2016 has finally come to an end. It turned out to be a great year for us in terms of growth as the reach of Bollyarena has increased manifold.

The first quarter of 2016 was pretty good but there were not any big releases. Shahrukh Khan’s Fan disappointed too but still drove huge traffic. In April we faced a setback when one of our editors was admitted to hospital and the website went offline for a week due to the lack of communication.

We recovered from the setback eventually and were back on track. But when Salman Khan’s Sultan released, it drove an insane amount of traffic. The website server crashed as it was unable to hold the traffic. We have to change the server again and it went offline for few days.

In September, we decided to take a break to work on the website to make it better. The updates were limited for about two months but we were back on track in November. December saw the release of Dangal which smashed not only box office records but also viewership records.

This year we had too many achievements. But the biggest is that we get rid of the biased tag as now we have covered films of each actor (It was Aamir Khan’s first film that we tracked). What differentiates Bollyarena from others is that we cover one film at a time and only update about that film for about a week. This confuses some of the readers when they read articles about one film only. But now people have realized that it is a box office portal which tries to promote each film equally.

The box office tracking was right for most of the films except Fan. Predictions also hit the bull’s eye, especially the word of mouth meter was bang on. We also put our bet on Dangal to become the highest grosser of the year which will turn out true in a few days. Some regional films were also tracked.

Check out the list of most viewed articles this year.
