Following the Maharashtra government’s announcement of plans to reopen theatres, directors and producers are scrambling to schedule release dates and determine the optimum festive seasons for entertainment. Raksha Bandhan, starring Akshay Kumar, and Adipurush, starring Saif Ali Khan and Prabhas, appear to be going head to head at the box office.
In the Om Raut directed film, Telugu star Prabhas will star with Bollywood stars Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan. In Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada, the film will be released. Sita will be played by Kriti, and Ravan will be played by Saif. Prabhas will don the character of Lord Ram.
Adipurush’s producers have stated that the film would be released on August 11, 2022. Raksha Bandhan’s producers confirmed the film’s release on the same day. The film Raksha Bandhan, which celebrates the brother-sister relationship, was supposed to be released on November 5th. The film was, however, repeatedly postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Both films will battle on big screens during Independence Day weekend next year.
When it comes to the box office success of these films, it’s a difficult question to answer. Knowing Akshay Kumar, who is known for his box office smashes, Rakshabandhan would undoubtedly draw a large crowd to the theatres. On the other hand, after his incredible smash Baahubali, Prabhas’ box office record became the talk of the town. However, when Prabhas was later seen in Saaho, the film was a box office disappointment considering the expectations.
As a result, we can conclude that Akshay Kumar’s film is a safe bet for audiences who do not want to be upset after watching a film. Akshay will undoubtedly win this race at least in Hindi market.
