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.
The change in the release date of Akshay's film has now slotted the two superstars against each other at the box-office.
Incidentally, last year's Independence Day weekend had also seen a big clash, between Akshay's 'Rustom' and Hrithik's 'Mohenjo Daro'.
