Earlier this week, Ajay Devgn announced his ambitious directorial venture, MayDay. The film will have a start to end schedule. The actor also mentioned that it will be released on April 29, 2022.
The film releases in the beneficial extended Eid weekend. However, this is well known that Eid is a Salman Khan bastion. This calls for a big clash on Eid 2022.
A source was close to the development was quoted as saying, “Since the film is titled MayDay, Ajay Devgn decided to release the film in Aprilend and beginning of the month of May. Also, with Eid also falling on the same weekend (Monday, May 2), it’ll be a double benefit for them since International Day Of Labour, Maharashtra Day and Gujarat Day fall on Sunday, May 1.”
The source adds, “Salman Khan obviously would not like to let go of the Eid week. By then, he’s expected to finish Tiger 3. And if all goes well, even Kick 2 will be ready for release. So either of the 2 films are expected to make it on April 29. If that happens, it’ll result in a clash of two big films. Tiger 3 and Kick 2 both, obviously, would be mounted on a grand scale. MayDay, meanwhile, is also expected to be a big-screen spectacle. Even the star cast comprising Ajay Devgn, Amitabh Bachchan and Rakul Preet Singh is exciting. Audiences are sure to be spoilt for choice on Eid 2022.”
However, a trade expert confides, “Both the films of Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan are going to be very costly. The clash would prove detrimental. We are hoping that either of the films will move and that only one film arrives in the Eid week.”
Next year Radhe – Your Most Wanted Bhai is expected to clash with John Abraham’s massy actioner Satyameva Jayate 2. Both the films are slated to release on May 12, 2021.
