Sequels are understood to be a safe bet in Bollywood these days.

When Abhishek Kapoor made Rock On in 2008, he wouldn’t have thought about its sequel. Some sequels had released by then, but it wasn’t seen as a trend.

Things have changed so much in the eight years that the producers decided to go with a new director in Rock On 2. This time it is directed by Shujaat Saudagar.

However, this is just the beginning because at least five sequels are in the pipeline to hit theatres in next four months.

Force 2 (November 18, 2016): John Abraham’s ACP Yashwardhan is back to work on a terrorism-related case. His wife was killed by some criminals a few years ago, and that keeps his anger burning. Sonakshi Sinha is a RAW agent who might help him in his endeavour. Abhinay Deo is the director of the film.

Tum Bin 2 (November 18, 2016): Like November 11, next Friday is also going to be a clash of sequels. Anubhav Sinha’s film featuring Neha Sharma, Aditya Seal and Aashima Gulati, is all set to rekindle old-world romance. Also, they have kept the famous Jagjit Singh ghazal ‘koi fariyad’ in the film.

Kahaani 2 (December 2, 2016): The team of Vidya Balan and Sujoy Ghosh is back with another thrilling story. Once again it’s about a lone woman’s search. A mysterious woman Durga Rani Singh, played by Balan, is on a lookout for her daughter, but she is trailed by a police officer.

Jolly LLB 2 (February 10, 2017): Akshay Kumar has replaced Arshad Warsi in the sequel to 2013 film Jolly LLB. Like Arshad, Akshay is also playing a lawyer who doesn’t know how to cope with a corrupt judiciary. Huma Qureshi and Annu Kapoor also play important roles in director Subhash Kapoor’s film.

Apart from these films, Judwaa 2, Aankhein 2, Robot 2.o, Baahubali 2 and Golmaal Again are also expected to release next year.
