The King Khan of Bollywood teams up with Lady Superstar! There's no better news than Shah Rukh Khan joining hands with Nayanthara for an out-n-out action thriller directed by Atlee Kumar. The film is scheduled to release on June 2, 2023.
Ayushmann Khurrana-Ananya Panday: Dream Girl 2
Ayushmann Khurrana is returning to the Dream Girl franchise after the humongous success of the first part. This time, he has been paired with Ananya Panday. Trolls were unkind to the young actress but she and the makers took it with a pinch of salt. Instead of reacting to naysayers harshly, they hilariously introduced Ananya in the first teaser.
Ranbir Kapoor-Rashmika Mandanna-Tripti Dimri: Animal
Ranbir Kapoor with Rashmika Mandanna and Tripti Dimri! That's enough to imagine what a fantastic film Animal would be. For the first time, Rashmika and Tripti are working with Ranbir in an out-n-out Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial.
Sidharth Malhotra-Raashi Khanna-Disha Patani: Yodha
Too much hotness, isn't it? Sidharth Malhotra will be unleashing his action avatar in Yodha and this time, Disha Patani and Raashii Khanna are joining him. It is still unclear whether the actresses will be paired with him romantically.
Shah Rukh Khan-Taapsee Pannu: Dunki
Though Taapsee Pannu has worked with Shah Rukh Khan in the last on films like Badla, she never shared the screen space with him. Now, the dream is coming true. Shah Rukh and Taapsee are headlining Rajkumar Hirani's December 2023 release, titled Dunki. A picture from the film's international set went viral on social media and it has got movie buffs excited.
Sara Ali Khan-Vicky Kaushal: Untitled
Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali Khan were supposed to star opposite each other for the first time in Aditya Dhar's The Immortal Ashwatthama but destiny had a different plan. The actress is no longer a part of the mythological fantasy which has been put on the backburner for the time being. On the contrary, Sara and Vicky shot for Laxman Utekar's upcoming directorial and that will be their first film together.
Katrina Kaif-Vijay Sethupathi: Merry Christmas
For the first time ever, Katrina Kaif teamed up with the current South sensation, Vijay Sethupathi, for Sriram Raghavan's highly-anticipated film titled Merry Christmas. Not much about their roles have been disclosed yet.

Deepika Padukone is going global and we ain't complaining. She has signed Nag Ashwin's pan-world film, tentatively titled Project K, which stars her with Prabhas and Amitabh Bachchan. While she has worked with Mr. Bachchan in the past, it will be interesting to watch her with the Bahubali of Indian cinema.
Prabhas-Kriti Sanon: Adipurush
There were strong rumours that Prabhas and Kriti Sanon are dating each other. Reports claimed that they fell in love while shooting for Om Raut's Adipurush. However, the actress clearly denied the news. Prabhas plays the role of Lord Ram in the film whereas Kriti is Sita/Janki.
Salman Khan-Pooja Hegde: Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan

Alaya F-Rajkummar Rao: Sri
Alaya F, in her 3rd film titled Sri, is paired with Rajkummar Rao. While it is known that Rajkummar is playing a blind person, Alaya's role is still a surprise. This is definitely one of the most unique pairings of 2023.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu-Vijay Deverakonda: Kushi
Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Vijay Deverakonda fans are on cloud nine ever since Kushi was announced. The actors recently shot for the film in Kashmir. The pan-India sensations have upped the anticipation and this goes without a doubt.
