Mumbai: Actors Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan were all set to clash at the Box Office on Christmas this year, when the films of two superstars was set to release on the same day. Shah Rukh’s ‘Don2’ and Reema Kagti’s film which stars Aamir, Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor were slated to release on the same day. However, plans seem to have changed.

Shah Rukh’s film will release as per the earlier set date, but Aamir’s film will be released on a later date. Sources close to Reema’s film have stated that the producer don’t want to take any chance as ‘Don’ was a big hit, and so its sequel is eagerly awaited. Apparently, producer’s felt that Aamir’s film being a small budget venture might be overshadowed.

The perfectionist Khan let the producer and the director decide on when the film should be released. In the past, Aamir’s ‘Ghajini’ and SRK’s ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ had released around the same time. And both the films had brought in major moolah for the filmmakers.

The good thing is that fans of both SRK-Aamir won’t have to decide which film to watch first. They will now be able to enjoy both the films equally.
