Bollywood movies have been a long time favorite of Pakistani cinema. This year, a number of movies from neighboring India will be coming to the Pakistani screens. Here’s a list of top 5 Bollywood movies releasing in 2018.
Shah Rukh Khan fans, rejoice! Zero is a Bollywood comedy featuring Kartrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma with the king of Bollywood himself. Directed by Aanand L Rai, the story has been written by Himanshu Sharma.
Zero is a film like never before. Shahrukh Khan becomes a dwarf and Sharma has intellectual disability. What are these two up to and how will the super star Katrina Kaif play along with their games? We can only guess.
This is the first collaboration between Shah Rukh Khan and Aanand L Rai, and the second one between Katrina, Sharma and SRK.

Second on our list is the film that has faced quite a lot of discomfort by right wing groups in India. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, this movie features Deepika Padukone in the lead role with Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. Supporting cast includes Aditi Rao Hydari, Jim Sarbh, Raza Murad and Anupriya Goenka.
A Hindi epic from Bollywood, it is based on a poem called Padmavat written by Malik Muhammad Jayasi. Deepika appears as Queen Padmavati, the beautiful wife of the noble king Maha Rawal Ratan Singh. All was well until Sultan Alauddin Khilji comes to know of her famed beauty. What follows is a war of epic proportion.
