In Bollywood, some A-list actors have certain holidays reserved for their films. Like for example, Bhaijaan Salman Khan releases his films during Eid, whereas Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan prefers releasing his films during the Christmas vacation. So when Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty announced that their film ‘Sooryavanshi’ will be releasing during Eid 2020, it raised several eyebrows.

Later, Salman Khan announced that his next film ‘Inshallah helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be releasing on Eid 2020. Now, this meant that Eid 2020 will witness the clash of Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan at the box-office. However, Rohit Shetty decided to avoid the clash and release his film on March 27, 2020 instead.


Following the announcement, Akshay Kumar’s fans were miffed with him for bowing down. Recently, opening up on averting the clash, Akshay told PTI, “It is always a good sign that the two movies do not come at the same time. It is good that it (clash) is averted. However, the clash between any two films is likely to happen. We are making 210 Hindi films and we have 52 weeks in a year so we are bound to have two or more films releasing on the same date.” 


Interestingly, while talking about his other film ‘Bachchan Pandey’ clashing with Aamir Khan’s ‘Lal Singh Chadha’, Akki had told Mumbai Mirror, “We should be happy if we have two big releases in a week. This year, on the Independence Day weekend we had three (‘Mission Mangal’, ‘Batla House’, and ‘Saaho’) till one bowed out.”


Looks like Akshay is happy about averting a clash with Salman Khan. However, when it comes to clashing with Aamir Khan’s film, he is raring to go.
