Aamir Khan is planning to release his next film, the Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster, Ghajini, in October, aiming for the big weekend that will coincide with the 'Eid-ul-Fitr' and Gandhi Jayanti holidays.
Well, that is exactly how it has turned out to be! Ghajini is now listed for release on October 3, in reliable trade journals. An interesting thing is that the makers may even go for a mid-week release, as 'Eid-ul-Fitr' may fall on October 1.
However, Aamir Khan may not be the only top star wooing the audience during the bountiful weekend. News is that Akshay 'Khiladi' Kumar, whose movies have become a constant feature during the 'Eid' period, is likely to give him company. The series of Akki films that released during the 'Eid' period goes something like this- Aitraaz (2004), Garam Masala (2005), Jaan-e-mann (2006) and Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007). The current year is likely to see Akshay's action extravaganza Chandni Chowk To China (with hot new sensation Deepika Padukone), release during the festive occasion.
So, will history repeat itself, and will the box-office witness double joy? Obviously, we are referring to the twin blockbuster success of Welcome and Taare Zameen Par, both of which released on the same Friday, during the other 'Eid'. We are quite sure that the answer will be a definite yes!
