5 Much Awaited Bollywood Biopics To Be Released in 2017

Bollywood entertains the audience with different types of movies ranging from comedy, drama, romantic to biopics. Some movies hit the box office while winning hearts of the audience while some fail miserably. Looking at the trends, actors have also got very choosy with the selection of the movies. Gone are the days when they used to sign a number of movies just for the sake of money. Now, they pay more attention to the story, which has made them more inclined towards real life stories.

They find playing real life characters on screen more challenging as they need to get into the skin of the character to make it live. Increasing interest of audience and actors in real life characters can be easily seen from the success of biopics released last year like ‘Dangal’, ‘Neerja’ and ‘Ms Dhoni – The Untold Story’. Audience loves to watch these movies as it introduces them to the real life characters they might not be aware of.

The list of biopics doesn’t end with 2016. There are more biopics scheduled to be released in 2017, one of which ‘Raees’ has already released and won hearts of fans. Here are some more biopics that we can’t wait to watch in 2017.
