Christmas my lucky date, says Aamir Khan
New Delhi: After rocking the box office last year with Christmas release 'Dhoom 3', superstar Aamir Khan has once again locked the festive season for 'P.K.'. He confesses that X’mas is "lucky" for him.
Aamir took to microblogging website Twitter to share his views.
"Hey guys, 'P.K.' release date is finally locked...This Christmas (Dec 25)...My lucky date! 'Jai Ho'!" Aamir tweeted Monday.
The actor previously tasted box office successes with 'Taare Zameen Par', 'Ghajini' and '3 Idiots' and interestingly, all of them came out during X’mas.
If 'Taare Zameen Par', the story of a dyslexic child, which was Aamir's directorial debut, came out on December 21 and earned Rs.37 crore, action-thriller 'Ghajini' hit the screens December 25, 2008. A remake of Tamil film of the same name, it earned Rs.200 crore (approximately $41 million) in less than two weeks.
It was followed by '3 Idiots', which released on December 23, 2009. Loosely based on Chetan Bhagat's novel "Five Point Someone", it criticized the education system in India without being too preachy.
The movie, which saw Aamir essaying a 22-year-old college student convincingly, grossed Rs.315 crore ($70 million) globally in 19 days since its release.
Aamir's 'Dhoom 3' came out on December 20, 2013, and raked in Rs.501.35 crore ($83.56 million) worldwide in 17 days of its release.
Keeping the past record in mind, one can say that X’mas could be lucky for "P.K.", which also features Anushka Sharma.
