Bridgerton Season 3, Part 2 (Netflix)

Will Pen say a yes to Colin’s marriage proposal? Will she reveal her identity of being Lady Whistledown? How will Eloise react to this news? Bridgerton fans, we know you are on the edge of your seats after the romantic and steamy carriage ride.

Munjya (In cinemas)

Inspired by the Indian folklore Munjya, this supernatural comedy horror arrives after the spooky trilogy of Stree, Roohi and Bhediya. If you are wondering why seasoned actors like Rajkummar Rao or Varun Dhawan were replaced with Abhay Verma and Sharvari, it’s because the eponymous hero is India’s first CGI central character. Let’s see if this film tells a spine-chilling tale.

Chandu Champion (In cinemas)

Another sports biographical drama film. While it’s great to hear about the challenges our athletes faced while emerging victorious in international arenas, we need a break specially straight after Maidaan and Mr and Mrs Mahi. We are excited though to see the magic that Kabir Khan and Kartik Aaryaan will bring onscreen.
