Christmas 2020 clash - Akshay vs Aamir: The big clash has been confirmed. On Christmas 2020, Akshay Kumar's Bachchan Pandey will clash with Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha at the box office. Aamir Khan's Christmas releases have always been a blockbuster for instance Taare Zameen Par, Dangal, PK, Ghajini and 3 Idiots. So, surely this may be a mega box office clash, considering Lal Singh Chaddha will be Aamir Khan's first film in two years - after 2018 box office debacle Thugs Of Hindostan.
Akshay Kumar is returning to masala entertainer with Bachchan Pandey. It is directed by Farhad Samji and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. This upcoming Bollywood film is entertaining and extremely messy. The actor shared quite an intriguing first look poster too. In the poster, Akshay has been looking speechless in his new look - a muscular Akshay Kumar takes fame in the announcement poster of his new film Bachchan Pandey, in which he'll play the lead role. Akshay Kumar, dressed in a lungi with a three-stroke teeka on his forehead, looks aggressively at the viewers in the poster of the film.
On the other hand, Laal Singh Chaddha is produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures. The film will be directed by Secret Superstar director Advait Chandan, while actor Atul Kulkarni has written. It is a remake of Hollywood classic Forrest Gump. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, Forrest Gump is a 1994 American comedy-drama film based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Winston Groom.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh has confirmed the big fight, probably one of the biggest in recent history of the Hindi film industry. He tweeted, "The clash is CONFIRMED. Aamir LaalSinghChaddha vs Akshay BachchanPandey. Christmas 2020."
Akshay Kumar is currently busy promoting his upcoming film Mission Mangal. Directed by Jagan Shakti, the film also features Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan and Taapsee Pannu in key roles. It will hit the screens on August 15 with John Abraham's Batla House.
Apart from 'Mission Mangal', Akshay is currently shooting for Rohit Shetty's cop drama 'Sooryavanshi' co-starring Katrina Kaif. He will be next seen in Raj Mehta's 'Good News', 'Housefull 4' and also feature in Raghava Lawrence's 'Laxmmi Bomb'.
So, we can say that Akshay Kumar's Bachchan Pandey will clash with Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha at the box office on Christmas 2020.
