We have barely stepped into the second half of 2011, but film-makers and also actors are already making plans for 2012. Timing the release of a film in the festive week or soon after the school/college examination period or the conclusion of IPL cricket matches has become a custom already, with producers/actors already staking claim on the prime dates in 2012.
The festival period is a big favorite and everyone knows that releasing a film during Eid, Diwali and Christmas can yield rich dividends. At least, the opening weekend business would be humungous, like in the case of TEES MAAR KHAN [which sank without a trace subsequently due to poor content]. Yash Raj has already 'occupied' Diwali [Yash Chopra-directed film with SRK] and Christmas [DHOOM 3], while EK THA TIGER will arrive soon after the IPL cricket matches conclude on 27 May. Also confirmed for this date [1 June] is HOUSEFULL-2.
It's become a habit to expect a Salman Khan release during Eid and next year will be no exception, with Salman's SHER KHAN, directed by brother Sohail Khan, slated for release in the festive week. In fact, like READY and BODYGUARD, there won't be too big a time difference between the release of Salman starrers next year, EK THA TIGER and SHER KHAN. That's not all, 26 January [Republic Day] will witness the release of Aamir Khan's Reema Kagti-directed film, while 15 August [Independence Day] will have the sequel to ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI hitting the screens.
Now let's see which actor/film-maker stakes the claim on Pongal, Mahashivratri, Holi, Mahaveer Jayanti, Good Friday, Buddha Purnima, Janmashtami, Ganesh Chaturthi, Gandhi Jayanti, Dashehra, Guru Nanak Jayanti and other public holidays next year.
