Aamir, Salman and SRK join hands
Irrespective of their numerous internal squabbles, for this one time all the Khans have come together. Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have both sent consent letters to the producers’ body that they are standing by the film-funders and not the multiplexes in the current stand-off plaguing the celluloid industry.
What’s more interesting is that Salman Khan (who has sworn to never patch up with SRK post their rift at Katrina Kaif’s birthday) too has joined SRK and Aamir by telling the producers that he is on their side. Saif Ali Khan, we have learnt, will also show his allegiance to the film-makers and not the exhibitors.
Mukesh Bhatt, chairman of the producers’ body, says, “It is true that we have got consent letters from the big Khans in the film fraternity. As you know, all of them have turned producers and so they are on our side and not the multiplexes. We want to show the multiplexes that we all are together in this fight.” Interestingly, Aamir is very close to PVR as he forged a partnership with the company for his directorial debut Taare Zameen Par.
Earlier, a source had tipped us about the development, “When the core committee of the producers’ body took a decision to ban the multiplexes, they asked all the producers for consent on the decision. The Khans were approached too as they all own production houses. Being producers, they had to side the funding body.”
