Akshay Kumar's 'Bachchan Pandey' has a new release date, all thanks to Aamir Khan.
That's right. Kumar has opted to bow out of a box-office clash with Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha - an official remake of Hollywood's much loved Forrest Gump.
It will now release on January 22, 2021.
Khan took to Instagram to make the announcement.
In a Tweet, Aamir Khan also acknowledged that all it took was "one conversation" to change things around.
Sometimes all it takes is one conversation. Thank you to my friends @akshaykumar & Sajid Nadiadwala for their warm gesture of moving the release date of their film Bachchan Pandey at my request. I wish them the very best for their film. Looking forward to it.— Aamir Khan (@aamir_khan) January 27, 2020
Bollywood biggies often opt to secure exclusive release dates so that it doesn't impact their box-office earnings.
