While the B-town may be abuzz with the news that Sajid Khan's Saif Ali Khan starrer HUMSHAKALS is set to clash with Aamir Khan's P.K. (PEEKAY) helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, with the two films releasing on same day i.e. June 6, 2014, we wonder if Sajid Khan is really planning to release his film alongside P.K.
SAJID KHAN and AAMIR KHAN
We all know what influence Aamir Khan's films have over audience and Box-office. Also, it is being made by Rajkumar Hirani, who's known to hold cent percent record by giving blockbusters like MUNNABHAI series and 3 IDIOTS. Moreover, this is Aamir and Raju Hirani's second association after 3 IDIOTS, which created a whole new record at the Box-office. And trade is pretty upbeat about Aamir and Hirani's this film.
While on the other hand Sajid Khan's last film HIMMATWALA starring Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah Bhatia was a complete wash-out. Though he gave films like HOUSEFULL and HOUSEFULL 2, HEYY BABYY, which were received well at the Box-office, the failure of HIMMATWALA quite shook the confidence of makers. And Sajid not only received the flak from critics, he was also deplored by the audiences alike!
If the two films are released together, it is quite obvious that Aamir, being a shrewd businessman, would acquire maximum number of screens to release his film P.K., which will anyway hamper the business of Sajid Khan's dear film with Saif Ali Khan.
Considering all these factors, we feel Sajid would re-think or shift the release of his upcoming film, as he is in the dire need to strike back!
