2014 will be a joyous year for Bollywood as a variety of quality films are lining up to set the Box Office on fire. All big stars of Bollywood, obsessed with the high of 100 crore clubs, are planning mega releases for their films in 2014. From Salman to John Abraham, every Superstar in Bollywood is geared up for their future Blockbusters that could skyrocket their brand value to a whole new level. Let's take a look at Bollywood's mega projects of 2014.
Salman's Jai Ho
Jai Ho is an upcoming film of Salman Khan, directed by his brother Sohail Khan. This latest flick of Dabangg Khan is, again, a remake of a Telugu film Stalin that featured Chiranjeevi. Bollywood trusts this film like how scientists trust physics! A lot of expectation is running on this high octane action film. First of them must be breaking the first week collection record made by Aamir Khan's Dhoom 3. Jai Ho also made history in terms of its first look poster design. It could be the first time in the history of Indian cinema, a super star asking his fans to design a poster for his latest flick. Jai Ho trailer and song teaser also created quite a wave among fans and the film, sure, is going to be a Blockbuster.
Another Telugu remake of Salman Khan, Kick, will be directed by producer turned director, Sajid Nadiadwala. It is also set to release on the auspicious day of Eid. In Telugu, Reviteja did the funny lead role of the film and it was a runaway hit in Andhra.
Aamir Khan's most ambitious project of the year, P.K, will be Raj Kumar Hirani's take on godmen and commercialized spirituality. The duo's first film together was the hilarious 3 Idiots which is the first film that touched the 200 crore mark in Bollywood box office.
Happy New Year
Shahrukh Khan welcomes the new year with another mega project, Happy New Year, which is directed by Farah Khan. The Chennai Express couple Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone will be seen romancing each other once again in Happy New Year. While this is Farah Khan's chance to recreate the whopping success of a Om Shanti Om, fans expect this film to beat all the collection records of Dhoom 3.
Bollywood's King Khan plays a fan boy in his upcoming film fan. Country's biggest superstar playing a fan boy in a film sound like an irony, isn't it ? This Yash Raj Film is King Khan's tribute to his fans who is responsible for making him what he is today !
Akshay Kumar is in a sincere attempt to get back into form this year through a few carefully chosen films. Its Entertainment, written by Farhad-Sajid, the Chennai Express writers are all set to wield the gramophone for the first time with this film. The movie, produced by Tips, is expected to be 100 crore grosser in its first week itself.
The upcoming Aneez Bazmi film, Welcome Back, is a sequel of Akshay Kumar's 2007 film Welcome. The trio, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal, who contributed much to make this akshay kumar film a laugh riot, will be seen again in Welcome Back. To add more gilts to the fun package, John Abraham and Shruthi Haasan are also invited to the project but the news is yet to be confirmed.
Movies, tanned brown in rustic flavours, strike gold in box office, nowadays. While Dabangg started the trend, Gangs of Wasseypur, a very different movie in its style and treatment, continued to prove the theory right and its lesser counterparts such as Ishaqzaade and now Gunday is continuing the tradition. Gunday, blended with the old Amitabh Bachchan action films' sensibility, is Yash Raj Films' trump card in the beginning of the year with a bunch of relatively fresh faces in the cast list.
