- Authors: Zinia Bandyopadhyay (Editorial Team)
2018 can easily be called Bollywood’s year of comebacks. The reason is simple- as many as 12 stars are all set to make their comebacks this year. Yes, these are the stars who we had been missing on the big screen for quite some time. While some had been a part of regional cinema, some had taken a break.
In this list, we are not considering stars like Sonam Kapoor or Harsvardhan Rane who will be seen after a gap of a year. Check out the list of stars making their comebacks in 2018:
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena Kapoor Khan embraced motherhood in 2016. Nut she made a speedy entry into Bollywood post motherhood. Kareena worked hard to get back to shape post pregnancy and sprung back to action almost immediately. In fact, she donned a super glam and slim avatar in the all girls film- Veere Di Wedding. In the film, she played the role of Kalindi Puri. She was seen on screen before this in the 2016 film Ki And Ka with Arjun Kapoor.
Not just Kareena Kapoor Khan, but Ranu Mukerji too appeared in films for the first time post motherhood this year with Hichki. The film explored the plight of a girl with Tourette syndrome who aspires to a teacher and who has to prove her worth. The film is an adaptation of the Hollywood film, The Front Of The Class. Rani Mukerji was brilliant and she made fans realize what they were missing on-screen. She was last seen in the 2014 film Mardaani.
Madhuri Dixit is seen on Tv nowadays as a judge of the dance reality show, Dance Deewane, she has been missing in action on the big screen for quite some time. The actress was last seen in the 2014 film Gulaab Gang along with Juhi Chawla, who used to be one of her biggest competitors in the 90s. She appeared in the Marathi film Bucket List this year. She is all set to return to Bollywood with Total Dhamaal, which is a sequel of the Dhamaal franchise. She will be seen alongside Ajay Devgn. She will also reunite with Anil Kapoor for the film.
Kajol is being seen in Bollywood on and off. After the 2010 release, My Name Is Khan, where she played the character of Mandira, she was seen in 2015 in the film Dilwale. Even though we saw the SRK-Kajol pair, fans were left disappointed. She had been part of the Tamil film VIP2 along with Dhanush in 2017. But this year, she will return to Bollywood with Pradeep Sarkar’s Helicopter Eela. She will play a single mom who aspires to be a singer. Actor Riddhi Sen will be seen as her son in the film.
Abhishek Bachchan too has been missing in action for quite some time. After the much forgettable film All Iss Well, that had Asin starring opposite him, he vanished. The film released in 2015. Abhishek Bachchan will return this year with Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan. The film also stars Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu. We will see Abhishek donning a turban as a Sardarji in the film. After the first look of abhishek released, Amitabh Bachchan commented that he loved the look and that his father and Junior AB’s grandfather would have been proud to see him this way!
Karan Singh Grover
Karan Singh Grover might be in the news for his vacations and mushy pictures with wife Bipasha Basu or even some controversies, but the actor has been largely missing in action for a long time. He was last seen in the revenge thriller Hate Story 3 in 2015. After that the actor got married and has been on an hiatus. But there is good news for fans. The actor is all set to make his comeback with the film 3 Dev. The film was originally slated to release in May but has been delayed. He will also be seen in another film called Firkie that will release either this year or next year!
Preity Zinta has left Bollywood. Even though it might be heart-breaking for fans, she has bid adieu to the industry and is now a businesswoman who owns an IPL team. But there is good news for fans. She will be seen on the big screen once more this year. It is because the Sunny Deol starrer film, Bhaiyyaji Superhit, will hit the theatres in September this year. The film, that has Priety Zinta as one of the female leads, had been shelved for a long time. She was last seen in the film, Ishq In Paris.
Ameesha Patel might not have bid adieu to the film industry, but she has vanished with no films on hand. But there is a reason for Gadar Fans to rejoice. The actress will be seen along with Gadar co-star Sunny Deol in Bhaiyyaji Superhit. The shelved film will finally release this year. Ameesha will play the female lead alongside Priety Zinta. We also hope that Ameesha’s Desi Magic will also release some time soon. She was last seen in the film Race 2 that released in 2013.
Funnyman Javed Jaafery will return to screen once again with the Dhamaal franchise. Jaffery has been a part of the Dhamaal franchise all throughout and needless to say, he will be there in the upcoming release Total Dhamaal. Other than Javed, the film has Arshad Warsi, Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn and Madhuri Dixit. Javed Jaafery was last seen in the 2014 film Bang Bang where he played the villain. In Total Dhamaal, he will come back to comedy. He will play the character of as Manav Shrivastav.
Many might not know but Shatrugan Sinha’s son and Sonakshi Sinha’s brother, Luv Sinha, has had his debut long back. The oldest son, who has a twin brother named Kush Sinha had his debut in the same year as Sonakshi. He appeared in 2010 film, Sadiyaan which also starred Rishi Kapoor, Hema Malini, Javed Sheikh and Rekha. The film flopped at the Box-office. However, he is all set to comeback with J.P Dutta’s Paltan. It would be the last part of Dutta’s ambitious war trilogy and Luv will play the role of a soldier!
J.P. Dutta’s films are known to bring back many stars back to Bollywood. Like Luv Sinha and Harshvardhan Rane, J.P. Dutta’s upcoming film will have another actress who will be seen on big-screen after a long time. We are talking about Jannat actress Sonal Chauhan, who will have a role in Paltan. The actress has been active in the South industry, but in Bollywood, she had gone incognito. She was last seen in the 2013 film 3G along with Neil Nitin Mukesh. She also sang the song Kaise Batao Tujhe in the film.
Renuka Sahane is best known as Jiji from Hum Aapke Hai Kaun. The actress has been quite active in the Marathi film industry and on Tv but had been missing in action in Bollywood. The 53 year old actress made her comeback to Bollywood this year with 3 Storeys, She played the character of Flory Mendonca and stunned the sudiences with her look.
