Normal for producers to avoid clash with Thackeray: Aamir Khan
There is no bigger star than Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray in Maharashtra and it would not be surprising if a producer decides against releasing his or her film on the day a movie on the late political leader hits theatres, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan said Friday.
The superstar, who is also a filmmaker, said producers always look for a “good date” to release their films.
The 53-year-old actor added it was “normal” for producers to not release their respective movie on a date when another big film is hitting theatres.
Khan’s comments came amid media reports claiming that release of two flicks Cheat India and Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi – was being postponed in view of a film on Thackeray making it to theatres on January 25 to avoid a clash of the three movies at the box office.
