The year 2018 has been the year of clashes at the box office. While a fight-off between big stars rarely leads to smart profits, they at times become inevitable. Inevitability seems to be the reason why Bollywood may witness a massive box office clash between superstars Aamir Khan and Rajinikanth. Khan who is currently shooting for Thugs of Hindostan said that he expects to release his film around Diwali on November 7.
While Mr. Perfectionist mentioned that the release date is special for him as it falls on his wife, filmmaker Kiran Rao’s birthday. But the release date may not be such a smooth sailing and even Aamir is aware of it. Rajinikanth starrer 2.0 is also speculated to be releasing at the same time since it will possibly fail to meet its April release date.
Aamir mentioned looking forward to 2.0 and his wish to watch it too but he is wary of a clash. “I don’t know when 2.0 is releasing. It’s a big film directed by Shankar and Rajinikanth is there too who is a mega star. So if they clash with us it will be a huge problem,” he said.
Repeated missed deadlines by team 2.0 has left several wondering when the film will see light. For big stars its release will disrupt releases for others. Khan a pro-businessman would never want his film’s earnings compromised.
Thugs of Hindostan stars Amitabh Bachchan along with Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. While little has been revealed about the film, it will be a period drama adventure fiction.
