He ended the year by pairing up with Kareena Kapoor Khan for Good Newwz. Overall, one can say that Akshay promised to win hearts in 2019 with all these major releases. He has already unveiled his looks from upcoming release Sooryavanshi and Laxmmi Bomb. Both of them promise to be two major bombs to be dropped by Khiladi Kumar next year. He recently announced that he has completed shooting for cop movie Sooryavanshi. Amitabh Bachchan: Age may be slowing down the spirit of megastar Amitabh Bachchan and this became evident recently when he announced his thought of retiring from films to his fans through his personal blog.

But, they should not feel so much worried as Big B is currently busy shooting for his upcoming important projects like Brahmastra and Chehre and Gulabo Sitabo. So, it is time for us to sit back and cherish his next magical creations before that day finally arrives when he decides to hang his boots. This is also the year when he is receiving the 50th Dadasaheb Phalke Award.

The Ayushmann mania has been sweeping the Bollywood shores for the past couple of years and this time it started with the thriller Article 15. Then came Dream Girl, with its hidden soft message against the trouble of loneliness faced by people today. With his last release Bala, Ayushmann remained the hit maker of the year, creating probably a new formula for upcoming stars to follow in the coming days. Now, 2020 promises to be another Ayushmann Khurrana year when he will be seen in two major releases Gulabo Sitabo and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan.

However, the movie and Sunny grabbed headlines for a strange reason this time. In one of the scenes of the movie, Sunny gives her contact number to lead actor Diljit Dosanjh and it so happened that the number is an active one, in service, and belongs to one Puneet Agarwal of Delhi. Puneet was deluged by lewd calls since then. Puneet, 27, received 100 to 150 calls from random people every day. From obscene talk and people asking for video calls to verbal abuses, Puneet was subjected to all sorts of strange requests because people thought it was Sunny Leone;s phone number. Sushant Singh Rajput: Sushant appeared thrice this year in movies like Sonchiriya, Chhichhore and Drive. However, his most successful movie remained Chhichhore. The friendship drama made it remarkably big at the Box Office and remained as one of the major success stories of the year. Shahid Kapoor: From his chocolate lover boy image in 2007 release Jab We Met, Shahid has walked a long journey in Bollywood and this time Kabir Singh did the magic for the star. The crazy portrayal of a doctor, who is in love with intoxication and his beloved, played by Kiara Advani, surely earned the appreciation of youth in India. Infact, Kabir Singh, the character, has emerged as one of the most controversial in the Hindi film industry in recent times and dubbed utterly misogynistic. Shahid surely did not fail to deliver once again. Mr. Bollywood of the Year One movie, patriotism and Box Office glory, Vicky Kaushal and his iconic dialogue from the movie How is The Josh had emerged as the next big thing Bollywood generated in this nation at the beginning of the year. The film won hearts across the country.
