MUMBAI : In 2022, sequels like Badhaai Do, Heropanti 2, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Khuda Haafiz: Chapter 2 – Agni Pariksha, Ek Villain Returns, and Drishyam 2 hit the big screens. Only Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Drishyam 2 left a mark at the box office, and the others were flops.
Now, in 2023 as well, many Bollywood sequels are going to hit the big screens, but will they be able to make a mark at the box office? Well, check out the list of sequels below…
In 2001, Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel were seen together in Gadar: Ek Prem Katha which was a blockbuster at the box office. After 22 years of its release, the makers are coming up with a sequel to the film. Recently, Zee Studios shared a video in which they showed a glimpse of Gadar 2, and Sunny Deol is seen picking up a cartwheel in it, and the glimpse has gone viral. However, even the masses have changed their taste, so if Gadar 2 is a well-made film, we can expect it to be a hit at the box office.
One of the most awaited films of the year is Tiger 3. The Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Emraan Hashmi starrer is slated to release on Diwali this year. It’s one of the most successful Bollywood franchises, and Tiger 3 is a movie that everyone is expecting will break records at the box office.
Despite getting negative reviews, Divya Khosla Kumar’s first directorial Yaariyan was a hit at the box office.
