Aamir Khan 'sabotaging' Happy New Year with PK trailer?
Aamir Khan has attached the theatrical trailer of his next, PK with SRK’s Happy New Year — allegedly, without the latter’s knowledge — there were rumours that he might be 'sabotaging' Shah Rukh’s film.bollywood Updated: Oct 16, 2014 09:44 IST
From his greatest hits back in the ’90s — Baazigar (1993) and Dil To Pagal Hai (1997) — to more recent releases such as Om Shanti Om (2007) and RA.One (2011), Shah Rukh Khan has pretty much made the Diwali release period his own.
This year, too, he has a film lined up, Happy New Year.
However, with Aamir Khan now having attached the theatrical trailer of his next with SRK’s film — allegedly, without the latter’s knowledge — there were rumours that he might be ‘sabotaging’ Shah Rukh’s film.
Instead of discussing the trailer launch with Shah Rukh (also the producer of his film), Aamir apparently spoke directly to the exhibitors. Aamir, it seems, also has a promotional event planned on Diwali.
When we asked for a reaction, Aamir denied the allegation, saying, "It’s totally untrue. In the past, too, a lot of my trailers have been launched on Diwali — whether it was Taare Zameen Par (2007), Ghajini (2008) or 3 Idiots (2009). Even when Raju (Rajkumar Hirani; director) and I discussed it (the theatrical trailer’s launch date), we zeroed down on this festive launch."
