The year 2015 looks promising with its range of movies to hit celluloid. However this can also be said as year of sequels as 5 major releases are lined up to regale the audience with its next parts. From Baburao Ganpatrao Apte (Hera Pheri) to Ajay Mehra (Ghayal) to Tanu and Manu (Tanu Weds Manu), these popular characters are geared up to cast their magic on the silver screen again.
Here are 5 Bollywood sequels that we are looking forward to see in 2015.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns: Kangna Ranaut and R Madhavan’s unusual onscreen pair in 2011 made many hearts flutter with their adorable chemistry and the popular jodi is back with the sequel Tanu Weds Manu Returns. And, the fans are waiting with bated breath to see how their story has evolved after four years of marriage. Yes! the sequel is set four years after the two tie the knot in the last film. What makes the sequel all the more exciting is the fact that Kangna will be seen in a double role. This time the vivacious Tanu will share the story with tomboy Datto. Directed by Aanand L Rai, the film is slated to be released on June 12 and will also see Dhanush in a pivotal role.
ABCD 2: When a choreographer turns into a director, the chances are most likely that the film will be about dance. Remo D’Souza made his directorial debut with ABCD: Anybody Can Dance in 2013 starring Prabhu Deva and a bunch of dancers. Despite no big stars, the film turned out to be a huge hit at the box office. And D’Souza is now back with his dancing stars but with a twist. He included Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor in the cast of his sequel ABCD 2. If D’Souza can mint money without stars then the addition of the two has definitely raised the expectations of the audiences. The film is slated to be released on June 19.
Welcome Back: It’s not easy to step into the shoes of Akshay Kumar especially when it’s a comedy. But John Abraham has taken the challenge and the actor will be seen tickling a few funny bones (or we think so) in Anees Bazmee’s Welcome Back. The sequel to 2007 laugh riot will also see Amitabh Bachchan replace late Feroz Khan and the fans are eagerly waiting for the film.
Hera Pheri 3: It’s been 15 years since Baburao Ganpatrao Apte and his antics made fans laugh their hearts out and the makers are not ready to hang up the boots. The third film in the Hera Pheri series will hit the theatres this year with John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan joining the original star cast. Directed By Neeraj Vohra, the film will take off from where Phir Hera Pheri ended.
Ghayal Returns: Sunny Deol’s Ghayal became a huge hit in the early 90s and the story of a boxer seeking revenge for the murder of his brother struck the right chord with the audiences. Be it the dialogues or the action scenes, Ghayal has always been on top of any Sunny Deol fan’s list. And after 25 years, Sunny Deol is bringing back the sequel to the film. The actor will play an encounter specialist and is already shooting for the film.
