It is a known fact that all top superstars opt for a holiday release of their films. However one waits to see if there would be an exception next year, what with all holidays already been booked and release date of Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani's 'P.K.' not been announced yet.
"Is Shahrukh Khan's name is synonymous with Diwali, Aamir was the first to make Christmas his own before Akshay Kumar joined the fray as well. Meanwhile Salman Khan has made Eid his own," comments a trade insider, "However things are seeing a sea change in next year."
This is evidenced from the fact that Salman Khan is bringing his MENTAL on the Republic Day weekend, Yash Raj's GUNDAY and Sajid Nadiadwala's HEROPANTI is coming on Valentine's Day, Hrithik Roshan's BANG BANG is coming on the Labour Day, Emraan Hashmi-Kareena Kapoor's next is arriving on Independence Day, Salman's KICK is releasing on Eid, Hrithik's SHUDDHI is all set for Diwali release and Ranbir Kapoor, the new entrant as far as top superstars is concerned, has set his eyes for Christmas release of BOMBAY VELVET.
"This leaves only Gandhi Jayanti as the remaining National holiday," an observer comments, "Since next few months would see Shahrukh Khan's HAPPY NEW YEAR and Akshay Kumar's GABBAR going on floors as well, the only available holiday would have many takers. Of course Aamir is the one whose film is already on floors which means he could well be the topmost candidate currently."
While Aamir is currently working on DHOOM 3, there is no hint being thrown around release plans for P.K.. Now one looks forward to an announcement soon to see which holiday slot does the film finds itself in.
