After the much talked about Raees-Kaabil clash at the box office, it looks like there is yet again a reason for Shahrukh Khan to be worried and this time, it's Akshay Kumar to be blamed!
The superstar's films just don't seem to be getting a solo
release at the ticket windows and it has happened once again.
Here's the latest update-
Release Date Of Akshay Kumar's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Pushed Ahead To August
Yes, you heard it right! The release date of Akshay Kumar- Bhumi
Pednekar's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been pushed ahead to 12th
August, 2017- the same day when Imtiaz Ali's next starring Shahrukh
Khan and Anushka Sharma.
A Consecutive Box Office Clash With A Star For Shahrukh Khan
Shahrukh Khan's last film Raees had locked horns with Hrithik
Roshan's romantic thriller at the box office in January and the
result was a divided business at the ticket windows. Prior to that,
SRK's Dilwale had clashed with Ranveer-Deepika-Priyanka starrer
Bajirao Mastani; out of which the latter emerged a big winner both
in terms of accolades and economics.
Akshay Kumar's Golden Run At The Box Office
Akshay Kumar and Shahrukh Khan are big names in Bollywood and
has always been crowdpullers when it comes to films. But lately,
it's Akshay out of the two who is having the last laugh when it
comes to box office numbers. He has been delivering hits and hits.
On the other hand, Shahrukh Khan's last two films Raees and Dilwale
didn't exactly translate into huge box office figures.
Both The Films Belong To Different Genre
Akshay's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a satirical take on on Prime
Minister Narendra Modi's project Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. The project
aims at cleaning the streets and roads and the film will portray
the loopholes of how it has been taken. Meanwhile, reports
suggest that Imtiaz's film traces the life of Anushka's character,
who plays a free spirited tourist who falls in love with her guide
(Shahrukh Khan) while travelling with him across Europe, looking
for her lost engagement ring.
