With Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar‘s films set to release simultaneously on Diwali this year, it’s the clash of the titans… and just a matter of time to see who will blink first.

Come Diwali, and if everything goes as per schedule, three big movies will lock horns at the box-office: Shah Rukh Khan’s untitled Yash Chopra film, Ajay Devgan’s Son Of Sardar and Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi 786.

While Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgan have already tasted blood with two of their previous films making Rs. 100 crore, there’s no doubt that both of the heroes want to repeat the feat this Diwali. And as for Akshay Kumar, the Khiladi is still waiting to enter that exclusive club.

Releasing big banner movies simultaneously at the box-office hasn’t done much good. In 2009, the Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan starrer All The Best clashed with Akshay Kumar and Sanjay Dutt’s Blue at the windows. No marks for guessing which of them sunk without a trace.

Similarly, two bigwigs clashed at the windows when Sanjay Leela Bhansali released his Saawariya alongside Farah Khan’s Om Shanti Om in September 2007. While the newcomers Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor were left to fend for themselves in the blue background, it was the Deepika Padukone and Shah RukhKhan starrer which laughed all the way to the bank.

But it looks like production houses have learnt a lesson after sparks flying at the windows, and most films now categorically look for safe dates to release their films rather than eat into each others’ profits. It is almost an unsaid rule that big banner films will not release together with so much competition and the problem of accommodating them in screens.

Of the films set to fight it out at the box-office this Diwali – Yash Chopra’s untitled film, Son Of Sardar and Khiladi 786 – at least one of these films will have to shift to an earlier or later date.

The important question is: Who will blink first?

  1. I Think Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardar will be a huge hit at the box-office…..saw the first look of sos ajay siting on a horsh.just one word for it BLOCKBUSTER.

  2. akii will rock housefull is a hit, rowdy rathore will be a superhit and khiladi 786 will rock the diwali

    khiladi rules…

    aaahhhhheyyyy……

  3. I think SRKs movie will have a great opening compared to Ajay and Akshay but the final winner will be Ajay because SOS sounds very interesting.

  4. SRK king ke aage sab fail he…. koi bhi aajao
    SRK ne same release pe AMIT G ko hraya hua hai to baki kya cheez hai…
    SRK WILL ROCK THE BOX OFFICE

    • I also agree with akash. If Akki is not working with Vipul Shah’s next flim ‘London Dreams’, so it does not mean that there is any perolbm in their relationship.

    • Thats how you enter bollywood these days show a bit of b just like kiantra. Shes soo overated n looks like everyones forgotton her debut film boom

  5. shah rukh ko to media ka support kyun ki shah rukh ke bina to media ka ghar nai chalta lakin is bar aisa nahin media jitna chahya utna support kar le lakin in sabka baap hoga son of sardar

  6. After comparing shahrukh ,ajay and akshay the results comes is :-SRK-know only for auratowali role,lekin ab aurdians masala movie like kar rahi hai aur srk maccho hero nahi hi.
    AKKI- aeto khiladi kumar jane jate hi ,lekin ab trend k hisab se akshay ki personality maccho man nahi rahi.
    AJAY -he is versitile actor ,aur ab unhe lion king se jana jata hai ,o apne to puri lagan se karte hai aur unhe limited promote karte hai ,srk aur akki ki tarah dikhawa nahi karte.
    RESULTS;-and my favour goes to none other than ajay devgan ,and i am sure ki ajay ki film srk aur akki se better business karege ,ajay sir ko hamare taraf se all the best.

  7. AJAY DEVGN IS THE LION OF BOLLY WOOD….HOW CAN SHARUKH KANGARO CAN BEAT THE LION OF BOLLYWOOD……………….IF U THINK ABOUT AKSHYA KUMAR KHILADI 786….THEN PLZ FORGET…AJAY ALWAYS BEAT AKSHYA…LIKE…..AJAY ALL THE BEST VS AKSHYA BLUE….ALL THE BEST IS HIT…AGAIN…AJAY GOOLMAAL 3 VS AKSHYA ACTION REPLAY…AGAIN GOOLMAAL 3 IS HIT…..SO PLZ SHAKE HAND WITH ME AND WATCH SON OF SARDAR………………..JIYO AJAY.

  8. Ajay is the best Actor, sahrukh or Akshay ko samajh lena chahiye ki Ajay devgan ko Diwali Bahut luky hai. isliye son of sardar super duper hit honi hai.

  9. I Think Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardar.
    Son of sardar is blouckbuster because starring by ajay devgan.
    i love you ajay devgan

  10. Me pyar karta hu ajay devgan ko full kante or dilwale,diljale movies se he is realiy a super star maine kabhi unki movies me over acting nahì dekhi ve jo bhi karte he dil se karte he is diwali son of sardar hit akki or shahrukh is sal ke liye sorry love you ajay yadi jindgi me kam karne ka moka mile to ajay sir is my first choice

  11. i think Shahrukh will rock on this Diwali….
    If u carefully look down that 3 movies , than you will definitely come to the point that , Shahukh is playing another romantic character. and world knows. He is the king of Romance….
    While Ajay looks little Off color in pure Sardar’s look.
    so i think SOS did not give tough time to SRK.. but Akshay definately do, but in a very small manner…because after all, Akshay is also a king of Commedy, but Their 2 previous releases based on funny scripts =- masala actions…. so i think so. Khiladi 786 will not compete SRK..we see the example in akshay movie,, Mr & Mrs Khalidi, which is commidian.. khalidi title can not Hit with coomdy flavor…

  12. jab yaha sardar hi hai razi to kya karega koi miya ya kazi……………….. es bar to lutiya dubi srk ki

  13. SRKs film will be blockbuster in india and overseas too as usual. sab log hawa ke sath ja rahe he akshay ajay ki hit ho gayi to unke gungan, SRK ki to 20 sal se har diwali blockbuster he..

  14. Akki- the khiladi kumar, ek bar fir se dekayega jalwa on diwali with khiladi 786, ye bhi rr& housefull2 ki trah 100 par jayge, only hero to acheive that!!!
