Gajini to release with RNBDJ

(I doubt this clash will happen either but as I was insisting earlier Drona and Gajini will certainly not release together. Taran or Nahata confirming the reverse earlier didn’t mean much. the trade is often not told ‘officially’ until the last minute. And there was a piece about an Aamir family member telling someone. Well Aamir is the last person to tell family members unless the source for that piece was Kiran Rao which I somehow doubt! In any case Drona moving to Oct 2 was a fairly good sign that Gajini wasn’t coming that day.)

Khan versus Khan

It is not new for the Khans of Bollywood. Salman and Shah Rukh Khan have done it. Aamir and SRK have also done it. It can be recalled that SRK’s Don and Salman’s Jaaneman released on the same date during Diwali. Well this time too SRK’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is going to clash with Aamir Khan’s Ghajini .

Earlier Ghajini was clashing with Goldie Behal’s fiction drama Drona which is also one of the biggest films of the year. Apparently Aamir’s film has been delayed due to Aamir’s accident. It was slated to release on October 2nd but now has been shifted to December 12th. Due to this delay it’s now clashing with one of the biggest films of the year. Aditya Chopra’s SRK starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is also releasing on the same day.

However, this is not the first time that Aamir and SRK’s movies are releasing on the same date. Earlier Aamir’s Akele Hum Akele Tum released on the same day when SRK’s Ram Jaane released. Well that time both were unlucky as both the movies failed at the box office.

Apparently Aamir had always gone through such situations as earlier his Dil clashed with Ghayal , Lagaan with Sunny Deol’s Gaddar and his recently released Taare Zameen Par clashed with Welcome . He has been lucky all the time. According to trade analyst Atul Mohan this time the clash will definitely cut into each other’s business but both the Khan’s have their own set of fan following. SRK and Aditya Chopra combination has a edge over Aamir khan’s Ghajni in the overseas market.

Though Aamir has turned out to be a winner all the time, SRK is not far behind. We wish both the Khans luck
