Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar will square off at the box office on August 11. However, even before ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ clash in theaters, a war has erupted between the two films on social media. Some users support both films, while some are demanding to boycott their films due to statements by Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan.
Now all eyes are on August 11.
Southern films are doing better than Bollywood films in the Hindi belt since the Corona pandemic. Maybe that’s why Aamir Khan organized a special screening of ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ for Southern stalwarts like Chiranjeevi, SS Rajamouli, Nagarjuna. Not only that, the actor also worked on the reviews received from southern actors and tried to improve the film. Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar had no such experience with ‘Raksha Bandhan’.
Social media users demanded a boycott of ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ due to past statements made by Aamir Khan, meeting Turkish First Lady Emin Erdogan while filming ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ and some scenes of PK. People are also trolling Akshay Kumar because of the scenes from the movie “OMG” and the tweet made during Mahashivratri. However, the protest against ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is much less than that of Aamir-Kareena’s film.
Both films are released on the day of the holiday. According to reports, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ was made on a big budget of Rs 180 crore, while Akshay’s film was made on a budget of Rs 65-70 crore. ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ was passed with ‘UA’ certificate by Censor Board on August 2, 2022. According to reports, the running time of Aamir’s film is 164.50 minutes which is 2 hours 44 minutes 50 seconds. Meanwhile, the runtime of Akshay Kumar’s film which passed with the “U” certificate is 110 minutes or 1 hour 50 minutes.
Only time will tell which of the two films will win this box office race.
