Nor­mal for pro­duc­ers to avoid clash with Thack­eray: Aamir Khan

Asian Journal - - TAX -

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.
