Well Bollywood stars have set a new trend to occupy their releasing dates during festive occasions and holidays. There would be a big tug of war between all the three Khans who have occupied festive occasions and holidays to release their much-talked upcoming films.

Yesterday, during the trailer launch of the most appreciated film Masaan, director Vikas Bahl gave his take on Khans blocking festive occasions for release dates.

Vikas Bahl who is producing Masaan under production house Phantom said, “It’s good that Khans are releasing films on festive periods. It’s ok if they are blocking festive dates. It’s good because it brings more money and helps small films.”
