Will Akshay Kumar overshadow Ajay Devgn at the box office?
Yogen Shah

Akki and Ajay are all set to clash at the box office with their films Holiday and Action Jackson respectively. These two superstars have come face-to-face at the BO three times but the question is – who will win this time around?

Akshay Kumar’s Holiday: A Soldier Is Never off Duty will release alongside Ajay Devgn’s Action Jackson on June 6 this year. What’s interesting is that both these films were supposed to hit the screens on May 1. But now Akshay and Ajay’s face-off will happen in June. Both Khiladi Kumar and Kajol’s hubby dearest have huge fan following and therefore it’s tough to predict who will walk away with the bigger money pie. Also, Action Jackson has been directed by Prabhu Dheva and Holiday is by AR Murugadoss. Since both the filmmakers are talented and have had a great run at the box office so far, it harder to say whose film will race ahead in the numbers game. Sonakshi Sinha, who plays the lead in both the films, is considered a lucky mascot. But will the lady luck shine on Akshay or will it favour Ajay?

Guess we’ll have to wait till both the films hit the theatres. What do you think Bollywoodlifers?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Recent masala movies:
    Jai ho – average
    Boss – flop
    Rajkumar – average
    Clearly action masala era is well over and action jackson is full on mindless masala movie, so ita an outright flop. As for Holiday, it is a slick, fast paced intelligent action thriller which is rare but popular among bollywood audiences..recent examples: Ek tha tiger and Dhoom3. Having said so, I think A.jackson will find it tough and will have to postpone

    • KAPIL CHOUDHARY

      YES BRI ACTION JACKTION POST PON

  • Ranjeet

    Only Ajay is the verstile actor of Bollywood …….About acting ajay devgn is far better than akshay…. depends of how prabhu present Ajay in Action Jackson ……Holiday trailor is out ! nothing new ….same akki have no expressions on face.

    • abiak

      Go get a life.Ajay devgn is versatile?He sucks in comedy,thrillers.Everyone knows Akki has played every role in his career.What about ajay devgn?
      About Holiday trailer,i think you are only a hater and frustrated.Action scenes are awesome and Akki has get into the character very well.On 6 June come here again

      • Ranjeet

        Good Joke ! ….Akki has played every role in his career…..

        i have to much to talk but …….Go and watch once upon times in mumbai 1st and 2nd you will get answer

        • Shravan

          Its not a joke buddy, Akki has played all kinds of roles in his career..action, comedy, romance, serious role, villain and all while Ajay can only do villain. serious role and action well…romance and comedy dont suit him and what can I say about Ajay’s dancing ability..we all know how comfortable he is when it comes to dancing :P

          • Ranjeet

            Dear …. for your kind information !
            1) Hum dil de chuke……pyar to hona hi tha…..dilwale ….diljale etc (Romantic)

            Already Ajay won fight with Akshay time of All the best Vs Blue & Golmaal3 Vs Action Reply……

            Ajay is best …..far better than Akshay …..diretcors had kept Akshay as supporting actor in Ajay’s movie Suhaag and Khakee

            I am not against Akshay but i have to reply you

          • Shravan

            Yes but 70% films u mention were not hit..dil to bacha, deewangee, kaal, bhagat singh, zakham, company, lajja, apharan, gangajal, satyagraha, diljale, ishq, vijaypath, all the best, atithi all were average at most..
            Akki’s hit:
            Romatic- Namastey london, andaaz
            Action- Rowdy, khiladiyon ka khiladi, sabse bada khiladi, khiladi, mohra and many more
            Comedy- too many hits..bhagam bhag, bhool bhulaiya, phir hera pheri, singh is king, housfull, housefull2, heyy baby, mujhse shaadi, garam masala to name a few
            Serious role- jaanwar, special 26
            negative- Ajnabee, OUATIMD
            Social movies- OMG
            Akki did supporting roles in suhaag and khakee because he has a big heart and agreed to give ajay a chance

          • Ranjeet

            what …. ! you man talking…… Ajay had got two national awards 10-12 years back ……hope in next 10 years he will got 2 more !

            Akshay good in comedy and his movies based on comedy only …..OMG Lead role was Paresh Rawal ….OUATIMD 2…. he was looking old man with his rough voice ………in Suhaag and Khakee Akshay was not director ……..to give chance Devgn is more capable for any role…………Akshay’s 70% movies are big flops ! .

          • Shravan

            Ok then let the clash happen if its that u Ajay fans are wishing for. But Holiday vs Singham would have been a big fight at the BO…Holiday vs A.Jackson is not

          • Ranjeet

            Dear ……..only fans will wish them for the best …but they can’t perfect judge how movie will does at BO which you are doing …….its almost depends on director, script , music, lyrics etc…but in case of Ajay will say on the basis of his acting skills Ajay will be better !

          • Shravan

            Akki was the host of khatron ke khiladi for 3 seasons and also hosted masterchef and he is attached to more than 20 brands..he is the fitness icon, even bjp wanted him to fight election for them in punjab. Thats what is called stardom

          • Ranjeet

            Go and watch How different is Singham and Rowdy Rathore ……after Singham Ajay Devgn is the official brand ambassador of Mumbai Police …….Akshay is money oriented so he hosting khatron ke khiladi and masterchef …… Ajay Devgn is acting oriented !….if akshay has stardom ??? then how …..Thank you .Joker ……Boss…….Khiladi 786……OUATIMD 2…..movies were flop !!

          • Shravan

            They were not good films and Akki was doing an overdose of masala films..even big star cant save an average/bad film e.g jai ho, besharam

          • Shravan

            Yes but singham: 98cr, Rowdy: 133cr by boxofficeindia. Both were good and both were remakes..so no point to argue.

        • Shravan

          you are talkinf about OUATIM and OUATIMD..then let me tell u that both acted well in thier respective roles..its just that part 1 had a much better story and dialogues than part 2

          • Ranjeet

            In OUATIM 1…… Ajays looks, body Langauge, dialogue delivery …expressions…… awesome and mind blowing !

          • Shravan

            Akshay too was good in OUATIMD..but the story and dialogue from rajat arora was a let down

          • Shravan

            Ajay was good but it was Emraan hashmi who infact got more appreciation for his role..he overshadowed ajay

    • Shravan

      Nothing new..u mean you have seen a movie about DIA and sleeper cells in bollywood?? Then u must be living in 2050 coz we have seen any movie with such story so far…and u mean action jackson has something new to offer and things such as OTT action, mindless comedy, no script, unnecessary masala content are new?? LOL.

  • FUCbollywoodLIFE

    Ajay always win Clashes! 3 times against Akshay! And this would be his 4 victory! Akshay’s Movie is just a remake! On the other side is Action Jackson a new script!

    • Shravan

      hey idiot..what new script, it will be the same masala shit we’ve been bombarded in recent times. Action jackson is flop for sure is clash happens. Akki acts in remakes only?? hahaha so what was singham, himmatwala, bol bachan lol? stfu. Ajay won 3 times…?? When? I can remember only golmaal3 vs action replay. Blue thrashed all the best if you remember.

    • HERRY

      both are remakes of south indian movies. this is calles COPYWOOD opps sorry BOLLYWOOD!!! BOLLYWOOD should be named COPYWOOD. COPPYWOOD in which there is no originality. either copy HOLLYWOOD MOVIES or either copy SOUTH movies. that’s the real face of BOLLYWOOD oops sorry COPPYWOOD.

  • nikhil kumar

    the question should be will ajay devgan overshadow akshay kumar

    • KAPIL CHOUDHARY

      AKSHAY BHATI THIS TIME AKSHAY SUPER

    • Guest

      hahahaha Ajay has just a few thousand fans in India and we all know how many fans he has overseas where none of his movies are hit..prabhudeva worked with Akki and gave a blockbuster but Ajay is not Akki, so prabhu will have another flop after rajkumar and ramayya vastavya..I did not wanted the clash as I like Ajay also but seeing this negativity about Akki from Ajay fans now I want this clash to happen so that Akki can shut your mouths once and for all

      • pyady

        akshy kumar ki movie chal ke bahut saal ho gaye ajay devgan to ajay devgan hain national awards actor hain ajay azction jackson hitt hogi akshay to ajay ke samne kuch bhi nahi akshay ko bolo ki kuch naya chahte hain lok same act same movie dekhke log pareshan ho gaye ..singham se panga oh ho jayega nanga…………..

        • Guest

          dont make me dislike Ajay devgn..he is actually my 2nd fav after Akshay kumar..but the negativity from all ajay fan is making me a hater..stop your nonsense..Ajay movies became hit due to support from Akkians and salmaniacs…Ajay fans ae very little in India u know it

        • Shravan

          dont make me dislike Ajay devgn..he is actually my 2nd fav after Akshay kumar..but the negativity from all ajay fan is making me a hater..stop your nonsense..Ajay movies became hit due to support from Akkians and salmaniacs…Ajay fans are very little in India u know it..shahid kapoor, ranveer singh and even john abraham have better fan following than Ajay

          • Ranjeet

            As per survey ………Ajay Devgn is the most verstile actor in Bollywood !

          • Shravan

            which survey? can u provide me the link?

          • Ranjeet

            Jhon & Shahid from 12-15 years learning….what is acting ……ranveer singh doing YRF films ……& in KG of acting class & Head masters of these class taking tution from Ajay Devgn……… then where is the question on fan following !

          • Shravan

            I’m not talking about acting..I’m saying john, ranveer, shahid are far more popular than Ajay regardless of acting..yes Ajay is better than them but behind them in fan following. If Akshay and salman fan stop supporting Ajay then even tushar and jacky bhagnani will have more fans than Ajay..and i know srk fan detest Ajay for what he has done during sos/jthj war

          • Ranjeet

            No Need any Certificate for Ajay Devgns Popularity !

            when ! …I had gone at cinema hall for watching satyagraha ….there was a man he also came for movie parking his car …..his little 3-4 years old kid seen the poster of satyagraha ….and said his dad ….dad this is Singham’s movie ….! This is the example How popular is Ajay Devgn in little hearts also which they can not express thems feeling on social websites etc

          • Shravan

            Holiday releasing solo on June 6

    • Shravan

      hahahaha Ajay has just a few thousand fans in India and we all know how many fans he has overseas where none of his movies are hit..prabhudeva worked with Akki and gave a blockbuster but Ajay is not Akki, so prabhu will have another flop after rajkumar and ramayya vastavya..I did not want the clash as I like Ajay also but seeing this negativity about Akki from Ajay fans now I want this clash to happen so that Akki can shut your mouths once and for all

  • Shravan

    Ajay win clashes..as far as I remember he was crying about clashing with JTHJ in deewali 2012 and even filed a case against yrf and lost that too. JTHJ did more than SOS..JTHJ 102cr, SOS 88cr,,,so Ajay lost this clash

    • Ranjeet

      Devgn not Akshay was crying ….at the time of Chennai Express vs OUATIMD2……….OUATIMD ……postporned ! …YRF and Ajay battle is old history ! ….but ……….Ajay faces like Loin !

      • Shravan

        Akki gifted srgay a solo release as srk had already booked all cinemas, he did not go to the court crying that srk has booked all single screens for publicity LOL.

        • Ranjeet

          Ajay had filed case against YRF because of in future no one should face problem like Ajay ……big banners should not pressurize distributors….Ajay had guts to fight like banner YRF. ….which don’t have in Akshay.

          • Shravan

            Ok buddy no need to fight now..Action Jackson not releasing on june 6..I don’t know why but its good for Ajay and A.jackson. Singham 2 will be blockbuster for sure but I hope A.jackson too succeed as its not clashing with Holiday. ATB

  • Shravan

    New things in Holiday:
    1.Akki in an action thriller
    2.Murugadoss & Akki collaborating for the 1st time
    3.Greg powell(action director of skyfall, fast&furious) is the action director
    4.Akki playing a DIA officer
    5.A film on sleeper cells(first in bollywood)

    New things to look forward in action jackson:
    1.Ajay devgn dancing and matching step with prabhudeva :P

    If a superstar like Salman Khan could not save an action masala movie Jai Ho which was a good movie IMO, what makes u think that people will watch ation jackson? No way…multiplex audience will reject it from day 1…action jackson has chances in single screens only but there too it will face tough fight with mass favorite Akshay kumar. Singham 2 may be a hit due to independence day release, and rohit shetty otherwise action masala is over now

  • BOSS

    Name : HOLiDAY – ASoldier is Never Off duty
    What a great name and Action jackson look like Desi name ..

    • Boss Kaa Boss

      Boss ! …..Apane ko to Paani se Matlab hai !………….what mind blowing dialogue………..Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha ……same will happen abt Holiday also
