Welcome and Taare Zameen Par. Both diametrically opposite films in terms of genre worked big time at the box-office. The films in question also cemented the status of the two stars associated with those films -- Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan, respectively.
Now Akshay and Aamir are all set to clash all over again. And it's Christmas time yet again. Aamir's Ghajini is already confirmed for this date and if sources are to be believed, Akshay's Chandni Chowk to China is also eyeing the Christmas week.
"Yes, we're looking at the date. But right now we are more concerned about the right chain of theatres, since Ghajini is also arriving on this date. Plus, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi [releasing on December 12] would also be retaining many screens. We've asked Warner Bros. [partners in C.C.T.C.] to get back to us about it. Only after they are clear vis-À-vis the screens will we take a call," Nikhil Advani tells me.
