The Bollywood industry is a world of rocketing highs and deadly lows. The industry changes rapidly and that's why there is stiff competition in the industry to prove one's worth. Though 2018 paved the way to a whole new bunch of actors along with some truly fantastic cinema, it was commercially stagnant as we saw only a few movies which had the cash counters ringing.

But 2019 has already proved to be quite the game changer. Just three months into the year and there have been several hits and quite some flops. So here are the hits and flops of the first quarter of 2019 -
