Will Talaash affect London Ishq?

With Talaash now postponed to November 30th, the big question that everyone seems to be asking – will Shahrukh Khan’s London Ishq get affected?

It’s a scenario that’s quite similar to 2009, when Ghajini released just 13 days after Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Many believe, if Ghajini wouldn’t have released soon after Rab Ne, the later would have gone on to be the first film to cross the 100 crore mark.

But a quick glimpse at the collections of Rab Ne; Week 1 – 42 crore, Week 2 – 25 crore, Week 3 – 9 crore, Week 4 – 5 crore. Quite clearly suggests that the film ‘did not’ crash even after the release of Ghajini. The drops were normal, maybe a little more in Week 3. We’d like to believe, even without Ghajini, the SRK starrer would have collected about 5 crore (at best) more than it did.

Getting back to Talaash and London Ishq, the later is expected to release on 13th of November (Diwali), which is 17 days prior to Talaash. A gap of 2 weeks is sufficient for most films these days, in fact almost 65-70% of money is earned in the first week itself.

What most forget though, is the fact that two other biggies are also scheduled to hit screens this Diwali – Ajay Devgan’s Son of Sardar and Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi 786. If those two films stick on to their announced dates, then, they are more likely to affect London Ishq and not Talaash.

Oh and Dabangg 2 is slated to release 20 days after Talaash! 3 big films, featuring all three Khan’s, November and December will be huge!

People who are saying Aamir is jealous but take it positively since only Aamir can dare to do this since he know he has best stuff…………………to sell. But I am sure Shahrukh never dare to do this i.e. to release a movie nearby Aamir’s release…………………. isn’t it?

Whatever people say…It won’t affect Aamir’s Film nor was Affected…He dares to do what other can’t..So People whoever is saying Aamir is jeaous just think once again calmly “Is there any actor who can risk like that” but the thing is Aamir cares only for his movie and he has a good material there that’s why he can take any chance to release his movie at any time even during your so-called self-claimed King Khan……
anyway Aamir movies has always performed best Ghajini vs Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi…who won????????????????
AAAAMMMMIIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR KKKKKHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNN
look what is now your king khan
AAAmir khan ROcksssssssssssssss

hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Today Many peaple are talking about aamir and talaash coz this is what will happen if you use shahrukh khan’s name.

Using SRK name , clashing SRK movie , taking digs to SRK etc = you will become popular.

Thats what aamir is doing.

Once SRK said ” it is a gift from my allah that i can make peaple famous by using my name “

Talaash would surely affect the BO collection of London ISHQ, like Mere Brother ki Dulhan had affected Bodyguard…Otherwise Bodyguard would have grossed more than 150 crores easily…There was no competition for Ready i.e. it became 2 highest grosser of 2011…

@max it means ur are became mature after 2008 or you was sleeping from long time
amir srk se pehle hi bada star ban chuka tha, wo aaj b srk se bada hai aur kal bhi rahaega
jab talaash aayegi na london ishq ke bad tab tu muh chupane ke kabil b nahi hoga.

Kahaani and taalash r same type of movie. Since kahaani is a superb that even aamir now became frightened. Thats why aamir postponed talaash. Kahaani zindabad. Love every bit of the movie. What a movie.such thriller is best i ever seen in a hindi film.

SRK is true global superstar……No doubt….when rab ne bana di jodi released at that time, mumbai blast on its way…..but SRK was never fear….& his movie got record breaking opening…may wish yash chopra’s next will be bigger hit…Even my college friendz impressed with it’s first look…..they talked about kat & srk daily……..so waiting another veer zaara, ddlj type romantic drama…
