Mumbai: While the cold war between Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan continues, the camaraderie between Salman and Aamir Khan is growing leaps and bounds.
The friendship between the two actors has grown from strength to strength over the past few years and both of them go out of their way to help each other whenever the time arises. The latest is that on Aamir Khan’s request, Salman Khan has decided to postpone the release of his film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’.
‘Ek Tha Tiger’ was initially scheduled to release on June 12, 2012. However, Aamir too, wanted his next film being directed by Reema Kagti to release on the same date. Aamir promptly asked buddy Salman to shift the release date of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and Sallu agreed as well.
Salman went and spoke to Aditya Chopra(the producer of ETT) and told him about Aamir’s request. Aditya promptly agreed to the idea and now his film will release during Eid next year.
This isn’t the first time that Reema Kagti’s film’s release date was changed. The film which is yet to be named, was earlier scheduled to release on 26th January. But perfectionist Aamir felt that that post production stage will require some more time and hence the date was changed. Besides, Karan Johar’s ‘Agneepath’ starring Hrithik is also relasing on 26th January and Aamir felt the clash would not be good.
So while Salman has gallantly given friend Aamir June 12 to release his film, Salman and Katrina’s film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ will now release during Eid. And considering that the past three films of Salman’s had an Eid release and were blockbusters, Yash Raj is hoping that the this film would rake in the moolah as well.
