So, we are into 2012. Get ready for a dose of Bollywood comedy and thrillers with an interesting mix of movies like 'Players', 'Agneepath', 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu', 'Jodi Breakers' and 'Agent Vinod'.

The first big release of year 2012 is Abbas-Mustan's multi-starrer action-thriller 'Players', starring Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Bobby Deol and Sikander Kher. The actors are extensively promoting the film.

The film has already created a lot of buzz for its action sequences and ultra-glam avatar of the leading ladies Bipasha and Sonam. The film boasts of action and thrills galore.

This will be followed by horror film 'Ghost', which marks the comeback of actor Shiney Ahuja. Shiney's movie career hit a rough patch when he was convicted by a Mumbai fast track court of raping his domestic help two years ago. The actor has challenged the sentence in the Bombay High Court and is currently out on bail.

'Ghost' will release alongside Hriday Shetty's 'Chaalis Chauraasi', a crime-humour offering, starring Kay Kay Menon, Naseeruddin Shah, Ravi Kishan and Atul Kulkarni.

This year will see two Karan Johar flicks - 'Agneepath(2012)' and 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu' - hitting theatres.

A remake of the 1990 film, 'Agneepath' sees Hrithik Roshan stepping into the shoes of Amitabh Bachchan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan alongside Sanjay Dutt who plays baddie Kancha Cheena. Set for a Jan 26 Republic Day release, it also features Priyanka Chopra.

Romantic comedy 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu', starring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor, will release in February.

The new year will be high on comedy with Akshaye Khanna's 'Gali Gali Chor Hai', Riteish Deshmukh-Genelia D'Souza-starrer 'Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya', Bipasha-Madhavan's 'Jodi Breakers', Sajid Khan's 'Housefull 2', Sachin Yardi's 'Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum', Sameer Sharma's 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' and Rohit Shettty's 'Bol Bachchan' scheduled to release.

Vishal Bhardwaj's comedy 'Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola', set in a rustic Rajasthani backdrop, goes on the floors in February and is slated for release later in 2012. It stars Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma.

Actress Sonakshi Sinha once again hopes to make it big with 'Joker', 'Son of Sardar', 'Dabangg 2' and 'Lootere'. While the 'Dabangg' sequel reunites her with Salman Khan, she will be seen opposite Akshay Kumar in 'Joker'. 'Son of Sardar' and 'Lootera' have Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh as her co-stars respectively.

Audiences would be introduced this year to a new genre of zombie-comedy with Ekta Kapoor's 'Rock The Shaadi', starring Abhay Deol.

Those looking for thrills and action wouldn't be disappointed either.

Apart from 'Players', 'Agent Vinod', 'Blood Money', 'Tezz' and 'Jannat 2', Aamir Khan-starrer 'Talaash', Akshay Kumar's 'Rowdy Rathore' and 'Race 2' are lined up for release.

After a bold performance in 'The Dirty Picture', Vidya Balan will return with the thriller 'Kahaani', a story of a pregnant woman in search of her missing husband.

After three back-to-back hits with 'Wanted (2009)', 'Dabangg' and 'Bodyguard', Salman Khan will once again attempt to strike gold with Kabir Khan's romantic thriller 'Ek Tha Tiger'.

'Rockstar' Ranbir Kapoor's next big release 'Barfee', directed by Anurag Basu, will see him playing a deaf individual, while Priyanka Chopra will esssay a mentally challenged girl. It is a murder mystery.

Movie biopics 'Paan Singh Tomar' starring Irrfan Khan, and Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra's 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', with Farhan Akhtar in the lead, would also release this year.

Two of the most popular actresses are making a comeback this year.

Sridevi will return to the big screen after 15 years with Gauri Shinde's 'English Vinglish', which is is produced by Balki of 'Paa' fame. Karisma Kapur also makes her acting comeback with Vikram Bhatt's horror film 'Dangerous Ishq'.

Madhur Bhandarker's ambitious project 'Heroine' starring Kareena Kapoor will see the light of the day in 2012. Sharman Joshi's first solo project 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari' and Prateik's 'Ekk Deewana Tha' will also release this year.
