It’s a known fact that Aamir Khan and Ekta Kapoor have been good friends ever since he asked for his Delhi Belly trailer to be ferried along with Ragini MMS. And now the head honcho of Balaji has returned the favor and decided to avoid a clash at the box office for their exciting upcoming films Aamir’s Taalash and Ekta’s Shootout at Wadala.
As we know Aamir had planned the release of his forthcoming film Talaash on November 30 and didn’t want any other big film to release on the same date. Meanwhile Ekta had planned on releasing her keenly awaited Shootout At Wadala on December 7, 2012, a week after the release of the Aamir Khan-starrer. However, the Balaji team has decided to postpone the release to January 18, 2013.
The decision was taken after a closed-door meeting between Ekta, leading man John Abraham, director Sanjay Gupta, and Tanuj Garg, CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures. Everyone felt that there was no point in the two films eating into each other’s business.
Both films are of the dramatic thriller genre with Talaash, directed by Reema Agti also starring Rani Mukerjee and Kareena Kapoor, while Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout at Wadala stars Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Kangna Ranaut, Sonu Sood, Manoj Bajpai, and Tusshar Kapoor.
We say no matter what the release date we are looking forward to seeing both!
