Superstars vs ensemble cast: How a group of good actors is winning against the biggies
This year is probably the one Indian movie lovers were waiting for. Small-budget and content-driven films are winning against highly publicised films with superstars. What used to be a one-sided battle between stars and well-made small films is slowly tilting in favour of the latter. The first eight months of 2017 has seen surprise hits like Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and Hindi Medium. The same period has seen unexpected flops like Salman Khan’s Tubelight, Shah Rukh’s Jab Harry Met Sejal and Ranbir Kapoor’s Jagga Jasoos.
