It's going to be Akshay Kumar versus John Abraham all over again this year, with Akki's Mission Mangal arriving alongside John's Batla House.

They shared the same weekend last year as well, with Gold and Satyamev Jayate. Both films did well.

Mission Mangal is special, as it deals with India's space journey.

It also has quite a few leading ladies, including Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen. The cast includes Sharman Joshi.

 

Chhichhore
Release date: August 30
 

Producer Sajid Nadiadwala ropes in Dangal director Nitish Tiwari for this film starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Sharma, Prateik Babbar and Tahir Raj Bhasin. 

The Chhichhore poster looks like a lot of fun.

 

Bala
Release date: September

Ayushmann Khurrana has been consistent at the box office with back-to-back hits, and has interesting films coming up.

Among them is Dinesh Vijan and Amar Kaushik's Bala.

The producer-director combo, who had last delivered a blockbuster in Stree, is now telling the story of a man suffering from premature hair loss.

The film reunites Ayushmann with his Dum Laga Ke Haisha leading lady, Bhumi Pednekar.

 

Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s next
Release date: October 2

Director Siddharth Anand had directed Hrithik Roshan in Bang Bang and the duo are now coming up with another stylish entertainer.

Tiger Shroff adds to the cast.

The shooting is on and one expects a high-octane affair with the kind of entertainment a big screen viewing warrants.

 

Marjaavaan
Release date: October 2

Director Milap Zaveri silenced his critics with a hit in Satyameva Jayate.

Now, he will bring together the Ek Villain team of Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh for Marjaavaan

The film also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Tara Sutaria.

A word of caution: Riteish will play a dwarf villain. Hopefully, he will have better luck than Shah Rukh Khan did in Zero.

 

Housefull 4
Release date: October 25

Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the fourth installment in the Housefull series will be directed by Farhad Samji.

While Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh stay on, Bobby Deol joins them with Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde.

Cast member Nana Patekar has reportedly been dropped after the #MeToo allegations against him.

2018 ended with a pleasant announcement that Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty will team up for Sooryavanshi.

The Simmba director seems to like his heroes as cops; Akki plays one as well.

Let's hope the year ends well with Shetty's next Christmas gift to his fans.
