Stars in Upcoming Indian Trilogies

Bollywood movies have always managed to keep its audiences entertained and give them unique content. Over the years, the pattern of film making has changed in the industry. While stories were wrapped up in a single movie earlier, the filmmakers are now moving towards a multiple-part approach with their stories. Filmmakers in the previous times have tried to play with trilogies whose few examples would include 'DON', 'Dhoom' and the 'Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Trilogy'. With the huge success of multi-lingual films like 'Baahubali', 'K.G.F', 'Pushpa', etc., which were made in more than one part, filmmakers are eager to explore the territory of fantasy fiction filmed in different parts.
