As we all know, this August will see a big box office clash between Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan for their respective films RakshaBandhan and Laal Singh Chaddha. For the uninitiated, both the actors are also producers of their respective films, though Rakshabandhan will be released by Zee Studios and Laal Singh Chaddha will be distributed by Viacom 18.
Both the films have started the fight for screen counts as a clash is not only a fight for better box office numbers but also the ego of respective stars.
As of now, Aamir Khan is bound to get better showcasing in multiplexes all over with a 65:35 divide in favor of the LSC actor. But single screens will opt for Akshay Kumar as it seems more massy plus Laal Singh Chaddha has stricter conditions/prices in place
We will bring you more updates on the same soon with the multiplex-wise breakdown.
Raksha Bandhan marks the second collaboration of Akshay Kumar and Rai, following 2021’s Atrangi Re. The film will hit the theatres on August 11, 2022. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar as the female lead opposite Kumar.
On the other hand, Laal Singh Chaddha starring Aamir Khan will also hit the theatres on August 11, 2022. The film is an official remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump and also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and South actor Naga Chaitanya.
