13 Films That Failed At The Box Office But Later Gained Cult Status!


So, it’s not the box office figures alone that decides whether the movie is a hit or a flop, but there are several other factors like acting expertise, awards and recognition, rousing reviews, word-of-mouth marketing as well as public ratings that are predictors of movie success. 

11 Films That Didn’t Do Well At Box Office When They Released But Gained A Cult Status Later!

Here is a list of movies that tanked at box office when they were released in theatres, but over the years, they have gained cult status. 

#1 Andaz Apna Apna

Movies that flopped but are good: Andaz Apna Apna


Andaz Apna Apna had released right after Salman Khan had delivered a box office hit Maine Pyar Kiya and Aamir Khan had given two blockbusters including Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Dil. For this one, both the superstars weaved the magic of their crackling chemistry, yet it turned out to be an utter box office failure.

Neither the duo’s antics nor Shakti Kapoor's legendary dialogues or the hilarious confusion created by Paresh Rawal's double roles impressed the audience at that point in time. But thanks to the private TV channels that finally gave the movie the recognition it deserved.


She said, “When people tell me why don’t you start exercising, I want to say f**k you! How do you know I haven’t been exercising? Do you know how hard I exercise? Do you know what challenges I’ve been facing?

“Do you know that my hormonal problem has made it impossible for me to lose weight for years in between? Not just that, there was a period in between when the more I’d work out, the more I’d put on? People would insinuate that you must be eating unhealthy or that you’re lazy.

And these things stick with you. It would anger me no end. I kept wanting people to stop judging me. But over time, I realised that people judge you/your body only if you do,” she added.
