Stage set for Rohit-SRK film as Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani get postponed

At the beginning of the year, Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha starring Ranbir Kapoor – Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani featuring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, were the two big releases for Christmas this year.

Then came rumours of Rohit Shetty and Shahrukh Khan planning a film together and releasing it during the lucrative Christmas weekend.

About a couple of weeks ago, the makers of Tamasha decided to postpone their film. Now, a reliable source has informed us that Sanjay Leela Bhansali too has decided to push Bajirao Mastani to April / May 2016, as the post-production of the film won’t be complete by Christmas. Major portions of Bhansali’s ambitious film are yet to be shot.

The stage is set for the big announcement by Rohit Shetty, which is expected to be made later this month. Shahrukh Khan, Varun Dhawan, Kajol and Alia Bhatt (or Kriti Sanon) are likely to headline the massive star cast. The film goes on floors next month.



  • Would be better for Srk to concentrate fully on “FAN” as we are expecting to watch “Baazigar” or “Darr” type of ‘Rahul’ once more time.

  • Gud news for srk fans who will be stammering n bleating at this news…….!! ….

    But PRDP n Dilwaale will be Affected by Jagga jasoos ……..!! …

    Dilwaale will not be watched becoz ppl will already interest in Jagga Jasoos……..!! ..

    PRdp business eaten by jagga jasoos..

    Ranbir beat Khans !! … Khans done n dusted ….!

  • It should release on 25th December and hence should break all existing opening day and weekend year holiday falls on its 2nd Friday so Thursday can be rock steady..

  • its Confirmed – SRK , Kajol , Varun & Kriti in Rohit’s #Dilwaale. Shooting starts in March end in Goa with Varun & Kriti .

  • I heard that, It is remake of tamil film Aarambam staring Ajith,Nayantara,Arya,Taapsee Pannu.
    I think SRK,Katrina,Varun,Kriti will play the role respectively.

  • Good decision,
    Now want a good release date too.Four or five days before Christmas,
    then anything can happen…
    now hope for the best.Cheers

  • Whatta news!

    SRK & Kajol together. Awesome.

    Not a fan of SRK, but this man has the guts to try something new all the time.
    From MNIK to to Don 2 to JTHJ to CE to HNY….All different genres and all successful. That’s a staggering feat.

  • I think it was bound to happen . Tamasha was postponed because the shooting is pending . Bajirao Mastaani is an ambitious project for SLB hence he will take his time to release BM . This is a real good news for SRK fans and now He has also an equal chance to give the Highest Grosser of the year . If Fan will release in 2015 then that will be double treat for alll SRKians . I hope Rohit does something better . I want to see a good movie from Rohit and SRK this Christmas .

  • That looks like a question mark on kriti? Makes sense why they would want alia…she had more box pull and her pairing with varun is very popular…all ingredients for a sure-shot blockbuster this film

  • everyone is expecting records from Dilwale as it has rohit shetty,good starcast,good release date , but no one expecting from FAN bcoz it has only and only srk.
    srk is no more a solo superstar.

  • wow! now happy it got solo release date .
    rohit shetty should announce 18 of december.
    then 300 crore is as easy as winking!
    love u srk waiting for the bigggest blockbuster surpassing pk’s records worldwide.
    RIP records!
    now haters are trembling with fear lest their so called emotionist khan’s is in danger maybe 400 crore who nos.
    400 crore domistic
    800 crore worldwide.

  • Christmas will be torturous this yr like it was in 2011…. Nothing decent to watch in theatres just fat lungi wearing baddies n exploding cars every 30 seconds…. Koyla 2 this yr like Don 2 in 2011- both torturous craps

  • Now lets see if can cross 200 crore, which seems impossible as there is no Deepika. Srk without Deepika means 150 crore max.

  • it should not release on 25th of december.
    either 18 december or 23 of december
    but if it releases on 18 december it can trend well also it can pick up when christmas gets nearer.
    my prediction:
    18 1st day: 32 crore
    2nd day : 29 crore
    3rd day: 39 crore
    4rd: 18 crore
    5th: 17 crore
    6th : 19 crore
    7th: 27 crore
    8th: 25
    9th: 29 crore
    lifetime : 300+
    but if it releases on 25th dec then.
    1st day: 45 to 54 crore
    2nd day 35 crore
    3rd 40 crore
    lifetime: 290 crore only time will tell.
    i wish christmas had fallen on wednesday it did not matter if they released on christmas on 5 days before christmas.
    whatever, i hope for the best.
    nowadays, khans movies do well in its weekend so it should have week holiday in order to trend well and holds well.
    best of luck rohit and srk sir!

  • Oh Noo! ! I wanted to see Bajirao Mastani in 2015! Now it will compete with Mohenjodaro for best actor/director/film at award fuction -_- anyway, we hrithikians are brave!

  • no good or big movies in the coming months I guess for the superstars.. so do we have to stop going to cinema as there’re no releases for them this year!!

  • Dilwale is just another movie for us.Actually we are waiting for the ultimate content rich FAN.
    Suppose FAN collects 45crs on Sunday..OK
    Now as you all know films business falls by 50-60% on monday but in case of FAN it will increase..SO it will collect 50crs on monday..
    Now ask why??
    Answer is FAN is extremely rich in Content.
