Box Office Clash : This Time Its Aamir Versus Rajinikanth & Akshay

The film was earlier supposed to release on August 4 but now it will release on Diwali weekend.

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is all set to make the festival of Diwali more grand this year.

However, the film will now hit the silverscreen during Diwali.

Diwali weekend just got a lot better for the audience as Aamir Khan has made a decision to release his new film that was earlier scheduled to hit the theatre screens on August 4, Secret Superstar will now be released in Diwali 2017. Aamir Khan is known to invest every bit of his dedication in his productions.

The showcasing of SECRET SUPERSTAR in its second weekend is equally important and if SECRET SUPERSTAR would've released on its original date [4 August 2017], the showcasing of the film would be marginalised since a majority of screens + shows would be occupied by the two new releases, starring SRK and Akshay. So with Aamir Khan shifting the release date of his film further by a few months, we once again have a clash guaranteed.

While no information has been provided about the reason for the postponement of the release, one wonders if Aamir made a decision to push it ahead to avoid a box office clash with Shah Rukh Khan and Imtiaz Ali's next that will hit the screens on August 11, a week after Secret Superstar was supposed to open in theatres (August 4).

"Secret Superstar" is produced by Aamir along with Zee Studios. And, Rajinikanth's sci fi flick Robot 2, titled "2.0" was always touted as a Diwali 2017 release, the movie will see Akshay Kumar playing the protagonist. Well, since Aamir shares a close bond with Rajinikanth, called him and discussed the repercussions.
