Ajay and Akki have often clashed at the box office and it seems they are ready to battle it out once again their upcoming films Action Jackson and Pistol respectively
Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar have come face-to-face at the box office three times. In 2009, Devgn’s All the Best released alongside Khiladi Kumar’s Blue and the former one raced ahead in the number game. In the following year, the two superstars clashed again twice. First Ajay starrer Golmaal 3 clashed with Akshay’s Action Replayy in November and then in December Toonpur Ka Superhero and Tees Maar Khan released on the same date. While Ajay won the November battle, December turned out to be unlucky for both as their films failed to get cash registers ringing. So going by their past track record, the Singham actor has clearly beaten Akshay but we aren’t sure if his success streak will continue in 2014.
Ajay Devgn’s Action Jackson was supposed to release in April with Amitabh Bachchan’s Bhootnath Returns. However, we hear, the Prabhu Dheva film will now hit the screens on May 1, 2014 the same day as Thuppakki remake starring Akshay releases. Though Ajay has outdone the Khiladi of Bollywood twice, technically whenever two titans have clashed at BO, the result has always been good. “There have been enough heavy duty clashes at the BO in the past and the results have been phenomenal for the industry. Aamir Khan’s Lagaan and Sunny Deol’s Gadar released on the same day and we’re blockbusters, Aamir’s Taare Zameen Par came with Akshay’s Welcome and both did really well. Ajay’s Son Of Sardaar clashed with Shahrukh Khan’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan and again both sailed through” points out exhibitor-distributor Akshaye Rathi.
While we hope this time both the actors enjoy success at the box office, Bollywoodlifers, you tell us which film will be a hit – Action Jackson or the remake of Thuppakki?
