Bachchan’s Sarkar 3 was not a hit, and that’s putting it mildly. The movie, another sequel in The Godfather-inspired saga, tanked at the box office, and how. The movie earned a measly Rs 9.93 core at the box office. Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, the film also starred Manoj Bajpayee, Ronit Roy, and Amit Sadh in significant roles. Sarkar 3 had released on May 12, 2017.

Pink – Rs 65.39 core

Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, Pink saw Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Angad Bedi, and Andrea Tariang in pivotal roles. The film hit the screens on September 16, 2016.
