Bollywood superstars Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan may not be the best of friends, but there seems to be good understanding between them. Their films were supposed to clash at the box office this Christmas, but they have apparently avoided it for good.
Shahrukh’s film Don 2 is scheduled for release this Christmas and Aamir’s yet-to-be-titled film directed by Reema Kagti is also scheduled for release around the same time. But it would be so foolish to release the films of the superstars around the same time and eat into each other’s revenues. So, the makers of Aamir’s film seem to have decided to delay the release of the film.
Moreover, Shahrukh’s Don 2 is a big-budget film and the hyped around it is good, as it is a sequel to the hit film Don. On the other hand, Reema Kagti's film is a small-budget film though it features Aamir and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles.
Well, it is a wise move from the filmmakers. After all, eating into each other’s revenues won’t benefit anybody!
