      Really can't figure out what is the mantra behind Aamir Khan's released films on Christmas. Each of his film released on Christmas typically is always an all time blockbuster. The more you try to ignore it, the more it becomes a reality. 2008: Ghajini 225 crores, 2009: 3 s 395 crores, 2013: Dhoom 3 585 crores, 2014: PK 792 crores and now Dangal heding towards breaking the same. Sometimes I think Aamir has a divine connection with Christmas. May you keep breaking records all the time. God bless.
