Now this is some big news building up. According to the latest reports Aamir Khan’s Dangal will clash with Baahubali Returns.
Baahubali Returns is trying to target a Christmas 2016 release that is the same date Aamir has reserved for his sports themed film ‘Dangal’. While ‘Baahubali’ will pick their story up from epic summer film, Aamir will be seen in a biopic playing a wrestler.
After a three-month break, the Baahubali shoot was delayed because of pre-production work. It was first scheduled was scheduled to go on floors in September, but was later pushed to November and now December. However reports state that about 30% of the film has already been shot. Aamir on the other hand is well into his film’s shoot and was forced to take a week off because of a minor back injury.
Both film are expected to wrap up in July next year. S. S. Rajamouli will then have to take on the mammoth task of producing state of the art visual effects. Meanwhile, Aamir will have to loose some of the extra pound he put on and regain his ‘PK’ form for the film that will see him play a young and old man.
The first ‘Baahubali’ film, which is believed to be the highest grossing film in the history of Telugu cinema, also went on to collect more than Rs 110 crore in the first few days of its Hindi dubbed Bollywood version. So only sky is the limit for Baahubali 2.
On the other hand there is always a lot of anticipation around Aamir Khan’s movies. Dangal will also be his first release in two years. His last release PK becomes the first film to cross 700 crore worldwide and also is the highest grossing Indian film.
It will be an interesting clash if it happens. Tell us what are your views in the comments section.
