Critically acclaimed director Nitesh Tiwari is returning with his next big flick ‘Bawaal’, starring Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor in the leads. The film that is mounted on a big budget is reportedly gearing up for an April 7, 2023 release. The release coincides with Good Friday, thus ensuring success with an extended weekend.
Meanwhile, buzz is that the gangster-thriller starring Prabhas, ‘Salaar’, will arrive a week later on April 14.
Interestingly, the date coincides with Ambedkar Jayanti, thus ensuring another extended weekend. Although there has been no official confirmation on the same, a date announcement will take place soon, states a report on Pinkvilla.
While April holds a lot of promise, May assures fireworks at the box office with the release of films like Salman Khan’s ‘Tiger 3’ and also Allu Arjun’s ‘Pushpa 2’. Salman will reclaim his dominance over the ticket windows on the extended Eid holiday. Besides seeing the hunk reunite with Katrina Kaif onscreen, the film will also feature some high octane sequences of the superstar with Shah Rukh Khan. Directed by Maneesh Sharma the film will reportedly see Emraan Hashmi as the antagonist.
Allu Arjun, who rocked the box office with the release of his film ‘Pushpa’ will be back with its sequel next year. While the film goes on the floors in June, the makers are contemplating on making it the big summer blockbuster towards the end of May, states the report.
Also joining the lineup is the highly anticipated Marvel superhero film ‘Guardians Of Galaxy 3’ that is currently on course for a May 5 release. Post the success of the recent Marvel releases, considering that this will be the last of the ‘GOTG’ franchise, it may just draw quite the audience.
According to the report, an Akshay Kumar film is also eyeing a release around the same time.
If all the movies stick to their release dates, the audience will be in for a treat all summer long.
