Today Aamir Khan has announced that his much-anticipated film Secret Superstar will release on Diwali 2017. This has resulted in a big clash with 2.0 starring Rajinikanth.
Now the reports are suggesting that Aamir Khan has made this decision after discussing with Rajinikanth himself. The famous trade analyst Taran Adarsh said, "Aamir himself called Rajini Sir and discussed his concerns vis-à-vis Secret Superstar shifting from August to Diwali. Both the actors share a warm bond and it was with Rajini Sir’s blessings that Aamir has announced a Diwali release for Secret Superstar.”
There were also reports that Aamir Khan has postponed the film as August was already flooding with too many releases. Secret Superstar would have to face Akshay Kumar's Toilet Ek Prem Katha and SRK-Anushka's untitled film in the second week if released on 4 August.
Aamir Khan is an admirer of Rajinikanth and even showed him Dangal before release. Secret Superstar is produced by Aamir Khan Productions and directed by Advait Chandan.
