raees, dangal, aamir khan, shah rukh khan, srk film, Aamir Khan’s blockbuster Dangal and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees are some of the Bollywood superhits you can watch on Netflix.

Aamir Khan’s Dangal is in no mood to stop. Thanks to its China collection, the film is a mere Rs 6 crore away from creating the Rs 2000-crore club. And now, the film will also screen on Netflix. In the year 2016, we saw films on a range of topics including drug addiction, women empowerment and social dramas. Not all may have managed to win an award but they have influenced us in the right way, by hitting the right chord. While we enjoyed the regular romantic comedies of Bollywood, few films were a reflection of the real world which at times threw light on those issues which we are afraid to confront in our everyday lives.

Here are some movies on Netflix that will set your mind whirring towards issues such as women empowerment, corruption, drug abuse and much more.
