There are murmurs from last 2-3 months that Shah Rukh Khan next with Rohit Shetty will get released on Christmas 2015. Now that is confirmed from horses mouth itself. SRK has himself confirmed in recent press con that his next with Rohit Shetty will release this Christmas. With that statement it is now interesting to see whether other films which are lined up for Christmas release will back off or not.
First let's talk about 'Tamasha' starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. Tamasha is tentatively scheduled for release this Christmas. But film is behind its schedule already. Also, Ranbir has multiple releases coming in few months. Taking all into account it looks almost certain that Tamasha will get released in 2016 only now.
That means Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus 'Bajirao Mastani' starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra is only left in race for Christmas release now. But as news arrived that SRK-Rohit Shetty is locked for Christmas, same time there are news coming from Bajirao Mastani corner that film release might not happen in 2015 itself. News is that film has lots of shooting left, specially the action part. Also, lots of VFX work are left for the film.
Question is why such news are surfacing now when SRK-Rohit Shetty next is locked for Christmas. Is that fear of releasing alongside? Or genuinely there are issues with Bajirao Mastani. Anyways at moment looking all prospects this film also might be delayed till next year.
There are few films which are gunning for release this Christmas, but not locked the release date yet. They will not even try to, as who will want to clash with SRK-Rohit Shetty Blockbuster combo. So, heartening news is for all SRK fans that their idol film will get release in Christmas and New Year Holiday Weekend and that also solo. Can't get bigger than anything this. No doubt with such buzz and deadly combination film will take record opening at box office this year end.
