Will Aamir Khan’s Talaash block Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi
Khiladi Kumar’s big budget extravaganza will clash with Mr Perfectionist’s crime thriller, but who will win?
Even as the Jab Tak Hai Jaan–Son Of Sardaar face-off is being spoken about and debated, there is a new development happening in B-town. News is that Aamir Khan is using his clout to block Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi 786 with his Talaash – both films will release together. Apparently Aamir is using the same tactics as Yash Raj Films did to block Son Of Sardaar, to ensure that his film with Rani Mukherji and Kareena Kapoor gets a bigger opening. Our feathered friend wants us to believe that Aamir, along with co-producer Farhan Akhtar was taken aback when they first watched the trailer of Khiladi 786, because it looks like a huge crowd-puller.
Talaash might be a good film, given Aamir’s instincts, but it is certainly doesn’t look like a typical Rs 100 crore blockbuster. Khiladi 786, on the other hand, seems like a winner, a massy entertainer that will win popularity points. Our buddy also chirped to us that Aamir is playing the Dhoom 3 card with the Talaash exhibitors. As is obvious, the Dhoom franchise is not one that any exhibitor worth his booking window will let go of. We are not sure if we should believe our informant, but these developments do seem possible.
Do you think Aamir will succeed in blocking Akki’s masala entertainer?
