Box Office: Pictures of Akshay, John and Prabhas will be held on the same day
Pictures of Akshay Kumar and John Abraham clashed at the box office on August 15, 2019, now ‘Saho’ has intensified the competition. It is heard that Prabhas’ film ‘Saho’ is being released on Independence Day. Saho is a multilingual film, which is being made in Hindi and Tamil in addition to Telugu.
Akshay Kumar’s ‘Mission Mars’ and John’s ‘Batla House’ are coming on the occasion of 15th August. These two pictures are based on true events. ‘Mission Mars’ is being produced by R. Balki, who has filmed a successful and social message like ‘Pad Man’ with Akshay, and the film is being directed by Jagan Shakti. The film is based on India’s first mission to send a spacecraft into space. Announcing the date on Twitter, Akshay wrote – “Mission Mars, the story of the common man with the extraordinary dream of achieving a lesser known impossible mission, will be released on August 15, 2019. See you in the cinema now.
At the same time, John’s ‘Batla House’ is a film based on a controversial encounter that took place on 19 September 2008 at Batla House, Delhi. John is co-producing the film with Bhushan Kumar and Nikhil Advani. The film is written by Ritesh Shah and directed by Nikhil. The shooting of the film is going on. Shooting is taking place in Delhi, Jaipur, Lucknow, Mumbai and Nepal. Mrinal Tagore is playing the lead role in the film.
‘Saho’ is a mega budget film that costs Rs 200 crore. It has cost 90 crore rupees. Some underwater sequences are also being shot, for which Prabhas has taken scuba diving training. It took 60 days to prepare the props used in Saho.
It was carried by a crew of 400 technicians. The 30-day shoot took place in Abu Dhabi, where dazzling action sequences were shot. Saho is directed by Sujit. The film stars Neil Nitil Mukesh, Jackie Shroff and Chunky Pandey in pivotal roles. Interestingly, Bhushan Kumar is involved in the production of both Batla House and Saho.
However, in 2018, Akshay and John’s films ‘Gold’ and ‘Satyamev Jayate’ were released together on 15th August. Both films are successful. ‘Gold’ has collected more than Rs 107 crore, ‘Satyamev Jayate’ has collected around Rs 90 crore. During the media discussion about the clash, both the stars took a positive attitude.
This decision of Akshay proved to be good and the film was a success at the box office. On August 15, 2016, Akshay’s film ‘Rustam’ competed with Hrithik Roshan’s film ‘Mohenjo-Daro’, where Akshay won. Both films were released on 12 August. Where ‘Rustam’ became a super hit by collecting more than 127 crores, ‘Mohenjo-dado’ can collect only 58 crores. With the release of Saho in 2019, things could be a bit difficult for both Akshay and John.
