Akshay Kumar vs Aamir Khan at Box Office With Raksha Bandhan-Laal Singh Chaddha Releasing on August 11 – Your Pick?

Akshay Kumar vs Aamir Khan at Box Office: Akshay Kumar has announced the release date of his next movie – Raksha Bandhan which will be hitting the theatres on August 11. The actor took to his social media accounts to share a clip as he wrote how Raksha Bandhan is a story of ‘feelings’ and bondings. His Twitter post read, “Here’s to all I and @aanandlrai did throughout the shoot of #RakshaBandhan – laugh like there’s no tomorrow! Ironically, as we wrapped the film last night, there was a bittersweet tinge of sadness. Off to the next. New day, new roller coaster (sic).”


Interestingly, the announcement comes weeks after Aamir Khan revealed the release date of his film – Laal Singh Chaddha. Aamir’s film, which is an official Hindi adaptation of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump, is also slated to hit the screens on August 11. With Akshay also taking over the screens on the same day, it is going to be a big clash at the Box Office.

Laal Singh Chaddha which also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya in important roles, was earlier releasing in April. However, the makers decided to postpone the release to avoid the clash with Yash’s KGF: Chapter 2 at the Box Office.

Raksha Bandhan, directed by Aanand L Rai, is set in the heartland of India and features Bhumi Pednekar alongside Akshay in the lead. This will be the first film for Akshay after the failure of Samrat Prithviraj which was released earlier this month and opened a pandora box of trolling for Akshay and the makers. Which film are you excited to watch on August 11 now – Raksha Bandhan or Laal Singh Chaddha?
