Mumbai, June 6 -- Christmas is the time for the big boys of Bollywood to play. Look at the last seven years' releases and you'll see what we mean. The two big Khans - Aamir and Shah Rukh - have dominated that slot, with the only other big name being Akshay Kumar. Aamir is apparently so fond of that season that one knew Dhoom:3 would release during Christmas even before the official announcement.
But now, the bigwigs have a challenger. And who better than next-gen Bollywood's biggest star - Ranbir Kapoor - to join the Christmas party? Having already proven his mettle at the box office with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD beat Salman's latest release, Dabangg 2, with its opening-weekend collections), his upcoming project, Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet (BV), will release during Christmas 2014.
