Aamir Khan’s thriller not to release with Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Don 2’

You all know that Aamir Khan has started shooting for a thriller with Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee. But what you don’t know is that the movie was supposed to release around the same time as Shahrukh Khan’s much-hyped Don 2. Well, the clash has thankfully been averted now.
Aamir Khan’s untitled film, which is a thriller and stars two wonderful Bollywood actresses Kareena and Rani Mukherjee, might have given competition to Shahrukh Khan’s Don 2.
Whenever there is a box office clash between two biggies, it’s obvious that the revenue gets divided, and that’s why the producers don’t want to release their mega-budget, much-publicized films with other movies. No matter who’s the star! And as Reema Kagti’s film is a low-budget one, the makers want to play safe. In fact, both the films are coming from the same production house -- Farhan Akhtar-Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. So why would they take the risk?
But Aamir might love to do that, so he is planning to release his own film Delhi Belly with Don 2. Delhi Belly is a small-budget film and is produced by Aamir Khan Productions. The movie got stuck in production stages as the producer Aamir became busy with wifey’s Dhobi Ghat. The film is directed by Abhinay Deo and has Imran Khan and Shenaz Treasurywala in lead roles.
Aamir has a hundred percent hit record with his production films (save for ‘Dhobi Ghat’), so there is no reason why he wouldn’t like to take the risk. Aamir Khan’s Ghajini and Shahrukh Khan’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi released around the same time in December 2008. Both the films were hits, but Aamir scored better. Will that be the case this time around too?
