“Shahrukh came with Chennai Express in Eid, (considered Salman Khan’s date) and broke records. Now if he has a release on X’Mas (which belongs to Aamir Khan) and shatter box-office figures, it will be the ultimate high. Even though Aamir has not made an announcement yet for December 2015, he has released his last three films have released on that date,” said an industry insider.
If Shah Rukh does this project, it will mark his comeback to Dharma Production after 2010 hit movie My Name Is Khan. This time, Karan Johar will only make a part in the project as a producer as Karan Malhotra is directing the film.
