Raksha Bandhan to clash with Laal Singh Chaddha
Since the Bollywood movies began to return to the big screen this year, we have seen a pattern where one film consistently performs better than the other. On August 11, 2022, two major Bollywood films—Raksha Bandhan, starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar, and Laal Singh Chadha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan—would be released simultaneously. Amid the domination of South Indian film in the cinema halls.
Akshay Kumar on clash with Aamir Khan
Akshay during the trailer launch opened up about the clash and said "It's not a clash." It has to do with bringing together two good films. Many films were delayed or never released as a result of COVID-19, and others are currently awaiting a release date. So it seems sense that more movies will be released at the same time. I wish both movies wonderful success.”
