As we all have witnessed, 2022 was not in favor of Bollywood. Only a few movies performed well at the box office and the rest either received mixed reviews or were brutal failures. But why? What are the major reasons behind the downfall of Bollywood?
Today, in this article we will discuss about the factors which we believe are the major reasons behind the downfall of Bollywood.
Some movies impact audiences so much that they wait for the sequels of the same. However, most of the time when Bollywood tried to come up with a sequel, it failed to impress the viewers ( of course there are exceptional cases). This year, the sequel to the superhit movie ‘Ek Villian’ got released. ‘ Ek Villian Returns’ starred Arjun Kapoor and Disha Patani in prominent roles and the film brutally failed to perform at the box office as people claimed that it was a really bad sequel.

Every other person opinionized that some other actor should have been cast as Samrat Prithviraj in place of Akshay Kumar. And once again Bollywood is repeating this mistake by casting Akshay Kumar as Shivaji Maharaj as netizens have started criticizing him only after having a glimpse emphasizing that no one can play Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s role b
