2015 was touted to be a special one for the three Khans, Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir considering the trio turn 50 this year. There will be an alteration in the way the trio will be choosing their films for the coming years.
Well, 2016 is already looking quite bright for the three Khans since they have an amazing line-up. There is something similar in all their upcoming releases, wondering what? Interestingly, the Khans seem to choosing a newer lot of directors for their upcoming films. Even though Raees, Fan, Dangal and Sultan may be coming from power house production houses, the directors for all these films have in their previous works, not achieved much box office success.
Lets have a look at Khans and their upcoming films and their directors.
Shah Rukh Khan has two releases lined up for next year, Fan and Raees. While Fan is directed by Maneesh Sharma who has previously helmed average films like Shuddh Desi Romance and Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, his debut film Band Baaja Baaraat was the only film that succeeded at the box office. Interestingly, Shah Rukh Khan teams up with him for Fan and even calls it one of the most honest works he has ever done.
His Eid release for 2016 is Raees and the film is helmed by Rahul Dholakia, the national-award winning director of Parzania. The director is known for his non-commercial works and well, Shah Rukh working with him is quite a surprise for many of us.
Salman Khan has had an extraordinary year so far. Kabir Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan received tremendous success and now the star is all set for his Diwali release, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which has been directed by Sooraj Barjatya.
In the meanwhile, Salman has already started shooting for his next, Sultan. The film which is a YRF produced drama, will have him playing a Haryanvi wrestler. The film is being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar who has previously directed YRF films like Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Gunday. Both the films have not performed upto the mark at the box office.
Aamir Khan will not be having a release this year but the actor is surely working hard on his upcoming film Dangal. The film which is a biopic on India’s well known wrestler, Mahavir Phogat, has Aamir all beefed up and learning wrestling in Punjab. The film is being directed by Nitesh Tiwari who had last directed Amitabh Bachchan starrer Bhoothnath Returns and also Chillar Party.Stay tuned for more with www.cinenewz.com also on : Tweet to @Its_CineNewz
