  1. Dhoom 3 released on 20 Dec (No Holiday). Sultan 6 July (Pre-Eid). Bang Bang (Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday). We believe in facts..

  2. Why you are trying to underestimate aamir khan? You named aamir after hrithik for most waited movies of stars, then you used fan, dilwaale of srk, prep and sultan of salman but you didn’t mention Dangal. Its clearly shows you are not giving importance to aamir king khan.
