Entertainment Desk:Republic Day 2017 experienced a clash of the titans at the box-office with Shah Rukh Khan's 'Raees' and Hrithik Roshan's 'Kaabil' both releasing on the same day.
Now, there's another set of big Bollywood films heading for a mighty clash on the Independence Day weekend. According to an update shared by film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Akshay Kumar's 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' will have collision with Imtiaz Ali's Shah Rukh Khan- Anushka Sharma starrer at the box-office. The two films will hit cinemas on August 11, 2017.
Earlier, Akshay Kumar's 'Crack' was fixed for an Independence Day release and 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' was to hit the screens on June 2, 2017. Due to production delays, 'Crack' will not be releasing this year, and Shah Rukh's film could have availed a solo release. The change in the release date of Akshay's film has now slotted the two superstars against each other at the box-office.
Incidentally, last year's Independence Day weekend had also seen a big clash, between Akshay's 'Rustom' and Hrithik's 'Mohenjo Daro'.
