With February coming to an end, Bollywood has given us films like Kaabil, Raees, Jolly LLB 2, The Ghazi attack which have lived up to our expectations. We can expect the same from some of the film slated to release later this year. Here are the nine films from which the audience surely has high expectations this year.
1. Naam Shabana
Naam Shabana is a prequel to the 2015 thriller BABY. After watching Tapsee’s performance in PINK and the 15 minute role in BABY we certainly cannot wait to see her play a full fledged role in this film. Akshay Kumar will be seen again in his ‘BABY’ avatar. The film releases on March 31.
2. Jagga Jasoos
Jagga Jasoos is an upcoming Indian musical, adventure and comedy film written and directed by Anurag Basu, and produced by Basu and Ranbir Kapoor.

The film is slated to release on 7th April.
3. Baahubali: The Conclusion
Arguably the most awaited film of 2017. Finally we will come to know, “Why did Katappa kill Baahubali?” This film has a huge responsibility of living upto the expectations of the audience after the first installment Baahubali: The Beginning, which the people loved totally. This film is slated to release a week after Jagga Jasoos on April 14.

Toilet – Ek Prem Katha is an upcoming Indian Hindi film directed by Shree Narayan Singh. The story of this film revolves around PM Narendra Modi’s Swachha Bharat Abhiyan.
