As the 2012 comes to end, Bollywood welcomes 2013 with open arms. 2013 marks the year of remakes and sequels. Without further adieu, BollyCurry presents what Tinsel Town has to offer in the new year!

B-Town's first release starts off with a bang with Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola starring Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma. The trailers of this comedy along with Anushka's surprising, bold avatar have become the talk of the town. Set in Haryana, Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is a bizarre story, as stated by director Vishal Bhardwaj. The plot revolves around a wealthy industrialist, Harry (Pankaj Kapoor), his daughter Bijlee (Anushka Sharma) and Harry's "man friday" (Imran Khan). Bijlee is ready to marry Badaal (Arya Babber), who happens to the son of a politician (Shabana Azmi). You would think everything would be simple, but apparently not and that is the plot of the movie! Don't forget to see how this story unfolds just two weeks into the New Year on January 11th, 2013.
If Race caught you by surprise, then get ready for thriller numero 2! Race 2, the sequel to 2008's Race, stars Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Ameesha Patel. The Bengali beauty, Bipasha Basu is to have a cameo in the sequel. The trailers have been quite the buzz and if you haven't heard the chart-topper "Party on my Mind", then you know what you should be doing soon! This action - suspense will hit the silver screen on January 25th, 2013.
Next up is Akshay Kumar's first release of the year, Special Chabbis. This venture also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Jimmy Shergill, Manoj Bajpai and Anupam Kher. The film is based on the wicked robbery of March 19th, 1987 where 26 individuals posed as government officials and robbed multiple jewelers worth hundreds of thousands.  This drama is set to release days before Valentines Day -  February 8th, 2013.

ABCD - Anybody Can Dance is the next directorial venture from the ace choreographer, Remo D'Souza. Multiple Dance India Dance fames will be seen setting the screen on fire. Prabhu Deva, Kay Kay Menon and Ganesh Acharya are said to have pivotal roles in the movie. The plot takes you through the journey of Vishnu (Prabhu Deva) who lives to dance. However, due to certain circumstances, he decides to leave dancing forever. Moments before he gives up on dancing totally, he discovers a batch of fresh talent. He then takes a stand to turn this crew into India's best. Rumor mills have it that director D'Souza has already planned for a sequel even before the release of this prequel. A risky yet passionate move we must say. Tagged as "India's first 3D Dance Film," this musical will dance its way to theaters on February 8th, 2013.

When it's a year of sequels and thrillers, how can the Murder franchise stay behind? Mahesh Bhatt presents Murder 3 starring Randeep Hooda, Aditi Rao Hydari and debutante Mona Laizza. The first look poster was revealed on expected D-Day, December 21st with the release of Dabangg 2. Rumors have it that the film is based on American horror film Jennifer's Body. The tagline states This Valentine, Love will be murdered. Will you go catch this horrific murder film on Feburary 15th, 2013?
Based on Chetan Bhagat's The 3 Mistakes of My Life, Kai Po Che! Marks the debut of small screen's heartthrob, Sushant Singh Rajput. The handsome hunk will share the frame with Raj Kumar Yadav, Amit Sadh and Amrita (seen in Aisha).  Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, this film explores friendship like never before. Fans will have to wait a tad bit for this one as Kai Po Che! is scheduled to hit theaters on February 22nd, 2013.

March 8th will see the return of Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster with a sequel. The old star cast consisting of Jimmy Shergill, Mahie Gill and Randeep Hooda will remain apart of the follow-on. Irrfan Khan and Soha Ali Khan have also been roped in for part 2. Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster was applauded by critics for its provoking and strong story line - will part two have the same outcome? To find out, catch this drama thriller in a theater near you.

Continuing the trends of sequels, Balaji Motion Pictures and White Feather Films are ready to set the screen on fire with Shootout at Wadala. This venture will see John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Sonu Sood, Manoj Bajpai, Ronit Roy, Mahesh Manjrekar and Tusshar Kapoor . It is said to be based on Dongri to Dubai - Six Decades of The Mumbai Mafia, a book written by S. Hissain Zaidi. Rumors also have it that 'Desi girl' Priyanka Chopra will be seen dancing on an item number. Catch this crime film on May 1st, 2013!

Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone fans have a reason to rejoice as this stunning pair makes a comeback on the big screen with Dharma Productions' Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. Aditya Roy Kapoor and Kalki Koehlin will also be seen in the film playing pivotal roles. Ayan Mukherji directs this romance film and Pritam will serve as the music director. This venture will be hitting the big screen on May 31st, 2013.

Well there you have it -  a glance at the first half of 2013. Stay tuned for part numero deux. Which movies are you looking forward to the most?

Why is Main Aur Mr Right not on this list. Barun Sobti's debut bollywood film is sure to be popular as he has a huge international fan following.
