Finally, the speculated release clash between Aamir Khan starring PK and Ranbir Kapoor's Bombay Velvet has been avoided to some extent as makers of PK have decided to hit the theatres a week prior to Christmas.
Earlier it came down as a shocker for Anurag Kashyap when makers of PK declared to release the film on Christmas as Anurag made his plan to release Bombay Velvet on Christmas in advance. Initially, PK was supposed to get released on June. Since then, there has been some sort of cold war between Anurag Kashyap and Rajkumar Hirani regarding the release dates.
However, now Anurag can finally have a little sigh of relief as makers of PK announced the release date as December 19, while Anurag Kashyap stuck to December 25. "Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films, in association with Disney India, confirm that PK shall release on December 19, 2014," said a statement.
It was assumed that most of Aamir's films get released around the X-Mas day which proved to be super hits and so, the director wanted to keep the lucky trend going.
The Aamir Khan starring movie PK happens to be a satire about God and god-men and has Anushka Sharma, Boman Irani, Sanjay Dutt among others.
While, Ranbir Kapoor's Bombay Velvet is a neo noir drama which will reflect on the journey of Mumbai turning into a metropolis amidst love, greed and violence.
