Salman Khan’s forthcoming film Ek Tha Tiger was originally scheduled to release on June 1, 2012, but shifted to hit the screens on the Eid festival day, to accommodate the release of Aamir Khan’s film Dhuan being made by Reema Kagti.
Ek Tha Tiger is being produced by Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films and directed by Kabir Khan. YRF is in the habit of announcing the release date on the day of launching the film itself. Thus June 1, 2012 was announced for Ek Tha Tiger.
Meanwhile, Aditya Chopra has signed in Aamir Khan for Dhoom 3, and so when a request was made by Aamir to shift the release of Salman’s film, the producer pleased both the Khans by adjusting the dates.
Moreover, Salman Khan has a sentiment for Eid release and he also agreed immediately.
