Hrithik Roshan has been missing from action ever since his last outing in 2014, Bang Bang. But the actor is currently busy wrapping up his film Mohenjo Daro, which is set to release on 12 August.

It seems that the actor is taking his birthday resolution to be seen in more films very seriously. After Mohenjo Daro, Hrithik Roshan will be next seen in Kaabil which will release on 26 January 2017. Rakesh Roshan, who will produce the film, confirmed the news to a DNA. He said:

"All the major release dates this year are already taken. So we've reserved January 26, 2017 as the release date for Kaabil. We are in no hurry to release our film."

Directed by Sanjay Gupta, the movie, which will also star Yami Gautam and Sonu Sood, is scheduled to go on floors in March 2016. The film will be shot from start to finish in one go at a studio in Mumbai.

Sounds exciting right? It gets better! The Republic Day release spot has already booked by T Series for the release of their action entertainer, Baadshaho starring Ajay Devgn. Directed by Milan Luthria, Baadshaho goes on floor in June this year.
