‘Satyameva Jayate 2’
2021 will be a year for sequels with John Abraham reprising his role of a man who fights against the system and injustice taking place around him. Abraham was praised for his performance of Virendra Rathod who takes matters into his own hands when he sees corrupt police officers misusing their power. The 2018 film did extremely well at the box office with fans now looking forward to the sequel which is releasing in May 2021.
‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’
‘Bunty Aur Babli’ hit the screens in 2005 leaving audiences around the world asking for more. The performances of both Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan had people in stitches with their hilarious situations. Not only were they praised for their chemistry but the story, the songs everything about the film became iconic. Amitabh Bachchan starred in the film as a police officer who made it his mission to nab the mischievous duo. Fans were happy to see both father and son appear in the film together even if they were on opposite sides. Also who can forget Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who stole the show with her item number in ‘Kajra Re’. In the new one, Saif Ali Khan will be joining Mukerji and also Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh are a part of the cast.

‘Laal Singh Chaddha’
It is said that the fruit of patience is often sweet and in the case of Aamir Khan’s fans let’s hope so. Announcements were made that the Bollywood remake of the 1994 Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’ would be made with Khan in the lead. The film would also see Khan reuniting with Kareena Kapoor Khan after much time. A comedy, drama which was supposed to release in time for Christmas in 2020. However it seems that it wasn’t meant to be with the release date being postponed till Christmas 2021. We hope that this is the year where we are finally introduced to Mr Chaddha.
It’s going to be cricket madness this year with a film based on the life of the great Indian cricketer Kapil Dev to be released very soon. The story will focus around the time when the Indian National cricket team won the 1983 Cricket World Cup. Ranveer Singh will be taking on the role of the veteran cricketer and what better choice we say as this actor is able to take on any role that comes his way with great passion. Another reason to rejoice is that Singh will be seen with wife Padukone who funnily enough will be playing the role of his wife in the film and the ensemble cast is also something heavily anticipated with names such as Saqib Saleem, Tahir Raj Bhasin and Panjai Tripathi to name a few to be seen making up the 1983 team on screen.
