Just when you thought 2017 has one of the biggest clashes at the box office in store for the audience, it got bigger. The latest addition to the list is Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar and Rajinikanth’s mega film 2.0. Aamir’s next production, which was earlier supposed to release in August, has now been shifted to Diwali this year. Which means it is going to have a face-off with 2.0, which will release on the same day. Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and wrote, “Aamir Khan Productions’ #SecretSuperstar will now release in Diwali 2017. Zee Studios presents. Directed by Advait Chandan.” The film has been directed by Aamir’s close friend and stars Zaira Wasim, who won the National Award for Best Supporting Actor for Dangal.
According to Bollywood Hungama, Taran Adarsh revealed that Aamir wanted to avert the clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s untitled film directed by Imtiaz Ali in August. Hence, he spoke to Rajinikanth and the two stars mutually decided to have Secret Superstar and 2.0 releasing on the same day.
The new release date of Secret Superstar has left everyone excited and shocked at the same time. Now that both the movies are scheduled for Diwali, we are sure there’s going to be a lot of firework at the box-office this year.

Secret Superstar is a story about a girl with a passion for singing. She wants to be heard all across the globe but the problem is her daddy dearest who cruelly rips apart her guitar as she watches. She realises her dream by wearing a hijab and secretly uploading her songs on YouTube. Aamir plays her mentor and a rockstar in the film, who will yet again surprise the audience with his transformation by getting into the skin of his character.
The music of the film will be scored by Amit Trivedi, who said, “Secret Superstar is one of the most amazing projects I have worked on. Working with Aamir Khan was a dream and it came true. He is the most amazing person to work with.”
The film was earlier supposed to release on August 4 but now it will release on Diwali weekend.
