Who will win the tug of war: Akshay Kumar or Salman Khan?
Mumbai: With four consecutive Eid blockbusters - ‘Wanted’, ‘Dabangg’, ‘Bodyguard’ and ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ to his credit, Salman Khan has become the undisputed king of the Box Office. And the hunk of an actor seems to have complete authority on film releases as far as this festival is concerned.
And now, Salman Khan’s fans have another Eid release to look forward to- ‘Sher Khan’.
Buzz has it that Khan has zeroed in on Eid for the release of his brother Sohail Khan’s film. And incidentally it happens to be the same day when Akshay Kumar starrer ‘One Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2’ is set to release.
A source close to the unit while talking to a media house said, “Its God’s decree, After Tiger, Bhai is destined to play Sher. We’re going ahead with Sher Khan for Eid 2013."
Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan have been thick friends for long. Hence it will be interesting to see if either of them will budge from the date of release for the sake of friendship.
Nonetheless, fans of the two stars can expect a double Eidi on the auspicious day!
