Gangubai Kathiawadi: With Alia Bhatt in probably the boldest and most powerful roles of her career, the film is slated to release in February 2022. Helmed by the legendary Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film has Alia Bhatt playing the role of a brothel owner who turns from Ganga to Gangubai. The teaser had already won us over and this one definitely seems worth the wait.

Shabaash Mithu: Taapsee Pannu has almost made it our habit to see her shouldering some of the most intricate roles all on her own. After power-packed performances in films like – Rashmi Rocket, Haseen Dilruba, and Thappad; the actress is all set to play the former captain of the Indian women's cricket team, Mithali Raj.
