From Alia Bhatt to Aamir Khan: 8 Stars and Their Blockbuster Films in 2020

Planning what to watch this year? Here are eight big releases starring A-list stars that are likely to set the box office on fire

Okay, we know. The year 2020 has started on a terrible note for Bollywood. In all of January and February there was only one super-hit, and  that  was the Ajay Devgan-helmed Tanhaji. Amidst a slew of disappointments, we can assure you the year has several biggies lined up. Here’s looking at the biggest hits of the year.

Baaghi 3:

Tiger Shroff

I don’t know how and when it happened.  But Tiger Shroff is now the biggest action hero since Hrithik Roshan. Baaghi 3 will be proof of Tiger’s titanic stardom. Producer Sajid Nadiadwala promises action like never before that will leave fans of the Baaghi  franchise stunned and hankering for more. Shot in the virgin locales of Serbia (doubling up as Syria) this one is going to knock the bottom out of  the action genre. Shradha  Kapoor, Tiger’s soulmate from the first Baaghi film, is back with him. Releasing on 6 March.


Akshay Kumar

Bollywood’s most reliable star-actor a.k.a Akki The Complete Package, Akshay Kumar teams up with super-director Rohit Shetty for the first time for a proposed franchise. Akshay plays the upright no-nonsense  cop, very different  from Ajay Devgan’s Rohit Shetty-helmed Singham. Again, it is an out-and-out actioner with Akshay’s  old co-star (and by old, we  are not saying anything about her age) Katrina Kaif who has also performed daring stunts apart from giving her guy some romantic company. (Releasing 25 March).


Ranveer Singh

Sports drama meets  bio-pic, Ranveer Singh meets Kabir Khan and Ranveer meets his wife Deepika Padukone again after Padmaavat. Gosh, are you still reading this? Or have you rushed to book your tickets already? 83 is both a chronicle of  India’s cricket victory at  the 1983 World Cup and a bio-pic of the captain of the cricket team Kapil Dev played by Ranveer. Ranveer’s wife Deepika plays Kapil Dev’s wife Romi. Nice bit of credible casting there. Releasing 10 April.


Salman Khan

Salman  Khan and Eid are as inseparable as Akshay Kumar and patriotic weekends. Radhe is a cop drama directed  by Prabhudheva, it’s  the unofficial sequel to Salman-Prabhu’s  Wanted  in 2008. Why unofficial sequel? Because Salman is  no longer on talking terms with the Wanted producer Boney Kapoor. Why are they not talking? Never mind. What matters is that Radhe will bring back the angry cop,  jo ek baar commitment  kar liya toh kisiki nahin sunta. Sirf boxoffice ki sunta hai. Releasing  22 May.

Gangubai Kathiawadi:

Alia Bhatt

Sanjay Leela Bhansali teams up with Alia Bhatt to tell the  real-life story of the Mumbai ganglord rather, ganglady who shook the  underworld. No songs, no romance, no hanky-panky for Alia. It’s a complete change of  image for the popular actress, and also for the director whose costume dramas had begun to look disturbingly déjà vu. This year the female heroes are not working at the box-office. Taapsee Pannu in Thappad and Alia Bhatt in this  film are likely to change that. Releasing 11 September.


Farhan Akhtar

Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra gave us one of India’s finest sports  films in  Bhaag Milkha  Bhaag, the story of Olympian sprinter  Milkha Singh. This time they are back together for another sports drama, this time a fictional saga of a  boxer. Going by Farhan’s dedicated  preparation  for  the  role, this could be Farhan’s own version  of Robert de Niro’s Raging Bull. Releasing on 2 October


Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt

Karan Johar’s most expensive  production to date brings the real-life Jodi  of Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor together  for the first time. Ranbir’s  bestie Ayan Mukerjee directs what is being touted as  Indian cinema’s  first sci-fi  drama. The mighty Amitabh Bachchan in his second feature this year (the first being the fascinating Gulabo Sitabo on 17 April) who adores Ranbir’s craft,  plays a pivotal role. Oh  yes, Shah  Rukh Khan has a guest appearance in the mother of  all multi-starrers. Releasing  4 December.

Lal Singh Chadha:

Aamir Khan

And  finally Aamir Khan and Christmas. Need I say anything more? I am not very sure if we actually need an Indian version of  the Tom Hanks classic Forrest Gump. But  then Aamir the master strategist thinks Forrest Gump alias,  Lal Singh Chadha is just the healing message on humanism that our wounded civilization needs. Kareena Kapoor Khan who doesn’t mind doing small roles with  the three Khan superstars (her husband, the fourth Khan, and she  have decided not to work together for now) joins Aamir. Contrary to rumours, Mr Hanks is  not making an appearance. But who cares? Will Smith was in  Student Of  The Year 2 and how did it make  a difference? Aamir needs no  props. Thanks, but no Hanks. Releasing 25 December.
