As per latest announcement, Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha is set to clash with SRK’s Ring ( or Rehnuma or whatever it is).
Toilet Ek Prem Katha was earlier scheduled to release solo on 2 June but have now postponed to release on 11 August with Ring.
Clashing with this film will give the film 2 free weeks as next notable release is Reloaded Starring Sidharth Malhotra, Jacqueline Fernandez which releases on 25 August.
This clash is now usual for SRK as since last 5 years his films are clashing Jab Tak Hai Jaan V Son Of Sardar (2012); Chennai Express Vs Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara (2013)-although not technically a clash but it released a week earlier; Dilwale Vs Bajirao Mastani, Fan Vs The Jungle Book; Raees Vs Kaabil.
We have already written a article about clashes there you can check out the clashes of these 2 actors.
SRK has generally won the clash with Akshay Kumar all times except for one time where SRK did a B-Grade Maya Memsahab and Akshay Kumar’s Waqt Hamara Hai which was an out and out massy flick.
As far as the opening is concerned Ring will definitely open better than Toilet but its a matter of concern for the lifetime battle, because SRK’s movies in the last 9 years generally start fading after 1st week, the last 2 movies where his movie showed good trend was Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Chennai Express and both were record grossers.
Ring and Toilet both cater to the multiplex audiences, but it will be an interesting thing if Imtiaz Ali makes a Jab We Met or a Love Aaj Kal which were Pan India Films.
Akshay Kumar’s Robot 2 might clash with Golmaal Once Again, so he will have 2 clash this year.
