Akshay Kumar speaks a bit about his clash with SRK this time
As we all are aware about Akshay Kumar getting the National Award For Best Actor, the star has always maintained a different image of himself and his movies are vibrant in concepts.
This year he has a set of films from, ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha, to ‘2.0’ starring Rajinikanth and fans are getting crazy over him. Since we all know he is clashing with SRK this time, the situation is intense. It is all about seeing whose movie grabs the largest audience.
Now in a conversation with reporters, Akshay Kumar spoke about the clash and gave a very subtle reply to tis, without any ignorance he says, ‘My film is coming on August 11because it’s a big date and an opportune time. Besides, Independence Day, there is another holiday in the same week. Such long weekends can easily take two big releases. Ghayal and Dil clashed, as did Gadar: Ek Prem Katha and Lagaan”
He had more to say on this and he did, “Yes, Chennai Express came on August 8 followed by Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara! a week later. The clash was averted by the producers, Ekta Kapoor and SRK. There is a growing tendency amongst superstars to own Republic Day, Independence Day, Eid, Diwali and Christmas weekends. I released Airlift on Republic Day last year and Rustom on Independence Day. Both films were successful but I still do not think I own these dates. As I said earlier, these are good weekends to cash in, but they most certainly do not belong to me or any other actor.”
Now we very well know that the actor has left it upon fate. He is not concerned about who will win this time, all he wants to do is sit back and watch the show. He has no evil to Shah Rukh Khan for the clash and believes it’s a common thing.
For which he explained further, ‘Box-office clashes are professional hazards and ideally, they should not have any personal implications. In a situation where we have 200 movies to be accommodated in 52 weeks, clashes have become unavoidable.”
Akshay Kumar is purely a super star and we like the way he keeps it honest and professionalism in its boundaries.
