[UPDATE: Because of the global coronavirus pandemic, some of the titles on this list are likely to postpone or alter their release dates. Some will bypass theaters and release directly on streaming video platforms. I’ll update this list as news of postponements or new release dates is made available.]
This page contains a list of release dates for Hindi films that I believe are likely to open in the United States and Canada. Not all of the Hindi movies that release into Indian theaters make the journey overseas, and certain stars, directors, and studios are more likely than others to have their movies released in North America. My primary source for release dates is the complete list of Hindi movies set for release in India maintained by Bollywood Hungama. All the dates are subject to change. (Updated January 18, 2022)
