Expensive Bollywood Flops

5. Kites

Kites Hrithik Roshan

Kites have some melodious songs from singers like KK and Vishal Dadlani. Still, the film failed to cover the costs invested in its making. Remarkable actor Hritik Roshan suffered a significant debacle with Kites. With many international scenes, this flop flick was made on a budget of Rs 82 crores. Sadly it was only able to fetch 48.33 crores.


6. Bombay Velvet

Directed by revered director Anurag Kashyap, Bombay Velvet was made on a big budget of Rs.120 crores. With such a huge budget, a respected director, and marvelous actors like Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma, this flick created a massive hype that it couldn’t meet. As a result, it could only generate a bad amount of Rs 43.1 crores.


7. Kalank

Kalank Review

A huge success anticipated with the release of Kalank turned out to be a huge failure. This flick was one of the most talked movies of 2019 as many striking faces from Bollywood were a part of it, like Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, and Sanjay Dutt. But unfortunately, this muti-starrer epic Kalank only made Rs. 66.03 crores after investing around Rs 180 crores in its production.


8. Saawariya


Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor‘s debut film Saawariya tanked at the box office. Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed the film that was made on a budget of INR 40 crores. Saawariya ended up earning INR 18.48 crores at the box office.


9. Shaandaar

Shaandaar Shahid Alia

Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Pankaj Kapoor’s starer film Shaandaar was one of the biggest flops in 2015. With such a big starcast, Shaandaar was the most anticipated film of 2015. Shaandaar was made on a budget of INR 69 crores. It made a gross collection of INR 39.48 crores.

Nobody expects or anticipates a movie with such a big budget to hit such lows, but it is not just about the amount of money spent and invested in a movie. Many of the low-budgeted films also create a substantial positive impact and become a masterpiece in themselves. It is all about the compelling storyline, well-written script, and gifted actors who can make the audience in a state of awe, thereby making the movie a huge success. These are some of the most expensive Bollywood flops in history that went through a costly loss. Which name in the list surprised you the most? Let us know in the comments below.
