As if their recent cold war was not enough to keep them in the news here emerges another matter of concern that will see the Khiladi star and the TV queen at loggerheads
One of the major reasons that Ekta Kapoor cited when her ambitious production Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara tanked at the box office was the unavailability of Akshay Kumar to promote the film. And since then the two are not exactly on good terms with each other. And now Akshay Kumar and Ekta Kapoor will wage a war of sort at the box office too! The TV queen might just find herself in a box-office tussle with Akshay next August. The buzz is that the two are planning to release their respective film on the same day (August 15) next year.
A bitchy birdie informs us that Akshay Kumar has already announced the arrival of Gabbar on August 15 next year. On the other hand Ajay Devgn too has sounded off all involved that Singham 2 would arrive on the same date. Now Balaji is also eyeing the same date to release Badtameez Dil starring Emraan Hashmi and Kareena Kapoor. The film is being co-produced by Dharma Productions. Interestingly, Singham 2, directed by Rohit Shetty, is also releasing on the same day.
Now you tell us who do you think will win this battle at the BO?
