The race is on…
Aamir Khan refuses to change the release date of nephew Imran Khan's debut vehicle Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na for Harry Baweja's son Harman's debut film Love Story 2050
Aamir Khan is not prepared to make any changes in his nephew Imran Khan's debut film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na even if it's old friend Harry Baweja who is making the request for a change.
Harry asked Aamir to postpone the release date of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na as it coincides with that of the release of his own son Harman's debut film Love Story 2050. The Harman - Priyanka starrer is also slated to release on June 4.
(correction July 4! They don't proof read their articles anymore!)
Baweja, who is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that Harman enters Bollywood with a bang, is quite perturbed about this clash of dates. He felt it would only be unfair if the two newcomers are pitted against each other on their first film itself.
So, he thought that requesting Aamir, who is an old friend, would solve matters. Aamir however, was in no mood to make a compromise even with something as small as a release date.
Says an industry insider, "Harry Baweja knows Aamir very well. He approached Aamir and told him that it would be unfair to both the newcomers if their debut films are both released on the same day. It would result in unfair comparisons between them."
But Aamir simply refused to make any changes as he has been planning out all details of the film's release over the last few weeks.
Confirms a source from Aamir Khan Productions, "Aamir has made a lot of preparations with Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. He is even more engrossed in planning the film's release, as he is not shooting for Ghajini right now."
We hear that Imran's next film Kidnap which also stars Sanjay Dutt and will be directed by Sanjay Ghadvi is releasing in August. So, Aamir couldn't possibly release both of Imran's films back to back. No wonder his friend's request had to be put on a hold.
The source says, "This is Aamir Khan Production's third film. A similar situation took place with Lagaan and Taare Zameen Par which were both released on the same date as Gadar - Ek Prem Katha and Welcome. However, both of these films were very successful."
No wonder, Aamir is not at all worried about Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na being released on the same day as Harry's big budget Love story 2050. We can't wait to see who wins the race this time.
Here we go again!!!
I like Harman I like Harman I like Harman
Imran and Harmaan rhyme. How cute! I am gonna like Harman whether I like him on screen or not. I have decided to like him if that's possible...I mean I am not sure if you can decide to like someone...oh well...
