Clash of Titans Again: This time it's Shahrukh and Akshay!

Recently we saw some big movies with with stars clashing against each other and we can say that it is not a wise decision. On Republic Day 2017 we saw a clash of the titans at the box-office with Shah Rukh Khan's 'Raees' and Hrithik Roshan's 'Kaabil' both releasing on the same day.

Now, there's another set of big Bollywood films heading for a mighty clash on the Independence Day weekend. According to an update shared by film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Akshay Kumar's 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' will collide with Imtiaz Ali's Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer at the box-office. The two films will hit cinemas on August 11, 2017.

Earlier, Akshay Kumar's 'Crack' was scheduled for an Independence Day release and 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' was to hit the screens on June 2, 2017. Due to production delays, 'Crack' will not be releasing this year, and Shah Rukh's film could have availed a solo release. The change in the release date of Akshay's film has now slotted the two superstars against each other at the box-office.

Incidentally, last year's Independence Day weekend had also seen a big clash, between Akshay's 'Rustom' and Hrithik's 'Mohenjo Daro'.

How celebrities reacted on nepotism debate

How celebrities reacted on nepotism debate

When Kangana Ranaut accused filmmaker Karan Johar of nepotism on his chat show, it was taken lightly as the conversation ended up on light notes. But later when Karan hit back at Kangana and said "She was my guest and I had to hear what she had to say. She has a right to have an opinion. When she says 'Flag bearer of Nepotism', I just want to say to her, I am glad she knows what it all means. I don't think she has understood the entire meaning of the term."

He even went on to say that "if she finds the Bollywood industry so bad, she might as well leave it."

This whole thing of nepotism has opened a platform and many celebrities have their own opinions. Here are few celebrities statements about nepotism in Bollywood.

Aamir Khan

I think it's a normal human tendency to try and help people who you love and care for. It doesn't have to be someone who is part of your family, it could be someone you care for. It's a very natural emotion. I try to make sure that in my work, I don't let it interfere. As a creative person, I am responsible to my audience and I give huge importance to that. I try not to bring in emotions in my work.

Alia Bhatt

I think a star kid can get that first film due to nepotism. But to constantly get films just because you belong to a filmy family, is not possible. I don't want to take any names, but there have been many examples of sons and daughters of lineage who have come and gone without achieving anything. What about that? Eventually, people come to see you as an actor and not because your family is famous, and you can't fool them. I am aware people do struggle to make a mark in the industry, but it's not right to blame nepotism. I didn't plan my birth in the Bhatt family. I can't change that and today, I am successful not just because my family is famous, but also because I have worked hard and you can't take it away from me.

Swara Bhaskar

I think more than nepotistic, Bollywood operates on relationships. It's not a Sarkari organization holding exams where you get through on the basis of merit. It's feudal in its nature where certain people have the power to make casting calls hence relationships matter. Of course, it matters if you are a star child. But look at Shah Rukh Khan, he is the biggest star and he is an outsider. So is Deepika (Padukone), Priyanka Chopra and Kangana. Talent doesn't remain hidden in the industry.

Sonam Kapoor

Every morning I wake up and it's great bathroom reading. It's mudslinging of the worst kind. I don't know Kangana. I know Karan very well. I find Kangana very entertaining and that's about it. I don't want to comment on something that looks opportunistic, honestly.

The adventure junkie who loves trekking and climbing the hills is currently stationed in Gulmarg (Jammu & Kashmir) taking skiing lessons and learning the sport.

Amit has opted for a 4-day beginner course and is being trained by the professional trainer Fayaz. Interestingly, the talented actor who used to hate skiing because of the falls earlier is now eager to catch on with the sport and take it to the advanced level.

He says, "I used to go for skiing with my father when I was a kid! Now, it's like re-introducing myself to skiing, it's a great sport. I am doing a 4-day beginner course right now. I've had a few falls but they say in skiing, falling is a part of leaning. It is also very essential to do and learn the basics very well, since I am skiing after a long time. I'm getting trained under Fayaz, who is on the national team and very skilled and a great trainer."

"This is season's last snow and from April the snow will start melting! I aim and hope to be back soon and make more trip and brush up my skill for advanced slopes. Since I have spent a lot of time in the hills, my first love is climbing and mountaineering. Skiing takes a lot of patience and mental alertness. I told Ramu sir (Ram Gopal Varma), that I am of to skiing. He said, 'please come back in one piece. We have a film to release and promote,'" adds Amit.

Talking about Gulmarg, he says, "This is one of the most beautiful places in our country. The people here are beautiful, helpful and very warm. They work very hard battling the cold and making conditions safe for tourists and skiers.
