The news of yet another clash of two Superstars (Shahrukh Khan & Akshay Kumar) at the box-office, has spread in the media like wild fire! And now, we have come across a surprising revelation made by a source about their alleged cold war that began back in the year of 2011!
Yes, you read it right! While, their film clash might turn out to be a healthy competition, the reason which created differences between these two Superstars is more personal than professional!
SRK Gave Cold Shoulder To Akshay
Talking about the SRK-Akshay' cold war, a source reveals to Deccan Chronicle, "In 2011, when Hema Malini threw a party, she invited SRK and Akshay. SRK had given a cold shoulder to Akshay at the party. The two have never gotten along. But they have resolved their issues and have decided to release their films on the same day."
No Hard Feelings For Each Other
On a related note, as both Akshay & SRK had already buried the hatchet, even their films will be clashing on August 11, they've got no hard feelings for each other. You must be wondering how? We will tell you!
Both Will Get Equal Number Of Screens
Reportedly, both stars will end up getting equal number of screens owing to their stardom! Distributor Rajesh Thadani quoted as saying, "Both are big films so they will compete to get equal numbers of screens."
We Gotta Wait & Watch
"They do have equal opening as of now, but it all depends on the hype that the films create closer to the release dates. After all, exhibitors want profit more than anything else and things could change closer to the big day."
When Akshay Had Talked About The 'Khans'
The upcoming clash between Akshay & SRK do remind us of Akshay's statement, where he had clearly said that there's healthy competition between him and the Khans.
He had said, "I keep track of their films and philanthropic activities only out of respect for them, and to know what they are doing in life. I don't follow their moves so that I can beat them to it or anything as desperate as that."
Akshay Doesn't Give A Damn About Their Business
"What they do is their business, and I support them. I never look at their successes and go, "Damn! That should have been me." I look at them and think, "Come on Akshay, if you want to stay in this industry, you better show your fans that you are worth it."
Akshay Admits Of Having Healthy Jealousy
"Healthy jealousy is the best jealousy. I look at them, and think, "Wow, what a shot, what a film or what a kind gesture." My fellow brothers are amazing human beings, and can be looked up to in so many ways. They are no angels by a long shot, but they're pretty close."
