Akshay vs Salman in August 2012?

Well, there have been several star-comparisons on Indicine recently, but this could well turn into reality!

Back in 2006, Salman and Akshay together (in Jaan-e-mann) couldn’t match the box-office might of Shahrukh Khan’s Don. Half a decade later, the power has shifted considerably with both Salman and Akshay moving up the ladder. Salman is arguably the biggest superstar in the country with three back-to-back blockbusters. Akshay has slipped in the last year or so, but is still considered to be one of the top stars in the industry.

With Ek Tha Tiger now postponed to EID 2012, the Salman – Katrina starrer is likely to clash against Akshay Kumar and Shahid Kapoor’s Once Upon A Time in Mumbai 2!

While the shooting for Ek Tha Tiger has already started, the sequel to Once Upon a Time in Mumbai is yet to go on floors. Ekta Kapoor recently confirmed that the film is on schedule and will release by the end of August.

If the biggies do indeed clash and Salman Khan vs Akshay Kumar (and Shahid of course) does happen, who’d you pick? Our money is on Salman and Ek Tha Tiger. But since OUATIM was a good film, the expectations and curiosity from the sequel is quite high amongst the audience!



  • hopping is 100% salman movie becouse he is the best bolywood king of bolywood a live…when salman aroun sorry everybody whoever is there.. it wasthe one

  • I am looking forward to Once Upon a time in mumbai.. atleast itll have a story.. no guts to watch salman movies anymore.. Senseless.. cant believe his fans can watch the same movies type of movies every single time..

  • Just salman is king khan.no one can clash with salman sher khan like shahrukh, aamir khan, akshay kumar every one

  • Preference will be OUATIM for sure, as der r two talented actors sharing the screen together and that too Akki is returning with a bang with Action being “DAUD” :) Curious to see akki in such kinda role being a don and the chemistry bet’n akki and shahid after the comdey flick they had which was a disaster, yeah bt akki did his part very well ….. lets see wat happns….. fingers croossed, all d best akki.

  • I think audience would definitely opt for ek tha tiger compared to OUATIM 2. The opening of ek tha tiger would be nothing short of monstrous, especially considering the previous box office performance of salman’s movies. All his previous 3 releases have been blockbusters. Expectations are sky high. Salman is a huge figure and katrina’s presence would definitely add grace and beauty to the film. No one can underestimate the fan following of katrina as well. On the other hand, OUATIM 2 does not evoke much excitement. Akshay has been faring badly off late. Shahid has bits and pieces of fan following. You can only expect decent to average box office initial. The name salman is bigger than any movie. It would be good for OUATIM 2 to delay its release and not with ETT. It is better to be safe than sorry!

  • Both r suffers ,definietly ek thi tiger opening is less than bodyguard .Because many people r diappoint by bodyguard.

  • Sallu the ever biggest superstar of contry

    Akki & Shahid both are the kid infront of “Sallu”

    Ek tha Tiger will break all the records set by all the chnnu munnu

  • Akki ek to apka time kharab chal raha hai aur 2012 eid pe suna hai Dabangg salman ke sath film releases karoge mat releases karo akki maroge ye mai apke fans ke nate bol raha hu aise mai apka aur salman dono ka fans hu

  • Salman is good but SRK is the biggest superstar in Bollywood & Ra.one will be “All time blockbuster Super-duper hit” movi

  • When Akki was at his peak..he was giving ..Back to Back Hits..and was doing only comedy..
    And Similarly Salman is at his peak..and his giving back to back BB’s..but Like akki he’ll also fall..coz Salman is playing safe..
    I bet if he does any movie..apart from remake or action..he’ll flop..coz usse sirf Yeh Taip Kar ek action film banani aati hai..

  • Undoubtly EK THA TIGER will be another all time blockbuster from SALMAN. And except AAMIR and SHAHRUKH, no one can match the chrisma and star power of SALMAN KHAN. So its better for akshay to change his film’s date. Nahi to akshay ki list me ek aur naam jud jayega ‘once again a flop in mumbai’.

  • i love to see Once upon a Time in Mumbai 2….but if giv preference then….no two tht 4 ek tha tiger yar….sallu bhai ki film ari…dats makes a eid complete to me…as i am chirtian 4 me eid is
    1)having sheer korma at my frds home

    3) seeing sallu bhai film on a eid day with frds………in single screens if i get ticket there

  • how can 1 call salman d king..d tag doesnt suit him..king title cnt b shared among khans…derz nli 1 king dts srk..
    ex:shahenshah for amitabh,perfectionist for aamir ,greek god for hrithik cnt b shard ..plz salman khan fans get educatd first….lol..i thnk salman mst b named as actless actor ..haha..

  • @arfaz educated ha?? ok lets talk with figures dude…salman has more 100+ crores fims than all the actors…ok u wanna talk abt amitabh….and say him shahenshah ok…his last film was budha ho gaya tera baap…which was a utter flop…hehe…and yes badshah khan king khan shahruck rht..his last fil was jst a hit in india..remember mnik figure or do u want me to show it up..hehehe and yes hrithik kites bechari patang ud ne se pehle kat gai…..dude u grow up

  • Salman khan is king of the king. And akki is flop kumar.sharukh ko pata hai ki kingsalman ka naam lene se uski film hit hojaigi.

  • dear srinath,
    Latest top star.
    1.salman khan
    2.aamir khan
    3.Akshay kumar
    4.Shahrukh khan
    5.Hrithik roshan
    Salman khan is no.1 top star,Akshay kumar is the khiladi action super star,
    But shahrukh khan is the Idiot actor .
    But salman khan is acting like tamil top star Surya shivakumar.But some seen such as action movie, personality, body language like salman khan . Surya shiva kumar is equal to salman khan.

  • The incoming yr ll b khiladi kumar’s yr. His all films ll b blockauster.He ll the top the list soon again…….
    Malik Wassi…..Magraypora pattan.

  • Salman khan’s ek th tiger wiill win because salman khan is far better than shahid and akshay kumaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…. salluuuuuuuuuuu rocks

  • Eid belongs only to one man’s movies salman…….,all the best.Akki i don’t want to see u giving another flop by clashing with salman khan.
