Akshay Kumar‘s Toilet Ek Prem Katha is going to clash with Shah Rukh Khan‘s untitled movie on Independence Day. This is going to be the biggest Bollywood clash.
Akshay Kumar talked to a leading daily about the clash he said:
My film is coming on August 11 because it’s a big date and an opportune time. Besides, Independence Day, there is another holiday in the same week. Such long weekends can easily take two big releases. Ghayal and Dil clashed, as did Gadar: Ek Prem Katha and Lagaan.
Although he is not denying about the loss, as he stated:
At least both of us are still assured of eating pie.
Box-office clashes are professional hazards and ideally they should not have any personal implications. In a situation where we have 200 movies to be accommodated in 52 weeks, clashes have become unavoidable. I’m aware that (we don’t live in an ideal world). But I’m not willing to draw blood or go to war over a movie.
