We all know that the Aamir Khan starrer Dangal, was scheduled to release for Christmas, 2016 and now it looks like the actor has changed his mind and wants the movie to be released on the Independence day, competing with Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro and Akshay Kumar's Rustom.
A trade insider was quoted as saying, "This is shocking as Aamir had already reserved the Christmas Day weekend for Dangal. And advancing like this, and that too by a good four months, is unprecedented. More than anything else, this disturbs the Bollywood release calendar in a major way since there are biggies involved."
The trade insider was quoted as saying,
"In fact, the week prior to X'mas has been left vacant and even
Aditya Chopra decided to bring his Ranveer Singh-starrer Befikre on
December 9, so that Aamir gets a clean slate. The next major
biggies after Dangal are Baadshaho and Kaabil, which arrive on
January 26, 2017. He'd be getting four straight weeks for his film,
had he stuck to his original release date."
To Make A Comeback In Shahrukh Khan's Fan!
However, no official confirmation has been given out by the film-makers of Dangal and Aamir Khan has not spoken about the issue as well. Whatever it is, we hope the Dangal actor makes a smart choice by not making a clash with Akshay Kumar's Rustom and Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro.
Dangal, would have a free run if it's released during Christmas,
2016 as planned and Aamir Khan, would have no other big competition
for his movie. Preponing Dangal, might be a risk for Aamir Khan and
can also cause serious threat to Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan. The
axe may swing any way.
