Rock On!! 2, Golmaal Again: 11 sequels, coming up!

Last updated on: September 21, 2016 18:01 IST

Which one are *you* looking forward to?

The fourth installment of the Raaz series released recently, but unfortunately, did not see the same success as the previous movies.

But whatever its box office fate may have been, there are quite a few sequels coming up.

Here's taking a look.

 

Rock On!! 2
Box office collection: Rock On!!: Rs 25 crore

Rock On!! was a decent success when it released in 2008, and is actually the only rock band musical to have done such kind of business in India.

The film's sequel is arriving with Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli reprising their part, and Shraddha Kapoor adding to the mix.

Over the years, Rock On!! and its songs have managed to earn a cult status. One expects nothing less from the sequel.

Force was a modest success. The John Abraham and Genelia D'Souza starrer boasted of some never-seen-before action. 

John and his new leading lady Sonakshi Sinha have kicked butt in Rocky Handsome and Akira respectively. They may take the action in Force 2 to the next level.

Tum Bin 2
Box office collection: Tum Bin: Rs 5 crore

A sweet little musical, this Anubhav Sinha directorial took on Amitabh Bachchan's Aks at the box office and succeeded when it released in 2001. 

The second film in the franchise is also being made by Anubhav, and one expects a similar saccharine quotient in it. The film stars Neha Sharma, Aditya Seal and Ashim Gulati.

Kahaani 2
Box office collection: Kahaani: Rs 59 crore

There are hardly any films that open with Rs 3 crore collections and go on to enjoy a lifetime count of nearly Rs 60 crore. Vidya Balan's Kahaani is one such film, thanks to its compelling story.

Sujoy Ghosh is now directing making the film's sequel with Vidya again, and one expects yet another nail-biting suspense thriller in the offering.

A new action hero was born when Vidyut Jamwal starred in Commando. His muscles and action moves was a big hit with the younger generation.

Vidyut hasn't done many films since then, and the sequel arrives with good timing. This time, Vidyut has two leading ladies: Adah Sharma and Esha Gupta.

Commando 2 is the first release of 2017.

One of the most awaited sequels of 2017, Baahubali: The Conclusion will finally answer the question on everyone's lips after they watched the first part: 'Why did Katappa kill Baahubali?'

A magnum opus by SS Rajamouli, the film's first part did huge business in Hindi, despite being a dubbed version of the original Telugu film.

It's the biggest film of 2017 when it comes to sheer star power. Robot 2.0 has Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar coming together for the first time ever.

Director Shankar has an eye for grand visuals and high action drama. Add some good music, and this venture will be a multi-crore, big screen experience.

When released way back in 2002, Amitabh Bachchan led Aankhen to success.

Vipul Shah made his debut as a director with this heist thriller, which had an interesting concept of three blind men -- Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal and Paresh Rawal -- coming together with the Big B and Sushmita Sen to loot a bank.

Now that Anees Bazmee is helming the film's sequel, the stakes have indeed gone higher.

Amitabh Bachchan and Arjun Rampal stay on in the cast but Akshay makes way for Anil Kapoor and Arshad Warsi.
