Bollywood Upcoming Film 2016: That Should Be Earmarked On Your Calendar This Year



The first quarter of the year is already over and it’ll be safe to say that 2016 has been a mixed bag for Bollywood so far. While Fitoor, Wazir, Sanam Re and Ghayal Once Again gave Bollywood a hard time, movies like Airlift and Neerja brought real life incidents to life on the silver screen and won many hearts. With Kapoor & Sons, we saw a very unlikely Bollywood family drama where emotions were underplayed yet beautifully performed.

But as they say, picture abhi baaki hai mere dost! There are 9 months still to go and a lot of highly anticipated films to watch out for.

Here are 10 films that should be earmarked on your calendar this year:

From releasing the title track in multiple languages to SRK interacting with his fans all over the world, Fan has surely become the film to watch out for. The trailer of the film was an instant hit and it looks like this performance by King Khan will wipe out Dilwale and Happy New Year from his fans’ memory.
