Akshay Kumar vs Aamir Khan on Diwali 2017

31

Box office clashes are becoming a norm in Bollywood. Few days back Akshay Kumar postponed his upcoming film Toilet Ek Prem Katha to 11 August which resulted in a big clash with SRK-Anushka’s untitled film.

Now Akshay Kumar has to taste his own medicine. Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar has now been postponed to Diwali 2017. It will now clash with Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth’s Robot 2.0.

Secret Superstar is a small film and will not pose much of a threat to magnum opus to 2.0. In fact, it might face troubles to get screens, especially in South. The initial will also be lower as compared to Akshay starrer.

Robot 2 is a South Indian film but Akshay Kumar’s presence will boost the collection in North where he has his core fan following. Thus Robot 2 will open better in Hindi belt. Aamir Khan’s Taare Zameen Par clashed with Akshay Kumar’s Welcome in 2007. Both films did good business and lifetime collection was almost in the same range despite Welcome taking a much higher opening. So Secret Superstar can obviously succeed.

Is this a calculated move by Aamir Khan? Well it looks like as Secret Superstar was a content driven film and August had too many biggies.

  1. Secret flopstar will be a huge flop
    Just one word to aamir
    Remember clash BTW welcome and taare dustbin mai
    North will be rule by akki and south with be rule by rajni Anna
    So secret flop star will get screen only in Andaman and nicobar islands

    • yeah sab log bahut khush hote hai jab SRK ki films clash main atee hai—
      Now Srk has no effect with clashes –bcoz he already faced many–
      but other stars like akshay- amir- salman- will face clashes in future —
      result sab ke samne ayegaaa-
      Akshay apne aap ko oversmart samaj raha tha–
      Secret superstar and rehnuma both ke collections effect hote — TEPK se by releasing on 11/08/17.
      Ab uski apne hi film effect ho gayee –
      both films now face heavy clash —
      TEPK to flop ho jayegee
      2.0 bhi blockbuster nehi ho payegee — due to clash and very high bughet

      • akshay already decided to release his crack movie on independance day before srk announcement but due to delay of the script, crack movie shifted to another date,now akki movie releasing on this independence day toh problem kyu ho rhi h

    • No Khan can stop Robo 2 storm, any movie clashes with Akki starrer will bite the dust even If Baahubali 2 clashes with Megastar Akki Starrer Robo 2.0 it will washout.
      Akki era rules..

    • National Award Winner Akki Robot 2.0 will show the world cinema what Indian movies are capable of. Leave about Indian movies it will beat Hollywood biggies.

    • Shame on you!!! You people are abusing film like “Tare Zamen Par” just for your dirty fan war.

      Get well soon!!

  2. Everyone exited for Robot 2.0.
    All those who will watch Robot 2.0 press like
    And all those who will watch secret superstar press unlike.

  3. Clash nhi karna chaiye..wo bhii rajnikant ki movie se..isse badiya solo release karo..jyda collection karta ss..!!!!

  4. might turn out to be a master stroke………remember a major festival like Diwali has potential of delivering a 300 cr plus film…..
    Robot 2 is a sci fi thriller…………if content is expected, potential should be around 150 cr – 200 cr at best…
    Secret Superstar is a family film with very low budget……..clashing with a major film on Diwali will give major eyeballs and publicity to the film ……….Also brand Aamir will ensure enough screens for the a low budgeted film……..
    Secret Superstar is a WOM film like Taare Zameen Par……..By releasing it on 04/08 , it would have faced serious competition in week 2 from 2 major films……….Diwali release will allow it to grow as WOM spreads due to holidays and and usually Diwali releases have atleast two open weeks….

  5. Akki fans talking about welcome vs TZP, a mass entertainer vs a content driven movie. Guess what the collection of TZP was more than any Akshay starrer barring welcome till 2007. We don’t even talk about Aamir in commercial films. Akshay to dur-2 tak nahi h competition me.

  6. People are blowing this out of proportion 2.0 will struggle to hit 50cr in hindi belt and that’s only thanks to akshay I think if I’m not mistaken the 1st robot struggled to hit 25cr nett in hindi plus zee is backing secret superstar and pvr cinemas have a good relationship with aamir Khan productions plus they have never delivered a flop all trade analysts worth they salt have put hindi version of 2.0 as doing 50-70cr nett lifetime that’s mainly down to akshay kumar and tv ratings so don’t write of secret superstar just yet as this is the best case scenario for a clash.

  7. Obviously in north it will collect only bcoz of akki’s starpower n in south all the records wud be decimated by a big distance.
    @befikre: as per the writer of 2.0 akki’s role is as powerful as rajni’s.don’t bark as if u have seen the movie.let the movie gets released then we can debate whether its rajni’s movie or akki’s movie..

  8. Now it is interesting a magnum opus vs a small film but never rule out Admit he is the one actor who is sure to deliver quality movies.

  9. Esa lag rha h Rajnikant Robot 2.0 me side role kr rha h aur AK lead…
    abe chapadganju log It’s Rajnikant Movie not AK movie
    Tmlog ko lagta h AK pr koi 100cr v budget laga sakta h jo 250+cr k budget k movie de dega use

    and also it’s not Bollywood movie

  10. it’s not going to be much of an effect hardly 20 25 crores but still robot 2 will do 180 crores minimum mark my words by the way ss will also get benefitted

  11. Respect for Askhay Kumar for Releasing AIRLIFT in Pakistan without Indian Flag Scene,
    Anti National Aamir khan refused to Release his dangal in Pakistan without National Anthem
