Kaalakaandi vs Mukkabaaz
The first clash of the year will be between Saif Ali Khan-starrer ‘Kaalakaandi’ and Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Mukkabaaz’. While the former is a dark-comedy, the latter is a love story of a boxer. Let’s see who will win this battle.
PadMan vs Aiyaary
We had actually not foreseen this clash taking place. So, when the release date (26th Jan) of both the films were announced, we were expecting that one of them would change the release date especially the makers of ‘Aiyaary’ would opt to do that. But, from what it looks like, Sidharth Malhotra is all set to take on Akshay Kumar. It will be interesting to see the result of this clash.
Pari vs Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety
Now this is a clash we are looking forward to. While ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ brings back the hit team of ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ franchise, the other film, ‘Pari’ has the very talented actress like Anushka Sharma in the driver’s seat. It will be interesting to see on Feb 9, 2018 whether the audiences will accept Anushka after marriage or not.
Hichki vs Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran
The ‘Baabul’ actors John Abraham and Rani Mukerji are all set to have a battle at the box office. Rani makes a comeback with ‘Hichki’ on February 23, 2018, and John too is ready to release his ambitious project ‘Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran’ on the same date. While the trailer of Rani’s film is out and is being liked by everyone, we are yet to get the glimpse of John’s film.
Drive vs Hate Story 4
Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez are coming together for the first time on the big screen in ‘Drive’ which is slated to release on March 2, 2018. Well, the film will be clashing with the erotic thriller ‘Hate Story 4’ starring Urvashi Rautela.
2.0 vs Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi vs Baaghi 2
Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘2.0’ is undoubtedly one of the most awaited films of the year. The movie will be releasing on April 27, 2018. But, now there are two more films that are slated to release on that day, Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ and Tiger Shroff’s ‘Baaghi 2’. Let’s see if Kangana and Tiger will take on Rajinikanth or the release dates of their film will be changed.
Race 3 vs Fanne Khan
One of the biggest clashes of the year will be the clash between ‘Race 3’ and ‘Fanne Khan’. Well, it will be a battle between Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. However, it looks like this clash might be averted as both the movies star Anil Kapoor in pivotal role.
Thugs of Hindostan vs Haathi Mere Saathi
When a film starring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif is set to release we are sure no other filmmaker would dare to release his film on the same day. But, this year in Diwali Aamir, Katrina and Big B-starrer ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ will be facing a clash with Rana Daggubati’s ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’.
Total Dhamaal vs Namastey England
‘Total Dhamaal’ will bring back the superhit jodi of Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit on the big screen after a long gap, and ‘Namastey England’ has Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chorpa who have also given a hit like ‘Ishaqzaade’. Let’s see if the audiences will prefer to watch a hit jodi of 90s or they will opt for a young jodi of Arjun and Parineeti.
The year 2017 witnessed quite a few box office clashes like ‘Kaabil’ vs ‘Raees’, ‘Half Girlfriend’ vs ‘Hindi Medium’, ‘Baadshaho’ vs ‘Shubh Mangal Savdhan’, ‘Secret Superstar’ vs ‘Golmaal Again’, etc. While even due to the clash, most of the films did well, we cannot ignore that if the movies had solo release they would have done better.
Well, 2018 won’t be an exception. Many filmmakers have announced the release date of their films, and it looks like this year’s box office wars will be quite interesting. (Also Check: REVEALED: The New Year getaways of our favourite Bollywood stars)

‘Eat Sleep Bollywood Repeat’ is his life Mantra. Dance is his first love and Rani Mukerji is his eternal crush. He is someone who loves being himself, and as for the ones who don’t agree, his reply? “Talk to my hand!”
