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 these 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 August 19, 2019.)
