As we saw a big clash between Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’ and Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’ this year on republic day. Now there is a big clash between two big Bollywood films on Independence day weekend. According to an update shared by film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar’s ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ will clash with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer untitled film directed by Imtiaz Ali at the box office. Both these movie will be expecting to hit cinemas on August 11, 2017.
Akshay Kumar was the first to announce the release date for his film ‘Crack’ to be directed by Neeraj Pandey on Independence day 2017 but due to production delays ‘Crack’ will not be releasing this year. But later When Shah Rukh announced the same date for the Imtiaz Ali’s directed movie; it was again termed as a clash between the two superstars on box office.
It, was only when Akshay Kumar who announced his four films of the year, ‘Jolly LLB 2’, ‘2.0’, ‘Toilet- Ek Prem Katha’ and ‘Padman’ did it become evident that ‘Crack’ won’t be releasing this year. However, when we thought that the SRK starrer would get a solo release, now ‘Toilet- Ek Prem Katha’, which was earlier planned to release in June, but now has been pushed ahead and will now release on 11 August.
Incidentally on last year’s Independence, we had seen a big clash, between Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Rustom’ and Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Mohenjo Daro’ but this time it would now be interesting for all of us to see how this king khan and Akshay clash because it would be different from another clashes that happened this year earlier.
One more interesting thing is that the release date of SRK film was announced by Salman Khan a few days ago, and also Akshay’s comedy is expected to release on the same day. It’s a big wonder that now who will make the first movie to avoid the big clash or would both are allowed to release on same date.
