    2019 has already seen the release of three prominent biopic affairs - Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi, Thackeray and The Accidental Prime Minister. While the Kangana Ranaut starrer has emerged as one of the highest grossing female centric film, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has scored his biggest solo grosser with Thackeray. As for Anupam Kher, he has enjoyed a good run too with The Accidental Prime Minister.

    However, it is just the beginning as there are many more biopic flicks that are lined up for arrival in 2019. Let's take a look.

    Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 - 26th July

    Originally supposed to release in the same weekend as Manikarnika and Thackeray, Sajid Nadiadwala's Super 30 has been pushed ahead by six months. Nonetheless, one indeed hopes that the wait is worth it since Hrithik Roshan is narrating the life and times of mathematician Anand Kumar who is still quite active in the world of education. The actor returns after Kaabil.

    Madhavan's Rocketry - The Nambi Effect - Summer 2019

    Based on the life of ISRO scientist S Nambi Narayanan who was falsely accused of espionage back in 1994, Rocketry - The Nambi Effect is being pitched as a 'space thriller' with Madhavan enacting the central part.

As the title suggests, the film tells the story of an 'unsung warrior' names Tanaji Malusare. As per reports, Tanaji was a military leader in 17th-century Maratha Empire. With Saif Ali Khan as the antagonist, there would be fireworks galore.

    Richa Chadha's Shakeela - Release date TBD

    For those who are aware of a parallel soft porn industry back in the 80s, name Shakeela would indeed ring a bell. If Vidya Balan played Silk Smitha in The Dirty Picture, it is time now for Richa Chadha to get into Shakeela's avtar for the namesake film. The film is being directed by Indrajit Lankesh and one can expect a colorful potrayal of the real life film personality.

    Deepika Padukone's Chapaak - Release date TBD
