In Bollywood, few things are as much a guarantee of success, as multi starrer films. The thrill of seeing multiple actors share screen space makes for an intriguing viewing, and because all the actors’ fans watch the film, it usually makes merry at the box office.
However, there have been multi starrer films, which, despite their multiple stars, could not become hits at the box office. Let’s talk about some such films-
#1 Ab Tumhare Hawale Vatan Saathiyo
#2 Eklavya- The Royal Guard
Another Amitabh Bachchan multi starrer that turned out to be a dud; this one had Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Vidya Balan, Jackie Shroff, and Boman Irani. Oh, and it was India’s official entry to the Oscars that season.
The team of Khakee- minus director Rajkumar Santoshi and a certain Amitabh Bachchan, reunited for this ill fated action drama.
This one had Ajay Devgn, John Abraham, Vivek Oberoi and Lara Dutta- but this ‘horror’ film met with a truly horrific fate at the box office.
#6 LoC Kargil
JP Dutta tried to revisit the Border formula, but created a royal mess of 32 actors playing the Indian army.
#7 Ramgopal Verma Ki Aag
This Sholay remake had Amitabh Bachchan (yet again), alongwith Mohanlal and Ajay Devgn. But the film is widely considered to be one of the worst Hindi films ever made.
#8 Great Grand Masti
#9 Jaani Dushman- Ek Anokhi Kahani
Roughly 10 actors probably regret doing this ‘film’.
