Akshay Kumar Does A Massive Release Re-shuffle



Busy times for the  Superstar. When you are Akshay Kumar,  you can  move your  releases around  as  you like. But  the double  release shift that Akshay pulled off on Monday left a lot of people wondering  about   the growing power  of Akshay’s boxoffice clout.

 Akshay has shifted not just one but two forthcoming releases within  24 hours.

 Firstly his Bachchan Pandey, produced  by  his buddy Sajid Nadiadwala and  directed  by their Housefull director Farhad Samji , was to come on December 25 alongside Aamir Khan’s  LalSingh Chadha(the official remake of  the  Tom Hanks  classic Forrest Gump). In a gesture of magnanimity Akshay has voluntarily  moved Bachchan Pandey to the Republic Day slot April 22 , 2021.

 It is  to be noted that  Christmas is traditionally regarded as Aamir Khan’s   slot while some of  Akshay’s recent hits such as Baby and Airlift were released on Republic day. Akshay’s Padmantoo was to release on  Republic Day in 2018 but again, in  another gesture of magnanimity  Akshay had removed  Padman from the ‘Republic’ week  to  facilitate the release  of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat.

 As Akshay takes  Bachchan Pandey to  Republic week 2021,  his  other film Nikhil Advani’s stylish and  chic  period film Bell Bottom which  was  to release  on January  22 will now release  on  2 April.
