Last year we saw the good friends’ duo Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan pitted against each other. Since Republic day serves to be the first national holiday so the Biggies of Bollywood time and again grab the opportunity to come out with films around the national holiday.
2017 began with one of the biggest box office clashes, Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees gave each other a tough run for the money at the box office. However, both films found themselves in a win-win situation.
This Republic Day would witness the clash between the hit director-actor duo Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar. The date 26th January has been a fascinating day for Bollywood. Interestingly we will be witnessing the biggest clashes of the year with the two major films Aiyaary and Padman battling against each other.
Neeraj Pandey is known to make movies like A Wednesday, Special 26, Naam Shabana, Baby, M.S Dhoni, and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Interestingly the subject of all these films revolves around topics serving the national interests.
Neeraj and Akshay have worked together on hit films previously which have achieved a cult status. But this time, Akshay and Neeraj will be at loggerheads at the box office and we can’t wait to see who wins the audience.
Akshay and Neeraj have worked together on so many projects and it won’t be wrong to ask have the friends turned foe?
While on one end prolific filmmaker Neeraj Pandey would present his crime drama ‘Aiyaary‘ on the other hand, national award-winning actor, Akshay Kumar presents his comedy-drama ‘Padman‘ this Republic Day.
Padman’s trailer is out and is quite impressive, the audience has liked the trailer, but at the same Time, Aiyaary’s first look was loved by the audience.
Aiyaary revolves around two strong-minded army officers sharing a mentor-protege bond who have completely different views, yet right in their own ways.
Padman presents the story based on Arunachalam Muruganantham who revolutionized the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkins machine.
