Mumbai: Aamir Khan came out in support of the solo release of Bal Thackeray’s biopic and said that there is no bigger star than Thackeray in Maharashtra and it would be wise to not clash with his biopic.
Speaking to the press at Mantralaya late on Friday evening, Aamir when asked about the clash of Bal Thackeray biopic with other films said, “Every producer wants to release his or her film on a special date. At the same time, they make sure that their films don’t clash with any other big film. I believe that there is no bigger star in Maharashtra than Balasaheb. So, there should be no surprise if the release dates of other movies have been shifted. Everybody wants to watch his film in Maharashtra, so it’s obvious that no producer would want his or her film to clash with Thackeray’s film.”
Emraan Hashmi-starrer Cheat India has already preponed the release to January 18 to avoid clash with Thackeray which is set to release on January 25. While buzz is strong that Manikarnika too might shift Thackeray a solo release, Kangana denied having received anything request from the team of Thackeray.
