Looks like 2018 is going to be a year full of star studded clashes at the Box Office. Sushant Singh Rajput’s Kedarnath will clash with Shah Rukh Khan starrer Anand L.Rai’s film, Sidharth Malhotra’s Aiyaary will compete with Anushka Sharma’s Pari on Feb 9, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Fanney Khan will most likely release with Salman Khan’s Race 3 during Eid. Now according to the latest reports, Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan and Ajay Devgn starrer Total Dhamaal will be pitted against each other at Box Office on Diwali 2018.
Aamir Khan-Amitabh Bachchan starrer Thugs of Hindostan, helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and produced by Yash Raj Films was slated to release on Diwali next year. And now, Indra Kumar, who will be directing Total Dhamaal, has expressed his wish to release it on the same day. This would make Aamir and Ajay’s clash inevitable.
Thugs of Hindostan also stars Amitabh Bcahchan, Katrina Kaif and Dangal fame Fatima Sana Shaikh in lead roles, while Total Dhamaal also starring Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi and Jaaved Jaffery, will mark the reunion of Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit after 20 years.
Ajay Devgn’s Golmaal Again clashed with Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar on Diwali 2017. While Ajay Devgn ‘Golmaal Again’ proved to be a blockbuster, Aamir’s ‘Secret Superstar’ with Zaira Wasim in the lead role, appreciated by critics and audiences alike and did decent business at the Box Office.
Interestingly, Bollywood superstars Aamir Khan and Ajay Devgn have worked together in 1997 Indra Kumar film Ishq.
