The coming months promise to be loaded with entertainment, especially since all filmmakers are making a beeline for theatrical releases with a long list of movies. And the good news is, there is something for everyone. A film like Mission Majnu is sure to excite the fans of the action-thriller genre.  Moreover, there is also a historical drama — Prithviraj and a complete family entertainer — Jug Jugg Jeeyo to enthral the family audience. So, block your dates now.

PRITHVIRAJ

Release Date: June 3, 2022
Directed by: Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi
Starring: Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Sonu Sood, Introducing - Manushi Chhillar, Manav Vij, Ashutosh Rana, Sakshi Tanwar

Akshay Kumar takes the lead as the fearless King Prithviraj Chauhan in this highly-anticipated historical drama Prithviraj. Helmed by Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the film is based on the life of the warrior king Prithviraj Chauhan and promises to be a colossal affair. The film also marks the debut of the Miss World beauty Manushi Chhillar. Commenting about the film, Akshay said in a statement, “This is our tribute to his (Prithviraj) heroism and his life. He is a legend; he is one of the bravest warriors and he is one of the most upright kings that our country has ever seen. We hope that Indians worldwide love our salute to this mighty braveheart. We have tried to present his life story in the most authentic way possible and the film is a homage to his unmatched bravery and courage.” Watching the versatile actor transform himself into a great warrior may prove to be one of the most appealing aspects of the film.

MISSION MAJNU
Release date: June 10, 2022

Also arriving in June is another Spy-thriller Mission Majnu, which is inspired by real events set in the 1970s. Headlined by Sidharth Malhotra, the film reportedly follows the story of India's most courageous mission in the heart of Pakistan that forever changed the relationship between the two nations. The film also marks the Bollywood debut of the South sensation Rashmika Mandanna, who was recently seen in the Telugu blockbuster Pushpa. Speaking about the film, the Shershaah actor said, “This is a film inspired by true events. It's about an important mission that RAW did. It is more of a thriller than action. This is the first time I am playing a spy agent but it is not a James Bond character.” Exciting!
