Even though we are almost more than a year away, 2019 is looking to be a very exciting proposition for Bollywood. Some very huge movies have been announced to release during the year, and each of them look really intriguing in their own space. YashRaj Films had recently announced that they have roped in Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff for an action entertainer. Karan Johar's Dharma Productions also announced three biggies that could be the production house’s most expensive offerings.
Here are seven movies that pretty much make 2019 an exciting year for Bollywood...
Hrithik vs Tiger
For the first time, a chela is going to take on his guru, or at least share the screen. YRF and Siddharth Anand managed to achieve a casting coup by roping in Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff for a movie. It is touted to be an action entertainer, where the leads will get plenty of opportunities to flex their dancing muscles as well. Vaani Kapoor is playing the sole female lead in the movie, opposite Hrithik Roshan.
Scheduled release date: January 25 2019
While we have no clue when Randeep Hooda and Ajay Devgn’s versions of Battle of Saragarhi is going to be made, at least Akshay Kumar has gone ahead and given us a release date. Directed by Anurag Singh, Akshay Kumar is co-producing this epic war drama with Karan Johar.
Scheduled release date: Holi 2019
The first film of the trilogy, Brahmastra (earlier titled Dragon) is a fantasy adventure, directed by the maverick Ayan Mukerji, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead. This could be the costliest project Karan Johar will be producing and he has joined hands with Fox Studios to make this vision come true.
Scheduled release date: August 15, 2019
Nearly a year back, Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey released the poster of the next collaboration. While the cracked specs made us curious about the movie, Crack hasn't moved beyond planning stages, with Akshay and Neeraj getting busy in other projects. When the rumours of Crack getting shelved became strong, it was announced that the project is still on and it will release in 2019
Scheduled release date: August 15 2019
The sequel to Salman Khan's mammoth hit was in the burner for a long time. But it looks like Salman Khan has finally given nod to director-producer Sajid Nadiadwala, though Jacqueline Fernandez is heard to be sitting out of this one. Knowing Bollywood's lack of apathy to its female leads when it comes to sequels, this is hardly surprising.
Scheduled release date: Christmas 2019
Tanaji: The Unsung Warrior
Like we mentioned before, we have no clue when Ajay Devgn is releasing his take on Battle of Saragarhi. But he is quite gung ho about the biopic of the Maratha general of Shivaji Maharaj, the feared Tanaji Malusare. While the makers assure us that the pre-production is in full swing, we are only keeping our hopes up when Ajay Devgn begins the shoot of the movie.
Though Karan Johar has tweeted that the cast and the title are not yet fixed, we have been hearing that this movie features an ensemble cast featuring Sanjay Dutt, Sridevi, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur. That cast, if final, is super exciting on paper atleast, and this would be the first period movie Dharma Productions would be making.
Scheduled release date: April 2019
