Aamir Khan, who has ruled the Christmas season for three consecutive years, is being replaced by none other than Shahrukh Khan this year as he's all geared up to enthrall the audience with his December 23, 2011 release DON 2. But, will King Khan's DON 2 surpass the astonishing Box-office record of Aamir's Christmas releases like TAARE ZAMEEN PAR, GHAJINI and 3 IDIOTS?
SHAHRUKH KHAN and AAMIR KHAN
Aamir's 2007 release TAARE ZAMEEN PAR made an approximate collection of Rs. 60.835 crore while the 2008 release GHAJINI made around Rs. 115.000 crore and 3 IDIOTS, which released in 2009, grossed nearly 208.000 crore. Since then Aamir is recognized for December bonanzas. But, this year it is superstar Shahrukh who's taking a chance to taste the success.
Interestingly, the dialogue promos and songs of SRK's DON 2 have created the required buzz. A series of DON 2 dialogues have been released which people have liked. Moreover, DON is an established franchise. So SRK can take a sigh of relief. However, his last release RA.ONE which received mixed responses from both critics and audiences may have an adverse effect on DON 2. CHECK OUT: Farhan Akhtar- SRK knows Don better than before
Apart from SRK, Priyanka Chopra's last release 7 KHOON MAAF also proved to be a disaster. But, the actress still remains to be amongst the top actresses in Bollywood and people are once again looking forward to see the sizzling chemistry between Don and his 'Junglee Billi'.
Akshay Kumar also tried his luck to make the most of the said festive season in 2010. But unfortunately, his December 24 release TEES MAAR KHAN did not fare well at the box-office despite Katrina Kaif 's hot item song 'Sheila Ki Jawani' and huge promotions of the film.
So, will King Khan recreate the magic and surmount Mr. Perfectionist's box-office quotient? Do let us know.
