Upcoming movies spike our curiosity to all new levels with their posters, teasers and multiple trailers. If that wasn’t enough we now have social media updates by the cast itself and various contests and challenges too.
We list a few upcoming movies that haven’t initiated full-fledged promotions, yet some rumours have started to make the rounds, courtesy: ‘leaked photos’ and ‘rampage on set’.
Intrigued? Read on.
This periodic drama is one of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream projects, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in pivotal roles. While Deepika will be playing the protagonist Rani Padmini, we’ll see Ranveer in an antagonistic role of Alauddin Khilji.
Padmavati has been the talk of Tinseltown ever since it’s set in Jaigarh was rampaged by a religious group. Why? Because they assumed Bhansali was distorting historical facts, so they went on to ‘protest’ their way through something that could’ve been discussed in a civil manner.
On a brighter note, the shooting went on after a while and the makers announced 17th of November as the date of release. But recent sources claim that they might postpone the date if deadlines aren’t met.
Hoping to see the trailer any day now, we have our fingers crossed!
The Sanjay Dutt Biopic
This nameless biographical film is set to hit the theatres in March 2018. Raju Hirani has starred Ranbir Kapoor to play Sanjay Dutt, and the actor is leaving no stone unturned to play the part right.
Ever since Ranbir’s pictures dressed as Sanjay Dutt “leaked” on the internet, the audience has lost their calm and want to know more about the biopic including how the makers managed the eerie resemblance.
It apparently took four months of prosthetic (make-up) trials to get the look right.
When Ranbir was asked about his role, he said, “ ..Every time I’d see him (Sanjay Dutt), I’d start observing him like a hawk — the way he scratches his beard, twitches his eye, drinks water, hugs… It’d become a bit of a sickness for me. But that obsession is necessary for acting, or any form of art — that madness to get something right. You may still fall flat on your face, but it’s necessary.”
Kudos to your dedication, Ranbir!
Tiger Zinda Hai
This is Salman’s next big release, a sequel to the 2012 action-film Ek Tha Tiger that starred him and Katrina. The director Ali Abbas Zafar and Salman recently tweeted about finally wrapping up the shoot in Abu Dhabi, claiming that it was a really long schedule.
Based on a RAW agent and a Pakistani spy’s love story, get set to be on the receiving end of a complete Bhai-style action film with lots of guns, a blazing fire and a dhamakedaar climax.
Did you know? This well-awaited sequel had a 20,000-square-metre set built in Abu Dhabi. (Wow!) There’s no trailer from the movie yet and his fans are counting days to its release on 22nd December.
Thugs of Hindostan
This Yash Raj period drama stars a stellar cast that includes Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. All we know so far is that the film is rumoured to be based on sea-pirates, owing to the recent leak of Aamir’s look.
However, Aamir was in denial and simply defined the movie as an ‘action-adventure’. The movie is currently being shot in Malta and Morocco. Yash Raj is quite secretive about other details regarding this film that is slated to release in Diwali 2018.
While twitter went gaga over Aamir’s leaked images and called him Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones; we couldn’t stop drooling over Fatima Sana Shaikh’s avatar as a warrior princess.
There are many more awaited releases this festive season, for instance, Judwaa 2, Bhoomi, Tumhari Sulu and Golmaal Again. Which movie are you excited for? Let us know in the comments below.
