Has Shah Rukh Khan averted a clash with Akshay Kumar?

Salman Khan has just released the first look of Shah Rukh Khan‘s next with Imtiaz Ali and we have to admit, we are bowled over by it. Shah Rukh Khan has never looked more hotter. And while we still don’t know what is the title of the film, we sure know what is the release date of the film and that is August 11, 2017. Which is an Independence Day 2017 release. The SRK starrer is scheduled to release on August 11 2017 and Akshay Kumar already has launched the first look poster of Crack which had Independence Day 2017 on it. The poster was launched by Akshay Kumar right after Rustom became a success. So the date can be either August 11, or August 15 and in either case there be Shah Rukh Khan against him and things will be completely different at the box office. Shah Rukh Khan’s first film next year is Raees which is going head to head against Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil. And now another film of his will be a part of clashes and this time with Akshay Kumar’s Crack.

Akshay Kumar really has to pull up his socks if he wants to go head to head with King Khan at the box office as Shah Rukh Khan is not known as “King of Box Office Clashes” for nothing. If one could recall about SRK’s various box office clashes, apart from one instance, the Fan actor has managed to crush Akshay’s films all the time. Also read: Salman Khan reveals the first look and release date of Shah Rukh Khan’s movie with Imtiaz Ali

 

Come August 11, 2017, you will see them go head to head again with their respective films. Shah Rukh Khan’s is a musical love story, the genre SRK masters in, on the other hand Akshay Kumar is returning with director Neeraj Pandey, a winning combination so far. Guess we have to wait for the official release date of Akshay Kumar’s Crack and we’ll know if the clash is really averted or we’ll witness another box office battle.
