Seems like there is no stopping Aamir Khan. This ever growing young actor has kept belting one hit after another. In fact, it is hard to remember which one was his last flop? Anyone? Mr. Perfectionist has chosen his movies very wisely and has kept outgrowing himself as an actor. He chooses diverse genres every time and gives it 120%. He is pretty good at marketing strategies as well and one can remember his Ghajini and Rang De Basanti marketing gigs. His recent release 3 Idiots is already making waves and this movie might be helping bollywood in finishing the year on a high. That also reminds me of Aamir Khan’s penchant for December releases and how all of them have performed so well in last 2 years.
December 25 witnessed release of 3 Idiots and whether it is a coincidence or plain planning, his last two December releases had set box office on fire. Taare Zameen Par was released during the same time in 2007 whereas 2008 witnessed blockbuster Ghajini. 3 Idiots has already earned Rs.4 crore through paid previews and is going very strong on box office thanks to no other releases and extended holiday season.
Taare Zameen Par was also Aamir’s directorial debut and movie earned rave reviews because of its different theme and amazing acting. The movie was released on Dec 21 in 2007 and it hit the bull’s eyes. Reports say, movie earned more than 37 crore at the box office. Aamir’s next release Ghajini hit the theatres on Dec 25, 2008 and it broke almost all the box office records. A remake of a Tamil film by the same name, it reinvented action genre. December or no December release, we hope Aamir continues with his hit path.
