3 IDIOTS on 25th December.
KITES on 15th January.
VEER on 29th January.
MY NAME IS KHAN on 12th February.
Four biggies, starring Aamir, Hrithik, Salman and SRK, respectively, will arrive within a span of two months. The question is, will low cost and medium-budget films get the right exposure at cineplexes? Or will they get sidelined due to these colossal ventures?
Incidentally, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK was confirmed for 12th February, provided MY NAME IS KHAN doesn’t arrive on that date. “When Karan [Johar] confirmed that MY NAME IS KHAN is indeed arriving on 12th February, I immediately took a call to shift KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK to a latter date. My film will now arrive on 26th February,” Ritesh informs me.
However, one more biggie is slated for 12th February release – Ambika Hinduja’s TEEN PATTI. Will it stick to that date or arrive later, is to be seen.
