3 Khans, 3 movies: How YRF is planning to mint gold at box office in 2017
Every cine buff dreams of seeing the three most powerful Khans of Bollywood together. Every time there is a slightest chance of seeing the Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan come together, fans go in frenzy.
Whenever the three Khans are asked about this, they give somewhat the same answer. That they would want to work together but the idea is not feasible.
Maybe, they are right. It does sound amazing to have SRK, Salman and Aamir on the same screen but writing a script that complements the stardom of the three Khans is almost next to impossible.
However, the production banner Yash Raj Films is about to establish some common ground among the three actors. No, YRF is not planning a movie with them but has come close to doing that.
Next year, YRF has three different movies lined up with three Khans.

This morning it was revealed that Ali Abbas Zafar will direct the sequel of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ titled ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’. This movie will be the third movie of Salman with the YRF banner, the earlier ones being ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Sultan’.
Shah Rukh Khan will hit the screens next year with Aditya Chopra directorial. This will mark the reunion of the duo after 9 years as ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ was released in 2008. Thought more details about this movie have not been revealed, the hopes from this movie have already sky rocketed as SRK and Adi have a history of carving blockbuster movies.
Lastly but definitely not the least, Aamir is said to have come up on board for ‘Thug’, another YRF movie. The movie will reportedly be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya of the ‘Dhoom 3’ fame and will also feature megastar Amitabh Bachchan. ‘Thug’ is an adaptation of Phillip Meadow Taylor's book, Confessions of a Thug.
With the three Khans on board in interesting movies, it would not be wrong to say that YRF may make a lot of money next year. The production house already struck gold with ‘Sultan’ this year, but it seems 2017 is going to be better and bigger. It will, obviously, be worth seeing how the production house promotes all three movies and what box office numbers they achieve.
