New Delhi : Welcome 2019! So, now we're waiting to see what will be in store for us from the Bollywood world. Source close to the industry has shared a list of upcoming Bollywood movies to look forward in 2019.
The Accidental Prime Minister
The Accidental Prime Minister is an upcoming Hindi movie scheduled to be released on 11 Jan, 2019. The movie is directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte and will feature Suzanne Bernert, Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna and Arjun Mathur as lead characters. Other popular actors who were roped in for The Accidental Prime Minister are Aahana Kumra, Avtar Sahni, Vimal Verma, Anil Rastogi and Mike Gassaway.
Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is the first big release of the year 2019. The historial film which is directed by Krish and Kangana is based on the life of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi and is releasing on January 25. It is always nice to see women fighting wars on the big screen. Earlier, Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 was also supposed to release on the same day but the movie has been postponed as of now, with no release date in sight.
The powerhouse talent of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt are coming together for the first time in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy which is releasing on February 14. The movie which is based on the underground hip-hop scene in Mumbai will have its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February. After being accepted as a mass hero with Simmba, we are expecting another firework from Ranveer who plays a rapper in the movie. Ranveer has worked in Zoya's previous film Dil Dhadakne Do. This will be Alia's first film with both Ranveer and Zoya. We can't wait to catch this movie at the theatre!
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga
Rumour has it that this Sonam Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer tells the story of a young girl from a traditional Punjabi family who discovers she has feelings for another girl. Sonam and her producer sister Rhea have been trendsetters who've had the guts to tell daring stories and we only expect excellence whenever these two collaborate. Releasing on February 1, this is the first time that Sonam will be seen on the big screen along with her father Anil Kapoor.
Mental Hai Kya
After winning our hearts in Queen, Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao are back with Mental Hai Kya. They have already won us with the tagline that says 'Crazy is the new normal'. Both the actors are seen showing their whacky side in the poster of this psychological thriller. We are absolutely ready to go on this mad ride with these two insanely talented stars. The movie is out on March 29.
Kalank is one the biggest multi-starring period dramas to come out this year. It stars Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Kunal Khemu, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles. This Abhishek Verman directorial will release on April 19. The late Sridevi was initially signed for the character role played by Madhuri Dixit. With such a talented star cast coming together for the first time, we only hope the script doesn't play spoilsport...
Student of The Year 2
Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday are taking over the sequel to the 2012 film Student of the Year. Punit Malhotra's directorial Student of the Year 2 will release on May 10. The film marks the debut of both leading actresses.
The on-screen pair of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif never fail to create magic. They are coming together for Bharat which is an official adaptation of the 2014 Korean film, Ode to My Father. We will for sure look out for scenes that were shot in Abu Dhabi when the movie comes out in July.
Can we just confess that this is perhaps our most awaited movie of the year? We totally believe that the immense talents of Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Akshay Kumar, and more will only bring magic on screen. This is a film based on India's Mars Orbiter Mission and the story revolves around a bunch of women scientists. These are the actors who have individually broken stereotypes in Bollywood and we only expect an exceptionally entertaining and honest film from them. The movie is out on August 15.
Brahmastra is the first film in an intended trilogy by Karan Johar. Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Amitabh Bachchan are coming together on the big screen for the first time. In an interview, Ranbir revealed that director Ayaan Mukerji has spent six years of his life working hard to make an original story and that the trilogy would be made over a period of 10 years. This is perhaps the most ambitious in-house project of Karan Johar's so far.
If you have seen Simmba, then you must have heard the announcement of Rohit Shetty's next Sooryavanshi with Akshay Kumar. Rohit is the undisputed king of masala entertainers and we are most excited to catch Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh, and Akshay together bashing up the bad guys on the big screen on December 19.
