Aamir Khan is known for his film releases during Christmas. Be it 'Ghajini', '3 Idiots', 'Dhoom 3' or 'PK', they all have been box office winners during that festive season. But if reports are to be believed then his upcoming wrestler 'Dangal' might be released on the Independence day instead since his film is high on patriotism.
A Hindustan Times report quoted an insider as saying, "In all likelihood, Aamir is going to move the film’s release date to the August 15 weekend. Since the movie is almost ready, doing so shouldn't be an issue. He feels that since the film strongly showcases love for the nation, it would be perfect to bring the movie out on Independence Day."
Further in a yet-to-be aired interview Aamir had said, "It is a patriotic film, and [talks] about the empowerment of the daughters of India, where I play the role of a father to four daughters. It is a very patriotic and emotional story. So, I believe that the best day to release this film would be August 15.”
Do you think that this is a wise move considering there are already two films lined up for an Independence weekend- 'Rustom' and 'Mohenjo Daro'?
