The Diwali weekend just got grander as two of the country’s biggest superstars are hitting theatres during the time. Aamir Khan Productions’ Secret Superstar, which was supposed to release in August this year, has been moved to Diwali and will now clash with Rajinikanth-starrer 2.0.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed the news of the shift in Secret Superstar’s release date on Twitter and wrote, “#BreakingNews: Aamir Khan Productions' #SecretSuperstar will now release in Diwali 2017. Zee Studios presents. Directed by Advait Chandan (sic).”

What made Aamir take the step? Well, according to Taran, if Secret Superstar would’ve released on its original date [4 August 2017], the showcasing of the film would be marginalised since a majority of screens + shows would be occupied by the two new releases – Imtiaz Ali’s Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer and Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.

It is also said that Aamir called up Rajinikanth and discussed his concerns with respect to the shift in Secret Superstar’s release date. Both superstars share a warm bond and it is with Rajinikanth’s nod that Aamir has announced a Diwali release for Secret Superstar.

You may recall that Secret Superstar was earlier supposed to clash with Sanjay Dutt’s Bhoomi but the latter requested the makers to shift its date.

“Aamir is a dear friend and I wouldn’t want my comeback film to be pitted against his. In this industry, we should all make an effort to help each other,” Sanjay had said.

On the flip side, two big films releasing together is never good news for the makers or distributors since the business is bound to get divided. However, looks like this step was the need of the hour.
