Both Akshay Kumar and Shahrukh Khan are leaving no stone unturned to promote their respective films. Akshay Kumar's Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai is releasing one week after Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express. SRK recently promoted his movie in Dubai and now following Shahrukh's footsteps even Akshay will promote his movie in Dubai.
Akshay Kumar and Shahrukh Khan's war started when the filmmakers decided to release their movies on the same date. Later, Ekta Kapoor changed her decision and postponed the release of OUATIMD. Now, Shahrukh's Chennai Express is releasing on Eid and Akshay's movie will release on 15 August.
Talking about Akshay Kumar's Dubai plan, a source told Bollywood Life, "Ekta Kapoor wants to leave no stone unturned to make sure her movie is marketed and publicised well not only in India, but overseas too."
"It looks like she feels her movie hasn't been able to generate the level of buzz the King Khan romcom has managed. Considering that, she might have insisted that her movie's lead actor fly to Dubai and promote the film," the source further added.
Not only this, Shahrukh Khan and Ekta Kapoor arranged their Iftar party on the same day to promote their films.
