It turned out to be one of the most talked-about clashes of 2018 when Akshay Kumar and John Abraham released their respective films Gold and Satyamev Jayate on 15th August. Though both the movies made big moolah at the cash counter, clashes do affect business at large.
It looks like the duo has decided to repeat the history once again in 2019 as Akshay Kumar has just confirmed that his recently announced film Mission Mangal will release on the same date as John Abraham’s Batla House. Yes, both the films are poised for their theatrical release on 15th August, 2019. The date marks the 63rd Independence Day of India and comes with a long weekend.
Akshay Kumar, who plays a key character in Mission Mangal, took to Twitter to confirm the release date of his movie. “A powerful true story of ordinary people with extraordinary dreams, on an unheard of mission to achieve the impossible. #MissionMangal will come alive on 15th August, 2019. See you at the theatres,” read his tweet.
Besides Akshay Kumar, Mission Mangal also stars Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi and Nithya Menen in principal roles.
Mission Mangal is being helmed by Jagan Shakti and co-produced by R. Balki in association with Fox Star Studios.
