2015 is moving to its last quarter. This year has been ruled by Bahubaali and Salman Khan‘s Bajrangi Bhaijaan so far. Now everyone has their eyes fixed on next Salman Khan’s PRDP and Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale.
Though Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan have no releases in 2015 which has made it a little boring. But people, here’s something that will make you more excited about 2016 than this year. The reason behind this is 2016 will be the year of biggies. Yes, from Hrithik to SRK to Salman Khan to Aamir Khan, everyone will battle for the box office king. Let’s take a look.
Shah Rukh Khan
This year, SRK just has one release with Dilwale which will definitely take the box office by storm upon release on December 18. But next year, SRK will be having two big releases. While Fan more seems like a content driven film, Raees will have him turn into a bootlegger. The teaser of both the films have released and created huge buzz. Fan will hit the theatres on April 15 while Raees will takeover Eid this time clashing with Salman’s Sultan.
Salman Khan’s recent release Bajrangi Bhaijaan has broken many box office records. He is now ready to release his next Prem Ratan Dhan Payo on Diwali. But his fans will be more interested to see him in Sultan. More so because the actor will don the garb of a boxer with a story that has real life references. Now that’s combo people have been dying to see Saman in. Eid 2016 will be the most spectacular one in the history of Indian Cinema.
Aamir Khan’s next Dangal will be releasing on Christmas 2016 to shatter any records that are left. It’s based on the life of Mahavir Phogat who raised his daughters as wrestlers and who have won glory for the country. The first look of Aamir Khan has already created a huge buzz around the film.
Hrithik likes to take a long break after every movie. His last film was Bang Bang in 2014 and post that he has been shooting Mohenjo Daro, an Ashutosh Gowarikar film. The film will release on August 12 next year and we can’t wait to see it. Now, not much is known about its plot but we are guessing it will be something deeply rooted in our Indus Valley Civilisation.
Airlift will be Akshay’s first release of 2016 and it is very different from his past releases. It talks about the biggest evacuation every undertaken by any country. It was the time when Saddam Hussain invaded Iraq and 1,70,00 Indians had to be evacuated. With a stellar cast like Akshay and Nimrat Kaur, we can only imagine what the outcome would be. The film releases on January 22 and we can already hear the cash registers ringing.
Ajay Devgn is not only playing the lead in the film but is also directing it after a long gap. The first poster of Shivaay was released even before a single shot of the film was canned. That says a lot about the actor’s belief in the film. Apart from this team Drishyam includes 10 National Awards winners with big names like Ajay, Tabu, Vishal Bhardwaj, Gulzaar etc. Well, the film looks really breathtaking from the poster and we are sure it will create a buzz. Diwali seems like a good deal here.
Ranbir might have had a disappointing 2015 but 2016 could see his return to blockbuster list as well. With Jagga Jasoos in June and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil on Diwali, he looks all set to change his fortunes and silence everyone. The latter has Aishwarya Rai Bachchan too which makes it even bigger!
