Aamir Khan and Sanjay Dutt had quite an amiable chemistry in Rajkumar Hirani’s PK. While Dutt had more of an extended guest appearance in the film, with Aamir playing the lead, it looks there might be a role reversal for the two superstars, albeit in separate films next year.
Sanjay’s comeback film, Bhoomi, to be helmed by Mary Kom fame Omung Kumar, has announced its release date as the 4th of August. However, Aamir will also be seen in a guest appearance in a separate film called Secret Superstar, which will also release on the same date.
Considering Aamir’s’ guest appearance, this might not be a full blown clash like the way SRK’s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil will compete in January, but it is evident that the two superstars will vie for a slice of the box-office pie with their respective films. As of now, both the films have announced their release dates on the same day, but as is very common in B-Town, there tends to be a back and forth considering the production process. As a source said, “As of now, the casting of the film (Bhoomi) is on. So far, the two things that have been officially confirmed are the facts that Bhoomi would mark Dutt’s comeback on screen and the release date. But as is the saying, there is many a slip between the sip and the lip. Both films are still more than six months away. Much can change in time to come.”
We hope both the films get their due credit and a deserved audience with separate release dates.
