Even though there’s a difference of 800 points between both the actors, Akshay Kumar has high chances to cover it up very soon. As promised by the makers, Sooryavanshi will arrive as soon as the theatres are reopened. In fact, it would be the first one from Bollywood to release after COVID- 19 episode.
Considering the buzz, Sooryavanshi is expected to cross 200 crore mark like a cakewalk. It also has high chances to become Akshay’s first 300 crore grosser. On the other hand, the Khiladi actor has kick-started the work on Bell Bottom too. And it would be no surprise if the actor comes with at least 3-4 releases in a short period of time during which Salman Khan releases Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai and Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.
As Akshay Kumar is known to complete films in a real quick time, he has an upper hand and every single chance of covering the distance of 800 points in the table. Except for Prithviraj, Akki is expected to complete projects like Atrangi Re, Raksha Bandhan, Bell Bottom and Bachhan Pandey, at a brisk pace. Speaking of Salman Khan, the actor has confirmed projects like Radhe, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and Guns Of North (official confirmation awaited), as of now.
