This Republic Day, while Varun Dhawan clashes with Shradha Kapoor on the dancefloor in Street Dancer and Kangana clashes with kabaddi players in the akhada in Panga, the two parent films are poised for a face-off at the boxoffice.
However the Street Dancer director Remo d’Souza sees no conflict of interest with the other film .Remo met Kangana on the dance reality show Dance India Dance when she came as a guest.Remo is a judge on the show.The two met warmly and shared some discernibly positive vibes.
“I really like Kangana,” says Remo warmly. “She speaks her mind fearlessly and she is a terrific actress. I hope to work with her soon.”
About the so-called clash Remo says, “There is no clash between Street Dancer and Panga. They are very different films, as different as two films can be.I look forward to seeing Panga. I am sure it will be a good film.”
There have been Republic Day clashes in the past where two films have done well. In 2015 and 2016 , Akshay Kumar’s Baby and Airlift trounced the competition during Republic day from Dolly Ki Doli and Kya Kool Hain Hum , respectively. In 2017, both the Republic Day releases the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees and the Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaabil did well.In 2019, Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika clashed with the Bala Thackeray biopic Thackeray for Republic Day. Kangana had the upper hand.
In 2018, Akshay Kumar averted a Republic Day clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavatby voluntarily postponing his Padman.
