If the recently released teaser of Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan-starrer Vikram Vedha is anything to go by, we’re in for a new era of Bollywood action movies that thrill and entertain at the same time.

The two ~*fire emoji*~ actors can be seen battling it out in the preview, while Roshan speaks about what good and evil really mean.

The movie is a remake of a 2017 Tamil movie of the same name, with Roshan and Khan taking on the roles played by Vijay Sethupathi and R. Madhavan. The neo-noir action thriller will also star Radhika Apte, Rohit Saraf, and Satyadeep Misra in pivotal roles.

Not just this, there’s an exciting lineup of action movies that are going to release within the coming months that have got us excited.

Shah Rukh Khan is going to rule our screens again with his three upcoming releases, which include two out-and-out action movies. Ayushmann Khurrana is also going to try his hand with the genre with An Action Hero.

Without further ado, take a look at some of the most exciting and highly anticipated Bollywood action movies that we can’t wait to watch…


An addition to the Yash Raj Films (YRF) Spy Universe, following the Tiger franchise and War, Pathaan is going to mark Shah Rukh Khan’s return to the big screen after a mini hiatus. Aside from a few leaked on-set pictures, not much is known about the movie. SRK has also, reportedly, undergone a rigorous physical transformation for the movie and will sport eight-pack abs for the role. The movie also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.


Tamil-film director Atlee and SRK are collaborating for the upcoming action movie Jawan. The actor shared the first-look teaser from the film on his social media, causing fans to see it as the herald for a SRK-renaissance in Bollywood. The movie also stars Nayanthara, Sanya Malhotra, and Sunil Grover in key roles. Rana Daggubati was supposed to play the villain opposite SRK in the movie, but had to back out because of some scheduling conflicts. Vijay Sethupathi is now going to be a part of the movie in his place. SRK’s Pathaan co-star Deepika Padukone is also, reportedly, going to make an important cameo in the film.

An Action Hero

While not much is known about this Ayushmann Khurrana action movie, it’s clear that the actor is trying out something new and exciting with this one. Khurrana unveiled the poster for the movie on his Instagram recently. Produced by Aanand L. Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions, the movie also stars Jaideep Ahlawat opposite the Vicky Donor actor. According to recent reports, part of the movie has already been shot in London.


Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon are reuniting eight years after making a debut together with Heropanti in 2014. We managed to get an inside track into everything that Kriti Sanon is doing (and it’s a lot!) to prepare for her role in the movie, but the actress claims people are going to see something they’ve never seen before in the movie. According to the actor, there’s “no visual reference for the film” and it will show a “grungy world that has never been seen before”.

Tiger 3

A vital part of the aforementioned YRF Spy Universe, the Tiger movies have gotten more popular and bigger over the years. After Ek Tha Tiger (2012) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are reuniting for a third instalment of the movie. The movie will hit the theatres in April 2023.
