Just a few days ago, Akshay Kumar announced his next film, Bachchan Pandey with Sajid Nadiadwala. With the announcement of Bachchan Pandey, the makers also shared the first look and release date of it. The film is slated to hit the theatres on Christmas 2020. Soon after the announcement was made, it was seen that the film is clashing with Aamir Khan’s Lal Singh Chaddha.
Interestingly, both the films are a remake. Aamir’s film is a remake of Hollywood film, Forrest Gump. Whereas Akshay’s film is the remake of Tamil film, Veeram.
Though, both the films are of different genre but it would be interesting to see the clash. In a recent conversation with Mumbai Mirror, he finally reacted about the clash. He said, “We have 52 Fridays in a year and even fewer holiday weekends. We make over 200 Hindi films a year while Hollywood releases 40 more and then there’s the South industry and other regional cinema. So, we should be happy if we have two big releases in a week. This year, on the Independence Day weekend we had three, (Mission Mangal, Batla House, and Saaho) till one bowed out.”
This is not the first time that Akshay’s film will be clashing at the box office. Last year too, his film Gold faced a clash with John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate. Even this year too, he will clash with his friend John. It will be really interesting to see what happens!
