Bollywood is one of the biggest movie industries of the world, a huge number of films are made every year but there are only few which are showered with love and affection by audiences. While many people go to cinema halls for watching the movies of their favourite actors and actresses, there are some who also take into consideration the name of the director who has directed the movie before deciding whether to watch the movie in the cinema hall or not.
Most of the times we remember names of only hit movies that are directed by a director and tend to forget about the ones which are directed by him but fail to perform at the box-office. In this article, we are going to tell you about the Bollywood director who has given the most number of flops. Any guesses?
Well, you must be pretty acquainted with the director Vikram Bhatt who has directed 33 movies in his career of 29 years. However, out of these 33 movies, a big number of 25 films fell dud at the box-office and out of the remaining 8 – 2 were super hits, 3 were hits and 3 were average at the box-office.
Whenever we talk about Vikram Bhatt, we are reminded of “Ghulam”, “Kasoor”, “Raaz”, etc. and it is because of such movies that he has managed to stay relevant in the Hindi film industry. “Madhosh” was Vikram Bhatt’s first movie and it was flop, his next three were also flops but 1998-released Aamir Khan and Rani Mukerji starrer “Ghulam” was a hit. He directed “Kasoor” and “Raaz”which were loved by audiences but then he gave some flops such as “Inteha”, “Aetbaar” and “Elaan”. However, his 2005 released “Deewane Huye Paagal” was liked by movie buffs and the same goes for 2008 released “1920” and “Haunted 3D” (2011).
Vikram Bhatt directed 2022-released “Judaa Hoke Bhi” is the first movie of the country which has been shot in a virtual production studio.
Though Vikram Bhatt has the highest number of flops, Ram Gopal Varma is not far behind with 24 flop movies. However, the gap between the second and the third spot is big as David Dhawan is next on the list with 16 flop movies, Priyadarshan has 14 flops to his name and Late. Satish Kaushik had 10 flop movies as a director.
Well, Vikram Bhatt must not be happy about this.
