Akshay V/s Akshay at the box Office!

Neeraj Pandey's untitled film, starring Akshay Kumar and Tapsee Pannu which is yet to go on the floors, will be released simultaneously with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gabbar also starring Khiladi Kumar.

According to reports, both of Akshay's films are slated to release on Republic Day i.e January 26, 2015. A source close to Bhansali says, "We decided that Gabbar is perfect for a Republic Day release. We took a call on the release three months ago. Its theme is socio-political reform. It's the story of one man's crusade against corruption. Akshay, who has been doing a string of action-adventure entertainers, would be doing a film very relevant to the nation's conscience. And what better slot for this film than Republic Day?"

Contrary to that Neeraj Pandey says, "Fortunately or unfortunately release dates are a great event in the box-office calendar. We've chosen to reserve January 26 as the release of our film although we haven’t even started shooting the film.” When informed of Gabbar releasing on the same day Neeraj replies, “I am not aware of which other films are releasing that day. If Gabbar is also coming we are fine with that."

While earlier Akshay's films clashed with other actors, this time he will come face to face with himself at the box office.
