New Delhi The festival of Eid in 2020 (Eid 2020) is going to witness a big box office clash. Akshay Kumar’s film Laxmi Bomb is reported to be released on Eid next year, while Salman Khan has hinted at Kick 2.
On the afternoon of 26 August, there was an uproar in social media after the news that Akshay Kumar’s film Lakshmi Bomb would be released on Eid next year. Many people associated with the industry, including trade analyst Taran Adarsh, broke the news by tweeting. Taran wrote that Lakshmi Bomb will hit theaters on May 22, 2020. The film is directed by Raghav Lawrence, while Kiara Advani is in the female lead role with Akshay.
Hours earlier, Salman Khan had informed from his Twitter account that his film (InshaAllah) with Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been pushed forward, but he will meet his fans on Eid 2020. It was revealed by Salman’s tweet that he will not let the Eid of 2020 go empty.
Hours after this tweet, Salman Khan made another tweet hinting that Kick 2 might be released on Eid next year. Salman wrote – Do not think so much about me, I come to heart… and also on Eid. You may remember that Salman was heard speaking this monologue in Kick. With this tweet, Salman has done both – almost even told the name of the film and confirmed the release on Eid.
Both of these tweets have confirmed that Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan’s Mahatakkar can be seen on Eid 2020. Interestingly, before this, Akshay’s Suryavanshi and Salman’s Inshallah were to be released on Eid. However, Rohit had shifted Suryavanshi’s release two months ago due to his relationship with Salman Khan. Salman himself announced the new date of Suryavanshi by tweeting, which was 27 March 2020, which averted Akshay and Salman’s clash.
After changing the date of Suryavanshi, Akshay’s fans were very angry and he expressed his displeasure about this in social media, after which Akshay appealed to Fans not to do so. The horror comedy Lakshmi Bomb Muni 2 is a remake of Kanchana. The story of the film revolves around a person who has the soul of a transgender. The film was first to be released on June 2020. This will be the first time in the last few years, when two big films are going to be released on Eid.
