"If you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt — only love.'" Mirzya is a timeless folktale based on the life of Mirza Saibhan and set in two parallel worlds. It follows the journey of two lovers. One world is reality and the other world is a complete fantasy. As the lovers grapple with the forces that try to tear them apart, they discover that even a moment of true love is worth an entire lifetime.

Tutak Tutak Tutiya is a Bollywood dance film featuring iconic dance master Pradhu Deva alongside Tamannaah and Sonu Sood.

The film is in Hindi but has also been dubbed in Tamil and Telugu.

Based on William Shakespeare's Julius Ceasar and Antony and Cleopatra, Zulfiqar is a Bengali film that will take audiences by surprise. The film is set to release during the Durga Puja festival. The film was written while its director, Srijit Mukherji, was confined to a hospital bed. It's set against the backdrop of the Kolkata underworld. Srijit has also confirmed that the film is a tribute to the 1972 film The Godfather, and this should be the perfect salute since the director has six blockbusters out of the eight films he has made so far in his career.

It looks like Ajay Devgan's latest film, Shivaay, will be hitting the screens on Diwali weekend. The action thriller was directed and produced by the actor, who also plays the lead role. The plot has not yet been revealed, but it Mithoon has allegedly done the music and British band The Vamps have worked some magic within the film as well.

Competing with Devgan's Shivaay as one of the month's most eagerly anticipated films that will also release on Diwali weekend, Dharma Productions' Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was directed by the much-loved Karan Johar. The film was announced back in 2014, and Johar has said he needed time to develop it. It looks like the film's plot is a mix of love stories, starting with Anushka's character, who is trying to get over a recent breakup when she develops a relationship with a man who loves to sing, played by Ranbir Kapoor. But somewhere in the mix, as you see in the trailer, we have something going on between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's character and Kapoor, with superstar Shah Rukh Khan making a guest appearance. We can't forget that we also have Pakistani actor and Bollywood heartthrob Fawad Khan. The trailer promises a brilliant storyline!
