Diwali clash: Aamir Khan’s ‘Secret Superstar’ to clash with Rajinikanth’s ‘2.0'


Well, this Diwali we can see the clashes of the titans, Aamir Khan’s ‘Secret Superstar’ is all set to lock-horns with Rajinikanth’s ‘2.0’.

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."

Earlier ‘Secret Superstar’ was scheduled to clash with Sanjay Dutt’s comeback movie,  ‘Bhoomi’ but later the date was postponed and Aamir’s film will face tough fight from Rajinikanh’s ‘2.0’ in which Akshay Kumar is also playing a pivotal role.

When Aamir Khan postponed the release of his film, Sanjay Dutt 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."

Before the ‘PK’ actor declared the release date of his film, he had a conversation with Rajini sir, Aamir's spokesperson says, "Aamir himself called Rajini sir and discussed his concerns with the film releasing as per the earlier August schedule. Both the actors share a warm bond and it was with Rajini sir's blessings that he announced a Diwali release."

‘Secret Superstar’ stars 'Dangal' actress Zaira Wasim in the main lead.

The film spokesperson informs, "The second week from the date of release is important. Two big films releasing on August 11 will hamper the second week showcasing, so we decided to move to another date."

Aamir, on various occasions, has explained his box-office theory, saying, "The best yardstick to see how your film has fared is to check how many weekends the film has run. A film with heavy performances will earn for multiple weekends. It shows how consistently the film earned."
