2020 was a slow year for Bollywood as many movies were shelved, paused, and delayed. While we did get some really amazing releases like Thappad and Chhapaak, we mostly had to stick to OTT platforms and series for our entertainment needs. However, 2021 seems to be quite a promising year with a string of trailers and teasers keeping us excited. While many big-banner movies like Bell Bottom and Radhe are all set to hit the theatres soon, we are particularly looking forward to all the upcoming biopics. They boast of a stellar star cast, stories of eminent personalities, and amazing directorial skills. Check out all the biographies that we cannot wait to watch!
We've heard about a lot of these stories since we were kids and now it's time to finally watch them on the big screen...or at our home! All in all, we're sure these biopics will be worth the wait.
If we're talking about the biopics that will release in 2021 then, of course, we have to talk about Gangubai Kathiawadi. Alia Bhatt plays the titular character in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film that will take you back to the 1960s. The movie is about Gangubai, the famous brothel owner from Mumbai's Kamathipura.
The first trailer of the film dropped recently and Alia's powerful avatar has already become the talk of the town.
83 is definitely one of the most-anticipated movies of 2021. It is about one of the most-admired skippers of the Indian Cricket Team, Kapil Dev. And, the character is played by one of the most talented actors of Bollywood--Ranveer Singh. The film would have released back in 2020 itself had it not been for the pandemic. Nevertheless, the movie is now set to release on June 4, 2021.
P.S. DeepVeer fans are in for a treat this time because Deepika Padukone will be playing Ranveer's wife in the movie!
This multilingual film is based on the life of the late actress and politician, J. Jayalalithaa. The character will be played by the very talented Kangana Ranaut. The Tanu Weds Manu actress had to undergo extreme transformations for the movie and her resemblance to the late politician is definitely uncanny!
The movie will release on June 26, 2021.
The name of Captain Vikram Batra comes up whenever there's a mention of the Kargil War that India won against Pakistan in 1999. The brave officer received a Param Vir Chakra, India's highest and most prestigious award for valour. He led one of the toughest warfare operations in Indian history and was martyred in 1999.
Sidharth Malhotra will be playing the character of Captain Batra in Shershah and the movie will release on July 2, 2021. The movie will also be the first to star the rumoured couple, Kiara Advani and Sidharth together.
Maidan is another sports biopic based on the life of a football coach Syed Abdul Rahim. Ajay Devgan will play the lead character and the movie will capture the golden era of football--from 1952 to 1962. The movie is all set to release on October 15, 2021.
