The month of August is going to be an exciting one for filmi bugs. If you despised the time in lockdown because there weren’t enough ‘new’ films online, your wait ends now. From Independence Day special releases to big banner Bollywood films featuring actors like Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Janhvi Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Vidyut Jammwal, OTT got it.
Sadak 2 (Disney+ Hotstar): On Thursday, the makers of Sadak 2 unveiled a brand new poster and finally announced the release date of the film.

Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl (Netflix): An out and out empowering story, the film marks Janhvi Kapoor’s return on Netflix after Ghost Stories earlier this year. In this one, she brings to the light the heroic story of Gunjan Saxena, who was one of the first female pilots in India to fly in combat and played a vital role in the rescue operations during 1999’s Kargil War. Since the film is releasing over Independence Day weekend on August 12, the film is surely going to strike a patriotic chord.
