Farhan Akhtar doesn’t need to brag about his acting skills, and he is definitely the right person, to play the intense role of Olympic athlete, Milkha Singh. Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra is known for his reality check in the Indian cinema, and so Bhag Milkha Bhag is definitely worth waiting for.

9. Chennai Express
Cast: Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Sathyaraj, Manorama
Rohit Shetty is bored of clowning comedy and is now trying his hands on romance. What could be a better choice than Shahrukh for a romance flick! The film is going to be a romantic story set in a train. It’d be definitely fun to watch Shahrukh get back into his ‘Rahul’ avatar.

The 1973 blockbuster’s remake and namesake, this one sure has raised hopes of the audiences.
