From ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ to ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’: Hindi Films Releasing in Theatres This May

While 2022 has proved to be a successful year for Tamil and Telugu cinema, only films like The Kashmir Files and Gangubai Kathiawadi have managed to keep the Hindi industry afloat. Apart from these, most Hindi films released this year have struggled to make a mark at the box office.


However, the month of May might bring a change in the fortune of the Hindi film industry despite the lack of the customary Salman Khan release this Eid. Films such as Jayeshbhai Jordaar and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 are lined up and expected to do well. Although Ranveer Singh’s last release ’83 did not do well, anticipations are still high for his upcoming film. Similarly, trade experts also expect crowds to turn up in good numbers for the sequel to the hit Akshay Kumar film Bhool Bhulaiyaa.
