Year 2018 looks very lucky for Bollywood stars as almost all the release until now has become the part of 100 crore club and it’s not just male-centric films but female-centric films like Veere Di Wedding and Raazi is on seventh sky. This is the record breaking year for these female actresses as mostly the women oriented film is not given that importance in India but this year it has marked the cinema. Talking about film Raazi, it already entered 100 crore club.
The film however made 200 crore profit worldwide. This is a huge success for celebrities this year. The year has also brought a lucky charm to producers like Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor with their super hit films. The film ‘Raazi’ is the only female oriented film in last five years to hit 100 crore target.
The film had a very slow start but won the race as like the story of Tortoise and Rabbit and the film played as that tortoise who slowly and steadily won the race. The film became one of the top film of the year. An adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel Calling Sehmat, the film also stars Vicky Kaushal, Soni Razdan, Jaideep Ahlawat, Rajit Kapur and Shishir Sharma. It was appreciated by critics for not showing Pakistan in a bad light despite it being a story set during the period of India-Pakistan war of 1971.
