Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao-starrer movie ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ is making the right noises all over ahead of its release. However, it is being compared to the 90s’ movie ‘Saajan’ which starred Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit in it. The movie had a love triangle and this one too has a love triangle, possibly that’s why comparisons are being drawn. So when Ayushmann was quizzed about the same during a media interaction, here’s how the actor responded.

Said Ayushmann, “You know it will be compared to any love triangle film like that, but the thing is, the director and the writer bring a lot to the table. The treatment is very real. It’s about a book ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, how these characters meet each other and how the story moves forward. The director comes from the school of ‘Nil Battey Sannata’ and the writer of the film, Nitesh Tiwari has helmed the film ‘Dangal’. So you see the kind of films they’ve done before and how they treat the film, so that will dictate the fate of the film.” (Also Read: Ayushmann and Bhumi’s chemistry is endearing in ‘Kanha’ from ‘SMS’)

He also spoke about the image makeover through his character Chirag Dubey in the film. He stated, “Yeah, this is the first time I’m playing an aggressive guy, a bully in a film because I have never done that in real life. As a part of growing up, of course you get bullied. But, in my career, I have never done a role like that. But having said that, he is not an outright bully, probably he is a selfish guy, but he has his vulnerable moments. So yes, it’s different for me for sure.”

The movie is directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, written by Nitesh Tiwari and will be releasing on August 18, 2017.

Akshay Kumar speaks up about his film ‘Gold’ clashing with Kangana’s ‘Manikarnika’

Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘PadMan’ was earlier slated to release on January 25, 2018. It was going to clash with ‘Padmaavat’, but to give a solo release to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial, Akki decided to postpone his film.

Well, ‘PadMan’ got a solo release too on February 9, 2018. While the film has done a good business, there were more expectations from it.

Akshay’s next release will be ‘Gold’ which will be hitting the screens on August 15, 2018. However, it looks like the movie won’t be getting a solo release. Reportedly, the makers of Kangana Ranaut-starrer ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ are also planning to release the film on Independence Day.

Recently, when Akshay was asked about his movie clashing with Kangana’s film, the actor said, “I don’t believe in the word ‘clash’. There are going to be two-three movies coming together because there are 180 films and there are 52 weeks. You have to come together.”

When he was asked that in 90s there were four-five films coming together, but now even if just two films are releasing on the same day, it becomes a big deal, to which the actor said, “Earlier when business used to happen it used to continue for silver jubilee and golden jubilee, but now it is just four days of business, so that is why everybody wants to catch that three-four days.”

Well, we quite agree with what Akshay said. Now let’s wait and watch whether it will be Akshay vs Kangana at the box office or one of them will change their release date. (Also Read: PadMan: Men in some places aren’t allowing their wives to watch the film, says Akshay Kumar)

Akshay Kumar has no idea about the release date of '2.0' and we wonder why

While his latest outing ‘PadMan’ continues to run at the theatres, Akshay Kumar has already began working on his next ‘Gold’. The teaser recently came out, and it is already being touted as a wonder-tale everyone should know about.

However, the one film everyone is awaiting with bated breathe is Rajinikanth-starrer ‘2.0’, wherein Akshay plays the antagonist.

With the film having undergone a number of delays already, Akshay was recently asked if it is likely to be pushed again.

“I don’t know. That’s one movie I don’t know about,” he said.

We quite don’t know why is it so, though!

Akshay also has ‘Kesri’ in his kitty and is likely to appear in ‘Moghul’ as well, a film that narrates the story of unnatural death of T-Series founder Gulshan Kumar.
