5.) Kirpaan - The Sword of Honour

Roshan Prince made his acting debut with a 2009 film Lagda Ishq Ho Gaya but he really got noticed only in 2013 with films like Fer Mamla Gadbad Gadbad (solo), Naughty Jatts (multistarrer) and Lucky Di Unlucky Story (Cameo).

Now, in 2014, stakes are going to get higher for this singer turned actor. His biggest release till date is Fer Mamla Gadbad Gadbad but that film lacked the novelty that could click with the masses. His next film Kirpaan may be able to fulfill that void.

Kirpaan also stars Gurleen Chopra, Sameksha Singh, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Sunita Dhir, Shavinder Mahal and others. It is directed by Amrik Gill who is a veteran writer from Bollywood and Punjabi Cinema. Kirpaan releases on February 7, 2014.

7.) Mukhtiar Chadha

Diljit Dosanjh will be playing the central protagonist in an author backed role Mukhtiar Chadha. Special thing about this film is that Diljit Dosanjh is also the co-writer of the film.
