And the clashes are not stopping anytime soon in Bollywood. Just recently, Akshay Kumar announced the release of his next film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha on 11th August which will take on Shah Rukh Khan’s yet untitled film and now, there is another clash happening in Diwali.
Superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer mega movie 2.0 is releasing in Diwali 2017. It is one of the biggest and most anticipated movies of this year and is expected to break many box office records.
While, Aamir Khan is not a lead in the film and it’s a story of an aspiring singer played by Zaira Wasim, it is still going to make big buzz due to Aamir’s presence; so this clash, even if it is mild, will make an impact at box office in Diwali.
In terms of buzz and scope, obviously Secret Superstar is small film compared to 2.0 but Diwali festival can benefit both the films. In fact, release date of 4th August only gives a week for the film to earn after which the big films take over so Secret Superstar won’t have room to make a mark even it gets a thumbs up from the audience. In that way, Diwali release is a wise decision by the makers.
Now, the whole industry will curious to see how this clash between Akshay Kumar’s 2.0 and Aamir Khan’s ‘Secret Superstar’ will turn out. Keep following this space for more developments on this front.
