Aamir Khan's upcoming flick Dangal went on floors last week and Salman Khan's movie Sultan would start roling in November. Salman's Sultan, would release next Eid, and Aamir's Dangal would release next year during Christmas.
A source close to the movie was confirmed as saying, "Aamir is concerned about the similarities between the two films. He has worked really hard for Dangal, even putting on over 30 kgs risking his health in the bargain. Now, with Sultan is releasing before Dangal, he's worried that his film might suffer."
When contacted Salman Khan about the issue, the Being Human personality laughed it off and assured Aamir does not need to worry as Dangal has a beautiful story of its own. The Dabbang star was quoted as saying,
"Aamir doesn't need to worry at all. Dangal has a beautiful script. Aamir plays a father in the film. In Sultan, I don't have any children. I just have to battle my opponents in the ring. There is no negative force in Sultan, there's just me and a love story that takes the story forward."
Aamir learnt that Sultan crew are looking out for the same locations in Haryana, so he called up Aditya Chopra and asked him to change the location to Punjab.
Since both movies are being shot in Haryana with wrestling as the story, Aamir feels the audience would find Dangal being repetative, Aamir called up Aditya Chopra and asked him to change the location to Punjab.
Aditya Chopra, of course did not agree to Aamir's requests. Director of Sultan, Ali Abbas Zafar, chips in, "Dangal and Sultan are two very different films. Theirs is a biopic. Ours isn't. Sultan is about this fictional character of the same name, in a very real, rural set-up."
Aamir Khan is afraid that Salman Khan's Sultan may cause serious threat to his upcoming flick Dangal as both the movies concept is the same, which is Wrestling.
Aamir Khan realized his movie Dangal's location in Haryana would also be used by Salman's Sultan, ends up calling Aditya Chopra to change location to Punjab. Aditya Chopra, of course did not accept the request.
