There were a lot of expectations from everyone in the industry that 2018 would be a landmark year for Bollywood. Almost all the major stars are coming out with a film or two and there are high hopes that this year will wipe the memories of 2017 which turned out to be a mixed bag for the industry. Big star vehicles failed miserably while films which were expected to do well performed underwhelmingly.
