Bollywood is one of the most successful and famous Indian film industries. But wait…. don’t you think 2022 makes us think twice about it after the rise of South Indian Industry. So is really after movies like KGF, Pushpa and RRR Bollywood is finished now?

In 2015, when people watched ‘Baahubali‘, they remained stunned. And Baahubali was the film which that made the world understand the real potential of the Southern film Industry.

This blockbuster movie came back in 2017, when it surprised the world once again with its sequel ‘Baahubali 2: The conclusion’. Director S. S. Rajamouli directed this film, which makes all the stars so desperate to work with him.

After the storm of the film, everything calms down due to the pandemic in 2020 when film industry was badly affected by Covid-19 .

During covid-19, when people were missing theatres, then OTT platforms saved us all.

Admittedly, OTT platforms are the ocean of contents without any rules and limitations. So you can, just dive into this ocean to have any kind of splendid content.

Fortunately, this was the time when the south industry did something smart by dubbing and giving subtitles to their content but Bollywood doesn’t. Moreover, south movie directors start to release their works on the OTT platform.

And guess what!!

Here, the south industry walks a step ahead by providing people the chance to explore their content in any way. And this tactic works greatly!

The audience starts to love South content a lot which eventually brings the revolution in the south industry. However, Bollywood was also there in the race but lately.

After all these silent competitions, the real conflict begins in 2022. And the storm of South Industry arises again!

1. Yash’s ‘KGF 2’
2. Ram Charan & Jr. NTR’s ‘RRR’
3. Allu Arjun’s ‘Pushpa: The Rise’

By saying this, I do not mean that Bollywood will completely finished. Because from 90s , Bollywood eventually start to enter the crores’ club one by one.

And also, the rise of South Industry doesn’t indicate that the South Industry is performing well in just only recent time and not previously.

So here is the list of Bollywood movies who crossed 100 crores
