Salman calls Aamir for a favour


The much-awaited release of ‘Dhoom 3’ has been postponed from Christmas 2012 to 2013. Though Yash Raj Films has cited production and post production processes as the reason for this three month shift, industry sources have a different story to tell. The film has been pushed back to accommodate Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg 2’, claim sources. And, it seems, the actor’s good friend and ‘Dhoom 3’ actor Aamir Khan is the one who convinced Yash Raj to change the dates. Reportedly, it was Salman who had asked Yash Raj Films to postpone the release of his film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ from June 1 to Eid simply because Aamir wanted his Reema Kagti directed project to release on that date. Salman believed it wouldn’t be wise to pit the two films against each other. So he called Aamir, and to return Sallu’s favour, Aamir agreed to talk to YRF and convinced them to postpone ‘Dhoom 3’ release to Christmas 2013.
