Bollywood Box Office 2021: Rs. 1600 crore riding on 15 movies, with Rs. 530 crore invested in Akshay Kumar alone

With the likes of Sooryavanshi and '83 being carried over from 2020, and merging with the likes of Shamshera and Maidaan, an astronomical amount of Rs. 1300-1600 crore is being bet on Bollywood in 2021 from 15 movies alone and the industry would need anywhere between Rs. 1900-2200 crore from theatrical returns (counting the other smaller movies, too) to turn out a profit margin, which would also make it the best year ever in terms of nett collection.
