It’s a mega clash! Yes, on May 22, 2020, a big battle will take place between Bollywood’s two megastars, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. This is the first time that the duo will face a clash at the box-office, where Sallu Bhai’s much-awaited film Radhe Your Most Wanted Bhai and Khiladi Kumar’s much-hyped film Laxmmi Bomb will release on the same day. Another big-budget film approaching on the same date is the hit Hollywood film Fast and Furious.
On one end, Salman’s massive fans are eager to watch Bhai in a new avatar and on the other end, Akshay’s fans are also excited to watch his most awaited film Laxmmi Bomb in which the actor is playing a role of a man who turns into an intimidating woman. Screens seem to be more occupied on Eid 2020 as the makers of hit franchise, Fast and Furious, have dropped the heart-winning trailer of Fast and Furious 9 on Saturday, the film is slated to release on the same date.
Salman never worries about his film clashes but this time he will lock horns with evidently reigning box-office king, Akshay Kumar and the second biggest franchise in the world. Judging by the recent box-office trends if the clash happens, it would most certainly affect Radhe more than others. Indian box-office being the primary source of collection for Radhe would subsequently be kinder for Laxmmi Bomb whereas Fast and Furious 9 will be released worldwide and a bump at the Indian box-office wouldn’t affect it much.
After Dabangg, Salman’s every film has done the business of more than Rs 100 crore but his last release Dabangg 3 has not been able to impress the audience as well as the critics, however, the film has earned in massive numbers. Akshay, who is having a dream run at the box-office also hopes that his film does a great job.
Other than Salman, Radhe Your Most Wanted Bhai includes star cast like Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda, Jackie Shroff, Gautam Gulati, and Jacqueline Fernandez. Although the film completely relies on Salman’s shoulders for its collection.
Fast and Furious 9 has already created a huge buzz with the addition of WWE superstar John Cena to the star cast. Now, let’s wait and watch who rules the box-office this Eid.
