Akshay Kumar, after having a career best year of 2019, will now have three releases in 2020.
There was a clash of two biggies at the end of this year as Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey were slated to hit the big screen on 25 December. Aamir expressed his feelings about Akshay and Sajid Nadiadwala’s great response to his request for changing the release date of their film.
Now Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey will hit the theatres on 22 January 2021 which will allow Khan’s film a solo go at ticket windows on Christmas festive season. The actor’s confirmed four films of this year are Sooryavanshi, Laxxmi Bomb and Prithivraj.
Bachchan Pandey’s release is second such instance where Khiladi of Bollywood has avoided the clash with another huge film. Earlier he changed the Rohit Shetty directional Sooryavanshi’s release date to give free space to Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai on Eid 2020.
