Bollywood's three iconic Khans - Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir - have lots of releases set for the near future.
Salman's "Jai Ho" marked the first big release from the Khan clan this year but only managed to do average business, compared to his previous releases.
While Shah Rukh's "Happy New Year" has already created quite a buzz, Salman's upcoming flicks "Kick", "Non Entry Mein Entry", the untitled Sooraj Barjatya film continue to be in the limelight. Adding to this list, is Mr. Perfectionist Aamir's highly anticipated "PK".
Let's take a look at the industry stalwarts' upcoming films:
Shah Rukh Khan
Happy New Year: This multi-starrer was all over the news, even before it started its production work. The film, a heist comedy, features SRK, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani, and is directed by Farah Khan. The first leg of the shoot was completed in Dubai, and the second schedule in India was in the news, after SRK got injured during filming. The film is set to release on October 24.
Raes: Shah Rukh will pair up with Farhan Akhtar for the first time onscreen for Rahul Dholakia's "Raes", where the superstar will essay the role of a bootlegger. Reportedly, Sonam Kapoor will play the female lead, and the film is to start production from later this year. Tentative release date of "Raes" has been set for 2015 Eid.
Fan: The superstar is to return to the YRF clan with the Maneesh Sharma flick. SRK had confirmed earlier that he will be doing the film. The film's shoot is expected to start from May 2014 but the lead actress has not been confirmed yet.
Untitled Rohit Shetty film: Both the actor and the director has revealed plans to work together again, after their successful collaboration in "Chennai Express".
Kick: Producer and Salman's close friend Sajid Nadiadwala will make his directorial debut with "Kick", which also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Randeep Hooda. The film is a remake of the 2009 Telugu superhit of the same name, and has been set for an Eid release this year (27 July).
No Entry Mein Entry: The superstar finally gave the nod to a sequel to his superhit film "No Entry" (2005), after waiting two years. The film will retain the original male cast of Salman, Anil Kapoor and Fardeen Khan. The female lead has not been finalized yet but speculations claim Bipasha Basu will make a return.
Sooraj Barjatya film: Salman will pair up with the maker of some of Bollywood's classic family sagas. The film will go on floors from June this year. Salman is expected to be seen in a double role but the lead actress has not been finalised yet. The film is expected for a Diwali 2015 release.
Kabir Khan film: Salman will reunite with "Ek Tha Tiger" director for a film, which has been slotted for an Eid release next year. If the schedule remains fixed, it might clash with SRK's "Raes".
Prabhu Deva film: After the success of "Wanted", the southern director is eager to do another film with Salman.
PK (Peekay): Definitely one of the most awaited films of the year, "PK", directed by Rajkumar Hirani, stars Aamir, Anushka Sharma, Sanjay Dutt and Sushant Singh Rajput. While the plot of the movie has been strictly kept under wraps, Aamir has been snapped donning some weird appearances for the film. The film's release date was continuously postponed, and it now on 25 December.
Sarfarosh 2: The perfectionist is understood to have approached "Sarfarosh" director John Matthew Matthan to script the sequel. The film is still in the pre-production stage.
Unconfirmed project: There are also rumours of Aamir and Farhan starring in a film, which might also have Deepika.
