Don’t first looks of films excite you? Apart from creating hype and curiosity, they help in generating public interest in the film. They are part of a new promotional strategy used by filmmakers these days, sometimes way before the launch of their respective film’s trailer. In the past, Aamir Khan’s mammoth PK was promoted with a series of interesting posters. Recently, Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s first look was shared by both Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan on Twitter. Both films went on to earn over 300 crores at the box-office. The upcoming line-up of films looks interesting and some of their first looks have got us marking our calendars. We give you our verdict on why these first looks worked.

Shah Rukh Khan in Raees
Apart from assuring us that this one’s going to be a sure-shot blockbuster, SRK’s hot-gangster look had all his fans pining. Black kurta and a bearded King Khan. Drool!
Priyanka Chopra in GangaaJal 2
We have seen her in various roles- from an aspiring model in Fashion to the autistic girl in Barfi, and how can one forget the boxer, Mary Kom! This time, she dons the khaki vardi for GangaaJal 2. This tough cop is going to do some serious ass-kicking!
This yummy mummy is all set for her comeback film, Jazbaa. The first look has left us awestruck and we can’t stop raving about it! A leaked fan-video showed us that she will be doing some high-octane action scenes, too. Ash is going to be back with a bang, isn’t she?
Ranveer Singh in Bajirao Mastani
Well, this Ranveer Singh can pull off any look with elan, from printed and velvety clothes to the sexy, bald and bearded avatar, this guy can make any girl weak in her knees. He plays the Maratha Peshwa warrior in this Sanjay Leela Bhansali film and looks the part.
Deepika Padukone in Bajirao Mastani
Deepika is surely going to kill it with this one. All dressed up in knight’s armor, this warrior princess has another blockbuster on the way.
SRK & Kajol in Dilwale
The DDLJ blockbuster jodi are back together, this Christmas, to break the box-office! And if this picture is anything to go by, this film will totally rekindle the magic of DDLJ. It looks like Raj and Simran 20 years later, and they are still completely adorable!
