Akshay Kumar: There is a certain formula to make movies successful and Akshay Kumar surely knows them all. His diversity as an actor could be seen specifically in 2019 when he delivered films like Kesari, which was a movie based on patriotism, and Mission Mangal, or a completely different genre of comedy with Housefull 4. 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.
