Though Salman Khan's Jai Ho has been in news even before the film was announced, it's surprising that the first teaser is yet to come out, as the film is scheduled to release next month. 

The superstar has delivered five back-to-back blockbusters and there's an air of secrecy around this action film.

Directed by brother Sohail Khan, let's wait and watch what the Khan brothers have in store for us.

Release date: January 24

For director Ali Abbas Zafar, this is a complete departure from the candyfloss cinema that he created with Imran-Katrina-Ali starrer Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.

Release date: February 14

There is much expectations from the kind of action that will be on display in Singham 2, a film that brings back the blockbuster pair of Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty.

An official remake of Tom Cruise starrer Knight and Day, this Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif starrer has been seeing quite a few challenges as far as the shoot is concerned. Hrithik injured himself while shooting for the film and had to undergo a brain surgery.

The shooting schedules have gone off again, as the actor is currently in London for medical reasons.

Director Siddharth Anand has a task at hand to try something so extraordinary that it surpasses the action in the original. With Hrithik here, it should be possible.

Release date: October 2
