In 2021 and 2022, Tollywood emerged as the number 1 industry in the country after hits like Pushpa, RRR, Karthikeya 2, and Sitaramam. But 2023 has turned out to be a dull year for the Telugu film industry with no big hits on the pan-India level.
On the other hand, Bollywood has emerged as the number 1 industry in the country again after massive hits like Pathaan, Gadar2, Jawan, Rocky Aur Ranii Ki Prem Kahanii. Upcoming films like Tiger 3, Animal, and Dunki also look very promising and the total gross of films from the Hindi film industry will easily cross Rs. 5000 crores this year.
But next year doesn’t look very good for Bollywood. On the contrary, the Telugu film industry is all set to capture the Hindi market once again with huge pan-India films lined up.
Pushpa 2’s craze is on a different level altogether. Kalki also looks tremendously promising. There are good expectations from Devara and Game Changer as well.
After a lackluster 2023, the anticipation is building to see if Tollywood can regain its top spot in 2024, potentially dethroning Bollywood as the leading film industry in the country.
