I don't think Bachchan Pandey will be made.
The director is supposed to direct KEKD with Sallu less than 6 months after BP. It's not going to happen.
But KJo ne faisla kar liya hai ke kisi Khan ko Xmas pe open weeks nahi mileinge.
Faraq ye hai ke Shashank is no Rohit, Varun is no Akshay, and Aamir is no SRK/Salman (in a good way). We will see a situation where both movies will probably be hits but the Xmas movie won't crash like last 2 years.
