These are the superstars, majority of whom had multiple releases planned for 2020. While they stayed on to be quite patient right through the year, the situation is pretty much the same in 2021 as well where the waiting game is on. Rest assured, each of these leading ladies would make quite an impression once things come back to normalcy.
Kangana Ranaut [Thalaivi, Dhaakad, Tejas]
It must have been heartbreaking for Kangana Ranaut to see the promo release of her Thalaivi, only for the pandemic to back with vengeance, hence resulting in her film being pushed again. By the look of the things though, she has an intense dramatic entertainer in hand which should do well with the audiences. Meanwhile, she also has Dhaakad and Tejas in production.
Taapsee Pannu [Haseen Dilruba, Rashmi Rocket, Loop Lapeta, Shabaash Mithu, Dobaara, Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan?]
She has been making movies at a rapid pace, what with half a dozen films in her hand. While Haseen Dillruba would arrive straight on OTT, there is also Rashmi Rocket, Loop Lapeta and Shabaash Mithu lined up, as and when theaters are back to normal. Meanwhile, prior to the second wave returning, she had also started shooting for Dobaara and Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan?.
Alia Bhatt [Gangubai Kathiawadi, Brahmastra]
Alia Bhatt had a packed 2020 ahead of her with the second half comprising of as many as three releases. While Sadak 2 released on OTT, Brahmastra was delayed. Gangubai Kathiawadi shooting is also almost complete and while the teaser of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed film has already made an impact, one waits to see how it eventually arrives this summer.
Kiara Advani [Shershaah, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Jug Jug Jeeyo]
Last year Kiara Advani was seen in Guilty and Laxmmi which arrived on OTT while Indoo Ki Jawani also made it to theaters. Meanwhile, there is also Shershaah ready while Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Jug Jug Jeeyo are in different stages of production. She would indeed be having some busy times ahead once things return to normalcy in the world of filmmaking and releases.
Kareena Kapoor Khan [Laal Singh Chaddha]
Kareena Kapoor Khan did have Angrezi Medium release last year but it was short-lived to mere 3 days and that too at just select centers. Moreover, it was more of an Irrfan Khan starrer and the one where she would indeed have a substantial role to play is Laal Singh Chaddha. However, the Aamir Khan led film is now expected to arrive only in Christmas this year.
