Looking back at the decade gone by, Shivaay v/s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016), Jab Tak Hai Jaan v/s Kid of Sardaar (2012) and Om Shanti Om v/s Saawariya (2007) remain a few of the most notable clashes that turned ugly for various reasons. There was bloodbath prior to their arrival, which led to attacks and counter-attacks galore. Things have been mainly serene when it pertains to solo releases, whether Ra.One (2011), Krrish 3 (2013), Delighted New Year (2014) or Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015), which didn’t have films to take on at package workplace. Still, Bollywood has actually seen better days on Diwali even when films have clashed. Let’s take a look at five such clashes that didn’t include war of words and had audiences making their own options instead of being driven by what stars and their fans needed to yell from the roofs.
DON V/S JAAN-E-MANN(2006)Shah Rukh Khan v/s Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. A clash like this is impossible today. Nevertheless, a little over a years back, that wasn’t the case. The market wondered to see how the two biggies would fare. However, makers of none of the two movies ever attempted to pull the other down. Farhan Akhtar took his stand on Don and Sajid Nadiadwala quietly brought his Jaan-e-Mann on screen.GOLMAAL RETURNS
V/S FASHION(2008 )The 2 films were as
different from each other as they might be. Golmaal Returns was a household performer from the combination of Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty. On the other hand, Madhur Bhandarkar gave fore his adult drama with Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Mugdha Godse. Both films had their distinct stories to be told and nobody was stepping over the other’s feet. Eventually, both movies did well.ALL The Very Best V/S BLUE V/S MAIN AURR MRS KHANNA (2009 )Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt,Akshay Kumar, and Salman Khan came together on Diwali 2009,
which stays on to be one of the most star-studded till date. Though Main Aurr Mrs Khanna turned out to be a no-show, some heat did begin developing for the remaining two, both which included Sanjay Dutt. Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn preserved self-respect in releasing their movies. GOLMAAL 3 V/S ACTION REPLAYY( 2010)Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar clashed again with Golmaal 3 and Action Replayy showing up on the same date. Cordial relationship in between the two superstars made sure that there was no bloodbathwhatsoever prior to the release of the 2 films. It turned out to be no-competition, though as Action Replayy started sluggish and could not get momentum while Golmaal 3 went from strength to strength and scored a century.GOLMAAL AGAIN V/S TRICK SUPER STAR(2017 )Luckily, sanity has been preserved this Diwali as Ajay’s Golmaal Again is seeing competition from Secret Super star, a late entrant into the Diwali slot. Previously, Rajinikanthand Akshay Kumar‘s 2.0 was expected to show up on this date. Nevertheless, when it moved ahead, Aamir Khan decided to bring his Secret Superstar on Diwali. One anticipated fireworks but Ajay and Aamir are too mature for that.Report Bollywood EntertainmentJoginder Tuteja DNA
