It was in November 2012, when Bollywood witnessed the ugly spat that took place between Ajay Devgn Ffilms and Yash Raj Films during the release of their films – Son Of Sardaar and Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Who can forget that conflict? A legal war between both the production houses, where YRF was blamed for apparently forcing the exhibitors and blocking the screens in advance when they had sold Ek Tha Tiger. At the end, ADF lost the case; Both the movies made more than Rs 100 crores business at the Box Office.


Now, it seems there might be a recurrence of the similar scenario during the release of  upcoming 2 big ticket movies – Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express and Milan Luthria’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2.

Well, there is no legal case filed here yet, however, our little birdie chirped that UTV, who is releasing Himmatwala starring Ajay Devgn this month, is apparently trying to book single screen for its next release – Chennai Express, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.

Balaji Motion Pictures’ Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2, starring Akshay Kumar, which is apparently scheduled to release on the same date, might have to face the screen crunch issues at the Box Office. However, nothing has been confirmed yet and neither parties have spoken about this. All we can do is to wait and watch when the official release dates of the films are announced!

But, if at all this happens, a very interesting connection we would like to bring up to your notice is that: It was indirectly SRK and Ajay Devgn as the leading faces who fought the earlier battle. While, now, in this current scenario it is Ajay’sHimmatwala and SRK’s Chennai Express, whose films belong to the same production house i.e. UTV. And this time the opponent is Balaji’s OUTIM2 starring Akshay.

What is more interesting here is that Akshay Kumar starred in UTV’s Rowdy Rathore, which garnered more than Rs 100 crore in UTV’s kitty.

    • SRK didnt win last time!!!Both movies did over 100 cr and SOS did it with less screens. Also the fight was between Ajay and YC not SRK.

  1. SRK is not only a superstar in Bollywood..all dis years he n his loyalists have blocked other actors credits..but after RBDJ his shine has faded, actors like aamir salman ajay akshay has dethroned him..so the makers of OUATIM2 does’nt need to change the release date..dey hve announced the date long back why SRK is sneeking in now let him came after 1 week..his JTHJ cudnt do any harm to SOS

  2. Shah Rukh losted his popularity and both movies gonna be hit …those who want comedy will go for CE and want action will go for OUATIM2.

  3. srk bollywood ka raja h uski jagah saman ya koi nhi le sakta ra1 aur don 2 hit h chek karo,salmaan ne 48 flop di h aur srk ne 12 continue hit,salman ko sirf tapori pasand karte h
