It seems like Devgn might easily surpass the opening-day collections of his last dud, Runway 34. Released on April 29, the Amitabh Bachchan starrer opened up with just Rs 3 crores at the box office.
This is not the first time when Ajay and Akshay are clashing at the box office. In 2009, Ajay Devgn’s comedy All The Best: Fun Begins clashed with Akshay Kumar’s action-adventure Blue, and in 2010, Golmaal 3 starring the former clashed with Action Replayy starring the latter. Both these times the Singham star came out victorious with his films succeeding more than the Sooryavanshi star.
And now, the two superstars are set to clash again with their films releasing tomorrow, i.e. October 25. In a recent interview, Akshay Kumar broke the silence on the same. Speaking to Hindustan Times, the actor said, “There is no clash. Let’s not refer to it as that. They are two films, with different appeals, releasing on the same day. It’s happened in the past and it will happen in the future. Fans will choose to watch the one that appeals to them the most or better still, watch both. The main objective is for our fans to enjoy the festival at the movies with friends and family.” Thank God and Ram Setu was released in cinemas on October 25.
