The year 2012 saw a lot of south remakes, sequels and unconventional movies dominating the Hindi film industry.

In a special series, we look at the prominent production houses, and their line-up for 2013.
We start with Yash Raj Films. Take a look.

Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra will reprise their respective roles in this film that promises some great action. The first schedule in Chicago has been completed.
Scheduled for a Christmas release, Dhoom 3 will be the first Indian film to be released on IMAX screens.
