Here’s a list of some of those B-town stars who didn’t manage to weave magic at the box-office with their previous outings. However, all of them are now gearing up for their next releases. Will they manage to redeem their box-office track record? Let’s decode.

Ranbir Kapoor

He always boasted the tag of the ‘next big superstar’ and he pretty much entered the big league with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. However, Besharam changed the game for him. He took more than a year off and was recently see in ‘a dynamic appearance’ with Roy, which again didn’t work. But his biggest film is soon going to arrive in the form of Bombay Velvet. We can’t wait to see what Anurag Kashyap has extracted out of this talented hero.

Vidya Balan

In a female-centric Bobby Jasoos, the stage was set for Vidya to deliver yet another biggie after Kahaani. However, her detective comedy-drama wasn’t taken well by the audience. She will next be pairing up again with Emraan Hashmi in Mohit Suri‘s Hamari Adhuri Kahaani and it is expected that the sensitive musical affair would mark her comeback!

Imran Khan

His debut film, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, was bigger than Ranbir’s Saawariya. But his last few movies, including his last release, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, were more disastrous than RK Jr’s Besharam. Director Nikhil Advani has a mandate to deliver a big success with the refreshing jodi of Imran and Kangana Ranaut. Plus, Katti Batti looks quite interesting.

Ayushmann Khurranna

2014 didn’t quite begin on a happening note for Ayushmann, who had to suffer a disappointment in the form of Bewakoofiyaan. His first release for 2015, Hawaizaada, also didn’t make the cut despite being a good one. But Dum Laga Ke Haisha is looking rather intriguing with an altogether new vibe to it. This one could be a game changer for Ayushmann.

Mallika Sherawat

Last outing – Kismet Love Paisa Dilli

Next release – Dirty Politics

Yes, she is still in the business of films, and is getting her share of attention as a central protagonist. Though Kismet Love Paisa Dilli was a disaster, and she was missing from the Bollywood scene for quite some time, Mallika is now returning with Dirty Politics. Will she get back to her groove in B-town? Now, that’s something the audience would answer in a month from now!

Saif Ali Khan

Happy Ending

Last outing – Happy Ending

Next release – Phantom

The one amongst the Khans who has seen a roller-coaster of a ride in his career spanning two decades, Saif must still be wondering what really went wrong with Happy Ending. But he’s going to be back with a bang with Phantomthat boasts of a power-packed team of producer Sajid Nadiadwala, director Kabir Khan and co-star Katrina Kaif. Whoa!

Here’s wishing good luck to all these talented stars!
