Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar’s eagerly anticipated movie ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Again’ will clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s hugely anticipated movie ‘Chennai Express’ as both the movies are scheduled to release on Eid this year.
But Akshay Kumar isn’t apprehensive about clashing with Shah Rukh Khan as he feels that the festival of Eid is big enough to accommodate two movies.
“I see this in a positive way. Eid is a big day. It is big enough for two films. There is no point in thinking too much over it,” said Akshay Kumar to IANS while unveiling the first look of his movie.
In ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Again’ Akshay Kumar will be playing the role essayed by Emraan Hashmi previously in ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai’.
“I am just playing my role. I haven't thought of it as a benchmark. I just listened to my director. I never thought that I had to cross any benchmark," he said.
The actor also said that this movie was very different from the movies he has done previously.
‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Again’ is directed by Milan Lutheria, who also directed ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai’.
Along with Akshay Kumar the movie also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan.
The movie will release on 8th August.
