Don’t want my film to be pitted against Aamir’s movie: Dutt

Mumbai (PTI): Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt does not want his comeback film “Bhoomi” to release on the same day when Aamir Khan’s home production “Secret Superstar” hits the screens.

“Bhoomi” was slated for a released on August 4 along with Aamir’s home production “Secret Superstar”, starring Zaira Wasim.

Dutt has requested his producers Bhushan Kumar of T-series and Sandeep Singh to change the release date of his film.

“I know the kind of hard work and effort that goes into making a film. I believe, after all the work being put in, it can’t be reduced to a clash at the box office,” Dutt said in a statement.

“Aamir is a dear friend and I wouldn’t want my comeback film to be pitted against his. In this industry, we should all make an effort to help each other.”

The final decision on the release date will be taken by T-Series and Legend Studios.

Directed by Omung Kumar, “Bhoomi” is a revenge drama and it stars Aditi Rao Hydari as Dutt’s daughter.

“Secret Superstar”, directed by Advait Chandan, narrates the story of a child who aspires to be a singer.
