The most fearless star-actor of Bollywood is Akshay Kumar. In 2018 Akshay postponed the release of his Pad Man to give Padmaavat clear run at the box office. Latest reports state SS Rajamouli is already angling for Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi, the big cop film directed by Rohit Shetty which is scheduled for release on Eid 2020, to be removed from an Eid release so that RRR can be the solo release for Eid.
Karan Johar the producer of Sooryavanshi who is very close to Rajamouli is being asked to reconsider his release date. But here is why Akshay Kumar is unlikely to budge this time. According to sources, There’s really no competition between a film bringing together the deadly combo of Akshay and Rohit Shetty, and a film by Rajamouli. Not everything that Rajamouli makes would have the universal appeal of Baahubali.”
In fact, the RRR team is making frantic attempts to get North Indian audiences into theatres. Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt have been roped into to balance out the Ramcharan/NTR Jr combo. More Bollywood stars are being approached to work in RRR. Apparently, Sanjay Dutt and Varun Dhawan have also been called out.
