Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar were all set to clash at the box office next year with Shah Rukh’s next with Imtiaz Ali tentatively titled ‘The Ring’, with both the films being released on the same date. But turns out that the clash has now been averted.


Akshay Kumar’s ‘Crack’ has now been postponed to a 2018 release and the reason for the same has nothing to do with Shah Rukh’s film. A source reveals, “‘Crack’ has been pushed to 2018. Akshay already has ‘Jolly LLB 2’, ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ and the biggie ‘2.0’ releasing in quick succession next year. ‘Jolly LLB 2’ releases on February 10 next year. ‘Toilet’ will come mid-next year around June-July. And ‘Robot 2’ is scheduled for a big Diwali release. So it’s extremely difficult for Akki to fit in another film in between these ones.”

The source added, “He also has to shoot for the film which has not even begun rolling. So in no way will ‘Crack’ be ready before time. And he won’t clash with SRK too.”

This is the third time that Akshay and Neeraj will be collaborating after ‘Baby’ and ‘Special 26’.
