It seems our Bollywood stars fear Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan and his movies. Since everyone is aware that Aamir Khan films have always struck gold when they have released in December, no one in the industry wants to risk their movie’s release along with Khan’s flicks.
|PK POSTER, ABHISHEK BACHCHAN, AJAY DEVGN and EMRAAN HASHMI|
With Aamir Khan’s PK slated to arrive on December 19 many production houses are planning to schedule their releases almost two weeks before PK hits the screens!
While T-Series’ Abhishek Bachchan-Asin starrer ALL IS WELL was the first to declare its release on December 5, 2014, it has been joined by Dharma Productions’ UNGLI starring Emraan Hashmi and Kangana Ranaut. And now Eros International too is eyeing the same date for the release of their film ACTION JACKSON starring Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha.
Interestingly, Sanjay Kapoor’s Arjun Kapoor-Sonakshi Sinha starrer TEVAR, which got postponed to January 9, 2015 release, was also scheduled for December 5 release. Not just that, but even Saif Ali Khan and Ileana D’Cruz’s HAPPY ENDING, which is now releasing on November 21, 2014, was earlier scheduled for December 5 release.
Well going with the above details, it seems our B-town people are very well aware about the storm that Aamir Khan creates at the box office and hence none of them is ready to arrive a week before or after PK, forget about releasing the film on same date i.e. December 19, 2014!
However, it would be interesting to see the fate of ACTION JACKSON, ALL IS WELL and UNGLI at the box-office as currently the films have been slated to arrive on December 5, 2014.
