Trade analyst Taran Adarsh: SRK and Akshay to clash at the box-office on Independence Day weekend
Republic Day 2017 saw a clash of the titans at the box-office with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’ and Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’ both releasing on the same day.
Now, there’s another set of great Bollywood films heading for a mighty clash on the Independence Day weekend.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared on Twitter, Akshay Kumar’s ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ will collide with Imtiaz Ali’s Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer at the box-office. The two films will hit cinemas on August 11, 2017.
Earlier, Akshay Kumar’s ‘Crack’ was scheduled for an Independence Day release and ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ was to bump off the screens on June 2, 2017.
Due to production delays, ‘Crack’ will not be putting out this year, and Shah Rukh’s film could have availed a solo outlet.
