Know where Manoj Bajpayee's Gulmohar and Tara Sutaria's Apurva ranks
Shahid Kapoor did not only make his web series debut but also his OTT film debut in 2023, with Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bloody Daddy. The movie was among the most-awaited and for a reason. However, this one did not become the most-viewed. No, Sidharth Malhotra’s Mission Majnu, which released in the beginning of the year did not cut it either. According to a list released by Ormax Media, it was rather a Varun Dhawan-starrer that became the most viewed film.
Top 3 films
Varun Dhawan’s Bawaal, which became known more for Janhvi Kapoor’s scene, was the most viewed OTT film of the year with 21.2 million views. Shahid Kapoor’s Bloody Daddy followed suit with 17 million views. The third, not very surprisingly, is Manoj Bajpayee’s Gulmohar. The actor had won people over with another project and it got 16.3 million views.
Tara Sutaria’s Apurva, a story of survival, made it to top five with 12.6 million views. However, there was another lesser-known gem that beat it and came on the fourth spot. That movie was Rocket Boys actor Ishwak Singh’s Tumse Na Ho Payega. The film got two million views more than Apurva and ranked fourth with 14.3 million views.
Sidharth Malhotra’s Mission Majnu came at the bottom of the list with 10.8 million views. Sara Ali Khan’s Gaslight, on the other hand, missed top five with one spot. The film gathered 12.5 million views. Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Jaane Jaan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Tiku Weds Sheru and Ishaan Khatter’s Pippa were in close competition on the list with just 0.1 difference. Sujoy Ghosh’s Jaane Jaan got 11.6 million views, Kangana Ranaut-produced Tiku Weds Sheru 11.5 million views and Raja Krishna Menon’s Pippa took ninth spot with 11.4 million views.
