Bollywood’s action man aka Akshay Kumar is currently on a signing spree. Just recently, the superstar announced doing a film titled ‘Bachchan Pandey’ with Sajid Nadiadwala. Bachchan Pandey’s first look poster garnered a lot of curiosity because it was the very first time one saw the actor man in this avatar.
On the other hand, the newly announced film also created a buzz for its release date. ‘Bachchan Pandey’ will be clashing with Aamir Khan’s ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ on Christmas 2020.
The very question, is Akshay Kumar worried, after hearing this news? Well here’s what he had to say.
In a F2F with Mumbai Mirror, Akshay shared,
“We have 52 Fridays in a year and even fewer holiday weekends. We make over 200 Hindi films a year while Hollywood releases 40 more and then there’s the South industry and other regional cinema. So, we should be happy if we have two big releases in a week.”
“This year, on the Independence Day weekend we had three, (Mission Mangal, Batla House, and Saaho) till one bowed out.” Last year, his film ‘Gold’ locked horns with John Abraham’s ‘Satyamev Jayate’.
For Akshay Box-office clash is an unavoidable part of business, he said, “there is no element of surprise’ in multiple films clashing at the box office. “We should not blame anybody or blame each other and just go along with it.”
Coming To Aamir Khan’s ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’. It is an official remake of the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Forrest Gump’. Kareena Kapoor Khan will be Aamir Khan’s leading lady in the flick. There are whispers that the movie will feature the 1984 Anti-Sikh riots as an important plot point.
To summarise, Akshay Kumar is an action man in true sense, even when it comes to business. He is not afraid of competition. He has complete faith in his efforts and has a strong belief that one’s karma does deliver.
