Despite their possible superstitious origins, these tales have been ingrained in Bollywood tradition. Let’s look at ten films with a history of sad incidents and unexplained happenings during production, earning them the label of “cursed.”

Top 10 cursed movies In Bollywood

1. Filmmaker Raj Kapoor’s groundbreaking 1970 film “Mera Naam Joker” encountered many obstacles. Problems with the film’s finances and the sudden death of Raj Kapoor’s wife led many to believe it was ill-fated.


2. It took a long time and a lot of money to make Satish Kaushik’s ambitious film “Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja” (1993). The film’s commercial failure only bolstered the theory that it was cursed.

3. Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s “Guddi” (1971) was rumoured to be cursed after star Jaya Bachchan was seriously injured on set.

4. “Raabta” (2017), starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon, had a rocky production and release process. It was also one of the last movies Sushant Singh Rajput appeared in before his death.


5. The 2013 film “Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela”: Several problems, including accidents on site and legal issues, plagued this Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. Deepika Padukone, who plays the female lead, was even the target of death threats while making the movie.

6. Armaan Jain, the grandson of Raj Kapoor, made his acting debut in the romance drama “Lekar Hum Deewana Dil” (2014). It bombed at the box office, though, and people started discussing a curse on the Kapoors.

7. Highly anticipated but unsuccessful at the film office, “Jab Harry Met Sejal” (2017) starred Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma. It was said to be the leading performers’ unluckiest production.

8. Directed by Pankaj Kapoor and starring his son Shahid Kapoor, “Production Delays and financial difficulties plagued Mausam” (2011). It was well-received by critics but underperformed financially.
