Aamir Khan, a name that is synonymous with quality films, always works on one film at a time and 2013 will be no different. His fans complain that the wait for his films is way too long, but more often than not, the wait is well worth it.
His last release, Talaash, was one of those rare Aamir films that wasn’t universally accepted. Yet, the Reema Kagti directed suspense thriller grossed more than Rs 170 crores worldwide.
This year, Aamir has a full-fledged commercial film that is likely to be 2013’s biggest grosser.
Below is a detailed list of Aamir Khan’s upcoming movies in 2013 and the other projects that he is likely to work on during the course of the year.
Dhoom 3 (Christmas 2013): It’s the last film of the year, and also the most awaited. Starring Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra, Dhoom 3 is the third film in the super-successful Dhoom series. Cars, bikes, babes, glamour, action.. the Vijay Krishna Acharya directed film will have it all.
Box office expectations: Dhoom 3 is releasing during Christmas, a festive slot that Aamir Khan created! Ghajini (2007) was the first Indian film to cross 100 crores, a record that was not only broken but almost doubled a year later by 3 Idiots. Anything less than 200 crores for Dhoom 3 would be a disappointment.
Peekay (release date not announced): Rajkumar Hirani and Aamir Khan return together after 3 Idiots and it simply cannot get any bigger! The film also features Anushka Sharma, Sanjay Dutt and Sushanth Singh Rajput. Very little is known about the film, but sources say, P.K will be a political satire. The first shooting schedule began on Feb 1. Official release date is yet to be announced.
P.K Box Office expectations: If the film gets a holiday release, and the quality is on-par with any of Hirani’s last few films, it could well be the first to enter the 300 crore club. Expectations are unrealistically high, but trust the Aamir-Hirani duo to deliver.
Aamir has also spoken about his plans to continue the popular ‘Satyamev Jayate’ series, not likely to happen in 2013 though.
