. He’s been part of three back-to-back blockbusters that released during the Christmas weekend in the past — Taare Zameen Par (2007), Ghajini (2008) and 3 Idiots (2009). And although the actor doesn’t have any more releases this year, if all goes well, his next movie Dhoom 3 is expected to hit the screens next Christmas.


Meanwhile, Rajkumar Hirani’s P.K., which was earlier rumoured to have a year-end release, might not be completed on time. “Aamir has already completed a long shooting schedule for Dhoom:3 in Chicago. He was supposed to start shooting for P.K. in January, but in all likelihood, the first half of 2013 will be devoted to wrapping up Dhoom:3. As a result, P.K. might not be completed in time for a Christmas release,” says a trade insider.


Although the film hasn’t gone on the floors yet, P.K. has already been making news. Besides the casting, the film’s shooting dates have also been in the news. The project was supposed to take off in October, but it didn’t start on schedule. Later, the director had stated that he would start the shoot in December with leading lady Anushka Sharma. But now it’s believed that the film will hit the floors only by mid-January 2013.


Other than Anushka, the film also stars TV actor Sushant Singh Rajput. In the past, names such as Imran Khan and Ranbir Kapoor were also doing the rounds for Sushant’s part. “Everyone knows that Aamir wants to focus on one movie at a time. So, he isn’t in a big hurry to start P.K. The movie will be shot in and around Rajasthan and Delhi,” says the source.

On the other hand, Aglaia has ascertained that  Dhoom:3 producers Yash Raj Films (YRF) have huge plans for the film’s release. The multi-starrer project also features Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff, Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra.
