Forget the blog. Aamir Khan, it seeems, wants to take his rivalry with Shah Rukh Khan further. He has decided to push forward the release of his next film,

Ghajini

, by two months.



Yes, the Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster was to have an October 2 release. But now it will be released in the Christmas week.



Reason: Aditya Chopra who's making his comeback after a hiatus of eight years with

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

, has scheduled its release for the year end too.



The Yash Raj production features Shah Rukh and newcomer Anoushka Sharma. The Chopras had announced the release date much before the movie was launched.



Break ho jaaye


According to a source, Aamir has put the brakes on

Ghajini

, and is now concentrating on his nephew Imran Kha's debut film,

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

.



This film co-staring Genelia D'Souza , is headed for a clash with Harman Baweja's

Love Story 2050

on July 4. It will be followed by Sanjay Gadhvi's

Kidnap

, also toplining Imran.



Aamir has been accident prone of late and suffered a few injuries while performing the dangerous action sequences for

Ghajini

. Probably, that's why he's chosen to take a short break.



"Knowing how involved Aamir is with every department of film-making, it will be difficult for the director, AR Murugadoss, to complete the film on his own and keep it to the October 2 deadline," informs the source.



Ghajini

took time to take off because Aamir was completely focussed on his directorial debut

Taare Zameen Par

last year.
