Bollywood fans, this one’s for you. Over the past couple of years, we’ve watched some great content, but missed a lot more due to the pandemic. Many have been delayed, but it looks like these films will see the light of day this year.
The past two years have been spent in lockdown, but luckily the virus hasn’t bogged down New Year’s minds. Here’s a look at 12 expected Bollywood films that are all slated for release in 2022.
A remake of the 2019 Telugu movie, this one is based on sports. With Shahid Kapoor, a former cricketer returning to the game for the sake of his son, alongside Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur. The film was due for release this month, but due to current circumstances it has been postponed until further notice. We hope we can witness the magic of this film on the big screen.
We’ve all read about it in history, but watching it conceptualize itself is something only Bollywood can do. Starring Akshay Kumar, the film is based on the life of Prithviraj Chauhan, a king of the Chahamana dynasty. It features Akshay Kumar as Prithviraj Chauhan. Not only that, Manushi Chhillar made his Hindi film debut playing his role Sanyogit. The film is slated for release in January, but has been postponed again due to Omicron.
An action thriller after a long time. Based on the hostage-taking, the scenario is inspired by real events. John Abraham not only stars here, but also produces the film. Alongside John, Attack introduces Jacqueline and Rakhulpreet.
4. Gangubai Kathiawadi
The most anticipated film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It’s been a while since we’ve seen a great film on the 70mm and it looks like we’ll be seeing that this year. The film shows the journey of young Ganga who in a short time marks her own territory and becomes Gangubai – a madam in the red light zone of Kamathipura. With Alia Bhatt, the promo has already attracted a lot of attention.
5. Jayeshbai Jordaar
As the name suggests, it is an inclined Gujarati. The film stars Ranveer Singh as the titular Gujarati man who believes in equal rights between men and women in society. It also marks the Hindi debut of Shalini Pandey who was in Arjun Reddy.
We haven’t seen Ranbir Kapoor for quite a while. Previously, Brahmastra was put aside and now Shamshera. But hopefully we’ll see the actor’s two biggest releases this year. Shamshera stars Ranbir Kapoor in a dual father-son role. Sanjay Dutt will play the villain of the film and Vaani is the actress. Its theatrical release is scheduled for March 18, 2022.
7. Bhool Bhulaiyaa
In more than two years, despite the pandemic, we have seen only an increase in the popularity of Kartik Aryan. There are girls outside his house shouting his name out loud, men get tattoos, and people at the airport try to spot him. Despite a short career chart, the actor made a huge following fan. The actor will then be seen in a horror comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa, a sequel to that of Akshay Kumar.
After shattering Jayalalitha’s performance, Kangana Ranaut is ready to don another brilliant character. Dhaakad tells the story of a fierce and tough international spy who sets out on an action-packed adventure. Kangana with blazing guns will be quite a sight to watch. Alongside Kangana are Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta.
9. Laal Singh Chadha
A remake of the 1994 American film Forrest Gump, the film stars Aamir Khan in the lead role along with Kareena Kapoor and Naga Chaitanya, yes his film debut in Hindi.
A few people are dying to watch. Deepika Padukone and Siddhanth Chaturvedi and Ananaya Panday
