Looks like this June Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar will have a box office faceoff. Ajay Devgan’s Action Jackson and Akshay Kumar’s Holiday: A soldier is never off duty, will be hitting the theater on the same day, that is June 6.
Earlier, both the movies were set to release on May 1. But after requesting from Ajay, Akki had decided to postpone the release of his movie. But now they are again on loggerheads as both of then now want to release the movie on June 6, as Aamir Khan’s Peekay’s release has been postponed to Christmas.
Now the blame game has started as both the makers are pointing fingers on each other. According to the maker of Action Jackson, he said that “As far as I know, Holiday was releasing on May 1. In fact, we had a discussion with Ajay Devgn last week and it was mutually decided that our film would release on June 6.”
But on the other hand, Reliance Entertainment, makers of Holiday are claiming that “Ajay had requested that I move the release date of our film Holiday from May 1. So when we heard that ‘Peekay’ was no longer releasing on June 6, we decided to slot our release accordingly. We were not aware that now Ajay has shifted his film Action Jackson to the same day.”
