Biopics To Look Forward This Year
If there’s anything Bollywood taught us, it is, if you thought your imagination was quite great, then think again. Biopics as a genre are changing the way people look at those who became great personalities in life and through the years, movies like Sanju and Gold were some of the really well made movies. As the year 2019 progresses, here’s taking a look at some of the most interesting biopics to look forward to this year:
1. Super 30
Returning to the silver screen after a gap of nearly two years, Hrithik Roshan is all set to make a comeback with a biopic based on the life of Anand Kumar, a professor who gave underprivileged students the hope to dream. This Bahl directorial is all set to hit the screens on 26th January, 2019.
Late Gulshan Kumar, now known for founding the game changer of the Bollywood industry, T Series, had a very unglamorous childhood. A man who revolutionised the way Indian music industry functioned in the 1980s, Gulshan Kumar led quite a thrilling life. Mogul maps this man’s journey from the other side of tracks to being one of the most successful people in the country, to being shot outside a temple in Mumbai in the year 1997. This film’s release was originally scheduled for 2018, but due to various issues, the lead, Akshay Kumar, exited the project, causing the release date to be postponed to Christmas 2019.
After the release of all the controversies surrounding the life of Bal Thackeray in the book titled An Ordinary Life: A Memoir, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to play the role of Bal Thackeray in this film based on his life! Tracing the life of Thackeray’s journey from being a cartoonist, to being a politician who changed the face of the political scene in Maharashtra, Thackeray is going to be an eye opener. Initially scheduled to hit the screens in December last year, the film is now expected to hit the screens on Thackeray’s birthday this year!
4. Jhalki, Ek Aur Bachpan
Based on the life of Kailash Satyarthi, a man who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, Jhalki Ek Aur Bachpan will bring to life the story of a girl who is on the hunt of her brother. While Boman Irani plays Kailash in this film, the film also maps the journey of how he saves over 83,000 children, including more than 144 girls! Jhalki, Ek Aur Bachpan is scheduled to hit the screens this year!
With so many biopics releasing this year, picking just one biopic is going to be hard. What movie are you waiting for the most? Comment and let us know!

4. All about the Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga poster
While it’s already exciting to watch Sonam Kapoor and Anil Kapoor share screen space for the first time, the plot in itself is quite intriguing. What makes things all the more enticing is that since the very first poster, not a lot of information about the film could be garnered till the trailer and the first song were dropped. Check out the poster here to take a look for yourself!

5. Anupam Kher from The Accidental Prime Minister
Based on a memoir about the life of former Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh, The Accidental Prime Minister created a lot of furor since the moment the film was announced. With all the controversies surrounding this particular film, the uncanny resemblance between Anupam Kher and Manmohan Singh in the first look poster makes the film all the more exciting. While the first look poster itself was impressive, the movie promises to be quite a gripping one!

Irrfan Khan’s Birthday – Looking At The Actor’s Best Performances
Irrfan Khan, an actor who always steps out of his comfort zone to deliver his best performances time and time again, turns 52 years old today. As the actor turns a year older, here’s celebrating the man’s birthday by taking a look at some of his best performances, a feat which put him on the list of the best actors in Bollywood.
1. The Lunchbox
Playing the role of a retired man who falls in love with a woman in a loveless marriage, Irrfan Khan’s performance in this particular movie was simple, beautiful and just right. With old fashioned romance acting as the theme of this particular film, the story of The Lunchbox showed how two polar opposites fall in love in the strangest way possible and had an open ending left to the interpretation of the audience. Irrfan Khan received a standing ovation for his acting in The Lunchbox at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival!
2. Life In A Metro
Not known for his presence in commercial movies, Irrfan Khan broke the mold of roles he portrayed, through his role in Life In A Metro. Playing the role of Monty, a man who lived life in the moment, Irrfan Khan stuck true to his character and pulled off this role with finesse and ease. Not only was his performance one of the best ones in this particular movie, it also won him the Filmfare Award for being the Best Supporting Actor!
3. Life Of Pi
Although Ayush Patel (the younger Pi in Life of Pi,) played a serious role to perfection, it was Irrfan Khan’s role as the older Pi which stood out. Even though Irrfan Khan had only a 10 to 15 minutes long presence in this movie, he acted so well, there were talks about him being nominated for the Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars.
4. Yeh Saali Zindagi
Perhaps one of the biggest selling points Irrfan Khan has as an actor is to play most of his roles with a hint of sarcasm and seriousness at the same time, which hasn’t been matched by other people yet. This fact is more than proven by his performance in Yeh Saali Zindagi, especially in the way he has conversations with Saurabh Shukla. Yeh Saali ZIndagi is perhaps one of Irrfan Khan’s best performances to date and sets him apart in a way like never before.
Sticking to the theme of the Aarushi Talwar controversy and death case, this particular film was an Irrfan Khan movie through and through. By portraying the role of a cop trying really hard to stick to the letter of the law, Irrfan Khan’s performance was raw, real and to the point.
Here’s wishing Irrfan Khan an extremely happy birthday! What’s your favourite Irrfan Khan movie? Comment and let us know!

From new movies to new pairs, there is a lot of new things happening in the film industry. Check out the list of really cool new onscreen Bollywood pairs to watch out for in 2019!
1. Athiya Shetty and Nawazuddin Siddiqui
While Nawazuddin Siddiqui impressed everyone with his brilliant performances in 2018 with movies like Manto and Thackeray, Athiya Shetty is yet to make her Bollywood debut. The year 2019 not only marks this young lady’s debut in the industry, it also opens the doors to a new lead in the upcoming film Motichoor Chaknachoor. Just like Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s other movies, this one looks to be quite promising as well!
2. Nushrat Bharucha and Rajkummar Rao
Remember how Nushrat Bharucha impressed everyone with her amazing performance in the box office super hit film Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety? While not much was seen of her in the last year, 2019 is going to be different. What makes things so much better is the gorgeous lady will be paired opposite none other than Rajkummar Rao, one of the most talented actors in the industry right now! Nushrat and Rajkummar are going to star together in their first ever film, Turram Khan and although this is the fifth time Rajkummar Rao will be working with director Hansal Mehta, this is going to be Nushrat’s first time with the filmmaker as well!
3. Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor
Both Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor had a really busy 2018. While Sushant Singh Rajput was last seen in Kedarnath (an intense love story set against the Uttarakhand flash floods,) Shraddha Kapoor was last seen in Stree, both box office successes! Now, both the actors are all set to come together with a brand new comedy in the form of Chhichhore. With two superstars and a brand new comedy movie, this pair is going to be exciting to watch on the silver screen!
4. Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani
Kabir Singh is perhaps the most talked about film of 2019. Kabir Singh is the Bollywood remake of Arjun Reddy, the Tollywood blockbuster which broke all records when it released. While Shahid is a star in his own right, Kabir Singh will be the first film, wherein he will play the lead role. Looking at the stupendous success that was Arjun Reddy, it is going to be truly exciting to see how the Bollywood version of this particular movie is going to turn out.
5. Mouni Roy and Rajkummar Rao
When Mouni Roy made her Bollywood debut in Akshay Kumar’s Gold, she took the Bollywood world by storm with her brilliant acting skills. With a host of interesting movies of hers to look forward to this year, one of the most exciting ones to keep a look out for is Made In China, a movie where she’ll be starring opposite Rajkummar Rao. From the looks of all the posters of this film, the two make quite an adorable pair together and it will be exciting to see them come together on the silver screen for the first time ever!
With so many fresh onscreen pairs, Bollywood is going to be filled with a lot of new things this year. Which pair are you looking forward to watching onscreen this year? Comment and let us know!
Top 5 Bollywood Actresses Of 2018
As the year 2018 comes to a close, it is only fitting to take a look at all the great movies and the amazing performances delivered by Bollywood’s actors and actresses during the last year. While the movies were brilliant in every way, what stood out the most were the women who ruled the roost in Bollywood in 2018. Check out the list of the top five Bollywood actresses of 2018 here!
1. Alia Bhatt
When Alia Bhatt made her debut with Karan Johar’s Student of The Year, little did we know the Indian cinema was going to get a new face and a brand new actress with talent to the boot. While this young starlet coming into her own with movies like Highway, Dear Zindagi and 2 States, 2018 saw Alia bloom into a bright new flower with Raazi! Without too much drama and the right amount of attention to detail to the character, everything about Alia’s performance in Raazi was extremely captivating! Definitely one of the finest performances by this lady to date!
2. Deepika Padukone
While Padmaavat was an amazingly well made movie, Deepika Padukone’s acting was brilliant. Playing the role of Rani Padmavati, a queen who goes above and beyond to protect her husband’s and her honour, Deepika Padukone was all grace and perfection. Not many can do justice to a role filled with such intensity and still make a mark on their own. Definitely worth the wait, Deepika Padukone’s acting in this movie was praised for months after the film released.
3. Taapsee Pannu
The year 2018 was Taapsee Pannu’s year. From Mulk to Manmarziyaan, every movie this particular actress was a part of did really, really well! From playing a Hindu lawyer fighting for a Muslim in Mulk, to playing a girl who is coming into her own and finding herself through love in Manmarziyaan, every movie Taapsee was in, showed how amazing an actress she is!
4. Neena Gupta
Although the men in Badhaai Ho had the most lines, Neena Gupta played her character to perfection. While she still played the demure housewife struggling with the idea of having a baby at an old age, Neena Gupta played every role so well, her acting was a treat to watch!
5. Anushka Sharma
Last but not the least, Anushka Sharma surprised everyone by moving away from the normal roles she has played so far. Playing the role of a victim of abuse in an otherwise mediocre movie which was Pari, Anushka Sharma stood strong purely through her acting skills. Definitely one of Anushka’s finer performances to date!
With the year 2019 bringing new faces, it should be interesting to see if the new crop of actresses can outshine this year’s actresses. Who was your favourite actress in 2018? Comment and let us know!
