As a movie buff, I have high hopes for 2018 and what changes it is going to bring in the modern day Hindi cinema. And why should I not be excited about it? With big releases like Padmavat, Padman, and many others, 2018 is going to mark a grand opening in terms of big banner creations, commercial successes and overall user experience for people who literally live cinema.
There are a lot of promising actors who are going to mark a beginning of their acting career with amazing films like Gold, Dhadak, and Raazi. From pre-existing actors of television commercials to star kids to some fresh faces, here's what Bollywood is going to witness this year.
Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan is all set to make her Bollywood debut in 2018 opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in Abhishek Kapoor's Kedarnath.
The film will hit the theatres on December 21, 2018.
Shoojit Sircar's upcoming film October will have Varun Dhawan alongside debutante Banita Sandhu who hails from the United Kingdom.
Banita has also starred in an advertisement directed by Shoojit before.
After a lot of rumours regarding Sushant Singh Rajput's ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande's Bollywood debut, the final name and dates are here.
Ankita will make her debut with Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika which will release on April 27, 2018. Ankita will be seen playing the role of Jhalkaribai who was the right hand of Rani Laxmibai aka Manikarnika.
Yes, famous television show Naagin fame actress Mouni Roy will make her Bollywood debut this year and she is going to share the screen space with none other than Akshay Kumar in his sports drama film Gold which will be based on the life of hockey player Balbir Singh Dosanjh.
Janhvi has been in the limelight ever since her Bollywood debut with the film Dhadak was announced. But, here you go, another confirmation on the same. The film will witness its release on July 6, 2018, and I can't wait to see the magic that Janhvi is going to create on the screen.
Karwan is a comedy film which will also be Dulquer Salmaan's debut film. It is directed by Akash Khurana and produced by Ronnie Screwvala. Dulquer has created his magic and also rules a lot of hearts in the South Indian film industry but it will be interesting to see what experiments he is going to do with his first Bollywood film. The film's date is yet to be announced.
Dulquer's co-star from Karwan is none other than internet's sensation Mithila Palkar who shot to fame with various YouTube web series like Girl In The City and Little Things and a supporting role in Katti Batti. Mithila is all set to make her debut in a lead role. The film will also star Irrfan Khan.
Not many of you must be knowing that Ishaan is Shahid Kapoor's brother.
I have always been a big Shahid Kapoor fan, and now I am damn eager to see his brother's performance on the screen. Let's hope that this Kapoor kid makes the remake of a Marathi film Sairat a worth watching piece.
Salman Khan's sister Arpita had announced it much earlier that her husband Aayush Sharma is going to make his Bollywood debut and I had been waiting for the details ever since then.
Well, Aayush will make his debut with Loveratri. The film will also mark the directorial debut of Abhiraj Minawala who has previously assisted in films like Fan, Sultan and Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
