This Diwali, it would be Aamir Vs. Rajinikanth and here is the reason!
Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar and Rajinikanth’s 2.0 is ready to lock horns with each other this Diwali. Seems like, you won’t be needing firecrackers anymore to bedazzle your Diwali celebrations.
Hindi movie critic and business analyst, Taran Adarsh, shared the news by tweeting, "#BreakingNews: Aamir Khan Productions' #SecretSuperstar will now release in Diwali 2017. Zee Studios presents. Directed by Advait Chandan."
Aamir was earlier supposed to release the film, which is made under his production, with Sanjay Dutt's comeback movie "Bhoomi" on August 4.
However, Dutt later released a statement, saying, "Aamir is a dear friend and I wouldn't want my comeback film to be pitted against his. In this industry, we should all make an effort to help each other."
The final decision on the release date of Dutt's film has not yet been announced.
"Secret Superstar" also features "Dangal" actress Zaira Wasim in the lead with Aamir in an extended cameo.
The previously annonuced release date of "Secret Superstar" was also one week prior to the release of Shah Rukh Khan's next with Imtiaz Ali and Akshay's "Toilet-Ek Prem Katha".
It will be the second biggest box office clash after Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees" and Hrithik Roshan's "Kaabil" this year.
