There are many Bollywood celebs from Sunny Deol, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar to Ayushmann Khurrana. Whose sequels of many films are ready, while there are some stars whose sequels are in the pipeline and are getting ready to be made soon. There are not two or four but 12 films in the list. Now there is a list of 12 sequel films, so it would not be wrong to say that once again the trend of sequel has started in Bollywood. After the success of these films, the makers are spending crores of rupees on their sequels.
In this list of 12 films, some films are going to be released this year and it is being speculated that some films will be released in the coming 2-3 years. Trade pundits of Bollywood believe that 2023 and 2024 is going to be an extended season of franchise films and movie universe.
Is there a dearth of good ideas in Bollywood?
Are sequels the answer to 100 percent guarantee franchise success? Is there a dearth of good ideas in Bollywood? Or has the treasury of originality become empty? Are the viewers preferring to see only familiar characters? This question is because there is a line of sequel films and the audience is not enjoying much in the new Bollywood that is being served.
Crores are engaged on franchise films
Talking to Times of India on this issue, trade analyst Atul Mohan said that many film studios are currently planning several sequels. Sequel of 10 to 12 films is ready to be made. Some have been confirmed and for some official announcements are awaited. This year, we will get to see four much-awaited franchise films including Tiger 3, Gadar 2, Yaariyan 2, Dream Girl 2. Crores of rupees are at stake on these franchise films.
Will the formula be a hit or a flop?
In the same conversation, trade analyst Komal Nahata said that it has always been seen that makers make sequels to capitalize on the success of superhit films. Sometimes this formula becomes a hit and sometimes it flops. With the sequel of every hit film, the expectations of the audience increase further. Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathan became a super duper hit. That’s why there is speculation about its sequel. The reason behind this is that the sequel has the advantage of getting the already earned audience. This thing is different, if the sequel does not do well, then later the film’s earnings decline. But the initial collection of movies is seen strong.
Success rate of sequel movies is high
On the other hand, Raj Bansal believes that the success rate of sequel movies has always been high. The guarantee of doing well for the film is somewhere in the mind of the makers.
These sequels are in line
Both Tiger 3 and Gadar 2 are going to be released soon, about which there is a lot of buzz. Apart from this, there is speculation about the making of Akshay Kumar and John Abraham’s film Desi Boyz 2 along with Yaariyan 2, Dream Girl 2. Apart from this, Hera Pheri 4, Welcome 2, Awara Pagal Deewana 2, Aashiqui 3, Pathan 2, Bhool Bhulaiya 2 are also included in the list.
