2018 has so far proved to be a content-rich year. From PadMan to Mukkabaaz and Raid, makers have experimented with the content and it seems that their solo aim to serve something fresh to the audience. The first half of Bollywood year has been quite an exciting one and as per reports, it has done a business of over Rs 2,210 crore. The second half of 2018 has already begun and we just can't help but keep our fingers crossed to see what will be served on our platter.
The second half promises to be starry as two of our Khans- Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan will be back after a year. While Aamir's Thugs of Hindostan is set to release on Diwali, Shah Rukh will charm you with Zero in Christmas.
