AB Sr, meanwhile, remains a force to be reckoned with despite the emergence of younger stars. The 'Shahenshah' was last seen in the dramedy Gulabo Sitabo, which released directly on a streaming platform as opposed to in theatres. The Shoojit Sircar-helmed film featured Ayushmann Khurrana as the parallel lead and received rave reviews from critics.

The original 'Angry Young Man' will soon be seen in the thriller Chehre, which marks his first collaboration with popular actor Emraan Hashmi. The film  features Rhea Chakraborty in a key role but the Jalebi star is not visible in the first look poster. Chehre is slated to hit the screens on April 30.

Bachchan will be continuing his tryst with multi-starrers  with Mayday, which reunites him with Major Saab co-star Ajay Devgn. The film stars Rakul Preet as the leading lady and may prove to be a game changer for her.

Big B will be returning to Tollywood with the eagerly-awaited movie Prabhas 21, which features Prabhas and Deepika Padukone as the lead pair, The Nag Ashwin-helmed biggie revolves around the concept of the 'inner God' and may have shades of the yesteryear classic Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari, which was dubbed in Hindi as Aadmi Aur Apsara.

The 'Sadi Ka Mahanayak' also has the sports drama Jhund and a film with Vikas Bahl in his kitty.
