As we step into 2023, if there’s one thing that we’re optimistic about – it has to be the Bollywood movies that are slated to release this year. Let’s face it, in 2022, only a handful of movies managed to make waves on the big screen. From Aamir Khan’s much-hyped Forest Gump remake Laal Singh Chaddha to Akshay Kumar’s family drama Raksha Bandhan, the list of flops in 2022 outweighed those that performed. But in 2023, we’re hopeful that Bollywood has a few heavyweights in store to inspire us to return to cinema halls. So for today’s List hai toh hit hai, we take a look at the most anticipated Bollywood movies of 2023!
