dhanush for Aadukalam & Salim Kumar for Adaminte Makan AbuMNIK did become one of the most talk about projects back in the time and the success of the film further made way for Shah Rukh to expect his first National Award win. However, the competition in the year was so close that Tamil and Malayalam industries took most honors home. As Rizwan Khan, SRK was able evoke a sense of sympathy through his honest performance, but it just couldn’t be enough for him to conquer the Everest.It took more than 20 years for Leanardo DiCaprio to win his first Academy Award for Best Actor, maybe a National Award is just round the corner for Shah Rukh too. Just hang in there King Khan, you richly deserve one!

A big banner movie with A-listers in the lead flopping at the box office comes with its share of effects. People introspect, distributors incur losses and it all goes back to be the same again. But what repercussions does a ‘Disaster’ bring with itself? Career threatening warnings maybe! And that’s exactly what we’ve experienced at the box office in 2017. Who would have imagined Saif Ali Khan circumstantially failing to earn his movie a respectable total?2017 has given us enough examples with some of the top movies failing miserably at the box office.
