As the titans clash this holiday season, we wonder who the audiences will give their thumbs up to…and you?
Last year, Shahrukh Khan’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan had to fight Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardaar at the box office on the Diwali weekend. A few years earlier too, a big fight had ensued between SRK’s Om Shanti Om and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya on the same holiday weekend. And SRK managed to win both the battles at the BO.
This time though the fight has shifted to the Eid release date and SRK will have a face off with Akshay Kumar – it will be Shahrukh-Deepika Padukone’s romantic comedy Chennai Express versus the Akshay Kumar-Imran Khan-Sonakshi Sinha starrer Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again. While SRK’s movie is a masala love story, Akshay’s is a sequel and an action drama.
Interestingly, director Rohit Shetty has clashed with Akshay Kumar twice before and has come out trumps on both occasions – Golmaal versus Action Replayy (turned to be a dampener) and All The Best versus Blue (which tanked).
While Shahrukh and Rohit have a clear statistical advantage over Akshay at the moment, we wonder who the audience will give their thumbs up to this time around. Tell us, BollywoodLifers, which movie will you watch?
