Bollywood didn’t really begin 2016 on a hit note with the first release of the year, Wazir putting up an average performance at the box office. The beginning of the year has’t particularly been the best period for the industry. There aren’t very promising new releases coming up either except for the Akshay Kumar–Nimrat Kaur starrer, Airlift that hits theaters shortly. But if you’re in the mood to watch a film worth your while, two critically-acclaimed Hollywood movies, The Danish Girl and The Hateful Eight are out. Even though it is a lull period for Bollywood, a lot has been happening. While Shah Rukh Khan expressed his disappointment over Dilwale’s collection, Sanjay Leela Bhansali spoke about his next film. Read on to know all that kept Bollywood in the news last week:
