After the success of Stree (2018), Bollywood is set to roll out more movies in the ‘horror comedy’ genre. While the Rajkummar Rao starrer is rumored to get not just one but two sequels, more successful horror comedies from the past are also set to release sequels in 2021 and 2022. While Laxmii (2020) may have failed to win the audience’s hearts last year, we are more than hopeful for these upcoming horror comedies in Bollywood:
It was recently announced that the Stree director Amar Kaushik will be directing yet another horror comedy, which will reunite him with actor Abhishek Banerjee. The film is expected to release on April 14, 2022 and will also star Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon in the lead, with Deepak Dobriyal playing a supporting character. Dhawan’s character appears as a werewolf in the teaser poster, which he shared on Twitter.
