Ranbir Kapoor might have made a friendly appearance with Aamir Khan in PK, but it seems he’s all set to take on Aamir next year. As things stand today, the films of both actors are expected to clash in December 2016.
Ranbir Kapoor’s next film, which is being directed by Ayaan Mukerji and Aamir Khan’s next film Dangal which is being directed by Nitesh Tiwari are all set to release during the Christmas weekend of 2016.
It can be recalled that in July 2014, Karan Johar had announced on a social networking site about the release of Ranbir’s next which also stars Alia Bhatt. ‘Ayan Mukerjee’s next for Dharma productions is slated to begin mid next year and release December 23rd, 2016. Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt,’ Karan Johar had written.
And just yesterday, the release date of Dangal was announced by UTV Motion Pictures on a social networking site. “#DisneyIndia comes together with @aamir_khan for #Dangal, directed by #NiteshTiwari. Set to hit cinemas on Christmas weekend 2016!” read the post.
Interestingly, Ranbir & Aamir were pitted against each other when their films Bombay Valvet and PK were scheduled to release in Christmas 2014. But, Ranbir’s BOMBAY VELVET got postponed & is now scheduled to release in May 2015.
Since there’s still quite some time for Christmas 2016, let’s wait and watch if there’s any change in the release dates of any of the films.
