Madhur Delays Dil to Bacha… for Aamir’s Dhobi Ghat

Is Madhur Bhandarkar afraid of Aamir Khan? Or he delayed his forthcoming flick, Dil to Bacha… to express his gesture toward Aamir Khan. Madhur’s flick was slated to release on January 26 as the filmmaker wanted to take an advantage of the national holiday but now he delayed till 28 January.

Apparently, Aamir’s Dhobi Ghat is set to release on January 21 as Aamir wanted a clean week without any other releases. A source says,

“Madhur and producer Kumar Mangat announced the release date of Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji as January 26. But Aamir realised that Madhur’s film will then run in the first week of his film.

So, he requested his friends in UTV to ask Madhur to change the release date to 28th. Since Madhur is on very good terms with UTV, he agreed.”

“Aamir is known to be a marketing genius. He has always maintained that Dhobi Ghat is the best film ever to have come out of his production house. But he did not want his film to clash with another before the end of the first week.”

When contacted, Madhur Bhandarkar confirmed that the film has been postponed to 28th again. However, he refused to comment on why he changed it.
