In the last few years, we have seen John Abraham booking the Independence Day weekend slot for his films and it has worked quite well for him. After Satyameva Jayate (2018) and Batla House (2019), the Pagalpanti actor has now reserved the Independence Day weekend in 2020 for his upcoming action-thriller, revealing the news during an interview with Mumbai Mirror: "It’s Attack (his next film), which rolls on January 4 and opens on August 14. I’ve come to believe that the day belongs to me, not just because it’s a national holiday but also for the feeling it brings forth. Attack is an apt Independence Day release, patriotic without being jingoistic. It will be directed by Lakshya Anand, who assisted Kabir Khan on New York and Ek Tha Tiger, and Siddharth Anand on Bang Bang."
While John Abraham's fans might be more than excited to again watch him in an action avatar on the silver screen with Attack, the film will face a huge obstacle from Ajay Devgn and Sanjay Dutt's Bhuj: The Pride Of India, which is hitting silver screens on the same date (August 14, 2020). Bhuj is based on a true event during the 1971 Indo-Pak war. Ajay Devgn essays the role of Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik, who was in-charge of the Bhuj Airport during the 1971 Indo-Pak war. On the other hand, Sanjay Dutt plays the character of Ranchordas Svabhai Ravari, who helped the army during the war. It is directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya and also features Sonakshi Sinha and Rana Daggubati in key roles.
