Aamir now ruffles Baweja’s feathers
MUMBAI: Aamir Khan’s decision to release his nephew’s debut Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na on July 4 has baffled Harry Baweja, who fixed the same date long back to open his son Harman’s launch pad Love Story 2050.
“The Bawejas were shocked,” said a source. “They had planned and strategised their film’s release almost six months in advance. They had spoken to all their potential competitors from Salman Khan to Ram Gopal Varma to Apoorva Lakhia and Aziz Mirza to Yash Raj and Tips.
“Harman called them up personally to make sure his film comes on a free Friday. Then suddenly Aamir showed up to create an almost Saawariya-Om Shanti Om crisis. The Jaane Tu release was nowhere in sight when Love Story 2050 was announced. Suddenly, they came out of the blue,” the source said.
However, Harman smiles off competition, saying, “Healthy competition is always welcome. I’d rather focus on my work. We’ve just started the promotion of our first song. It’s one of the costliest songs ever filmed.”
