Akshay’s Rustom vs Hrithik’s Mohenjo Daro in August 2016

Akshay Kumar has announced his next film with his ‘Baby’ and ‘Special 26’ director Neeraj Pandey. The film, titled ‘Rustom’, will release in theatres during the Independence Day weekend next year.

Interestingly, the same weekend has been booked by Ashutosh Gowariker’s ambitious period film ‘Mohenjo Daro’ starring Hrithik Roshan in the lead.

Not only does it set up a massive clash between superstars like Akshay and Hrithik, but it’ll also be a clash between two of the most acclaimed directors in the industry, Neeraj Pandey and Ashutosh Gowariker.

Hours before his 48th birthday, Akshay made the announcement on Twitter.

  • Can’t see my 2 favorites clashing!! 2nd October 2016 is still vacant,hope Rustam shifts to that date :)

  • So Akshay Kumar in 2016:

    Airlift (History,drama,thriller) 22nd Jan

    Housefull 3 (Comedy) 4th June

    Rustom (Romantic thriller) 12th Aug

    Namastey England (Romcom) Yet to be announced!

  • What a joke! @indicine post something different. Everyone knows Hritik will give Akshay a lifetime lesson. Akshay should better postpon that movie. Hands down eyes closed ears shut Hritik will always smackdown Akshay.

    No offense akki fans but we just have to call a spade a spade. Don’t even try releasing any movies with Ak Srk Sk Hr Ad. Am sure producers will already be reviewing this situation. Who wants to bankcrupt with Flopshay?

  • A good Combo.. have trust on Neeraj-Akki.. and on the other side it’s Hrithik-Ashutosh’s MD which is one of mine most awaited non- SRK’s films as well as it is a bigger film than Rustom.. but it is such a bad idea that they announced Rustom with MD bec a movie lover i don’t want two good movies from good directors & actors to do clash.. Hope Rustom will postpone as MD was announced 2 years before and 2nd clash has never been proven useful for any film .

  • Raees vs Sultan
    Shivaay vs Ae Dil hai MushKil
    and now
    Rustom vs Mohenjodaro

    All adding to Aamir Khan’s delight…Dangal fav. to be Highest Grosser of the Year 2016

  • Hritik Roshan??? should be the happiest actor as of when the news came out that his clashing with Gobar next year. ??????

    Akshay kumar ??? should be the saddest actor as of when the news came out that his clashing with Hritik next year. ????.??

  • Mourning period for Jokers fans. Kicked dumped when he dared clashing with Ajay 3 times. Challo dekte hai kisme hai dum. My Verdict already is Hritik gets his 4th 100 crs by then while Akshay is kicked out from Bollywood. Only Bhai Khan can save him by pleading with producers by then to still give him chance but this time not commercial mainstream movies but B grade movies or roles Govinda now is doing. So sad?

  • 48 years old? Thought he was 53. He couldn’t even deliver 55 crs independence weekend without a clash even though he was the supporting actor how comes he thinks he will clash with Greek god? 4th/5th(depends) most influential current b.town superstar?

  • everyone out there…i can have a bet that Rustam ll beat MD… it’s an open bet…of 3000Rps..
    Is there anyone who dares to accept that ?

  • surely it will be averted since akki and have been neighbours and recently. i know heritik is bigger star now but mohendro is a meger budget film and any sort of disadvantage will not be good for it. for example if mohendro crosses 180cr and budget is 200cr it will be flop.and its not easy to get 250cr without eid diwali or crismas.It will be alose sitiution for both films, Rustom looks like it will be pandey’s first out and out commercial film.

  • Lol.. Akshay kumar should remember before clashing wid Hrithik Roshan that “Hrithik Roshan’s movies Weekend Collection =Akshay Kumar’s movies lyf tym collection. Surely Akki will give another disaster. Mohenjo Daro will collect near around 250-270cr and Rustom will Struggle to collect 50cr mark.

  • Rustam? ya chota rustam? whatever bring it on it has non other than 60 cr club star while MD has superstar hrithik so hrithik will easily beat small film like 60 cr club wala chupa rustam. and @indicine stop calling joker boy as superstar. for him words like “Jokerstar” or “Superjoker” suits more. :) :-P :-D

  • The number of multiple fake acounts that goes to meltdown and starts abuses when ever akki is mentioned really shows akki is still abig star.
    We don’t see them bashing Tushar kapoor or jacky bagnani.e

  • Wont clash!! Hrithik is a much bigger crowd puller!! Other than khans only hrithik commands record openings!! Akki hasnt grown on his crowd pulling!! Wld like him to but sumhow its not happening!! Clash aint happening 4 sure!!

  • Dream movie: Comedy movie starring: Akshay Kumar, Govinda , Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan, Ritesh Deshmukh, Suniel Shetty , Paresh Rawal,Rajpal Yadav,etc. Directed by: Anees Basmi, Rajkumar Santoshi David Dhawan or Priyadarshan.
    Zayed Khan and Fardeen Khan because they are good actors that don’t get good roles.
    Fardeen Khan awesome in Heyy Babyy , All the Best, Life Partner, No Entry,etc
    Zayed khan awesome in Shaadi no.1, Sharafat Gaye Tel Lene,etc.

  • Rastom idea is good as i always am looking forward to akshay-neeraj combo so it is awesome. I do not like the release date as clash will benefit no one and also Akshay fan base is not stable nowadays. If they would release on some other date it would be best. So, i was wondering why Akshay had so few movies lined up for next year(Airlift, Housefull 3) and then suddenly both these announcements came(Rastom, Namaste England). LOL. But who cares as i will watch them all.
    Akshay has 1 neeraj movie in 2016(Rastom) and 1 in 2017(Baby 2) which is good and all but people might get tired of this combo. Maybe that is why they are changing the genre to romantic thriller!!! Hope Akshay has a good year as his line up is promising!

  • @ smita, you suffer from amnesia, welcome was released with taare zameen pe and we all know what was the result, also OUATIMD released along with chennai express and for first 2 -3 days gave stiff competition, as the content was not good so was rejected, same thing happened when blue released with all is well, it had a record opening then was rejected as content was pathetic, also aitraaz was released with veer zaara and was a hit. So please do your research and then put your idiotic comments.

  • Rustom will be postponed…. mohenjo daro will have a solo release… so both films will do well at boxoffice… neeraj pandey & ashutosh gowarikar are the most under-rated directors of bollywood

  • No interest in both movies. But One thing is sure that Mohenjo Daro will thrash Rustom by a big margin.

    Mohenjo Daro Life Time – 130 Cr

    Rustom Life Time – 45 Cr

  • Today most of the comments are against AK…….because this year his movies does not work at box office.
    I THINK….
    If AK’s SIB, AIRLIFT & HOUSEFULL 3 work at the box office……..THEN
    All who posting against AK will surely remember about HK’S BANG BANG which is a semi hit…….& also posting comments against HK’ MD and call him JADU BOY.

    All are cameleons……..

  • I don’t think the clash will take place.
    If so , both movie will be affected badly !!!
    I want any movie by any means clash with
    mental Pandey.
    I will be the happiest if aamir faces two clashes next year during Christmas !!!

  • Rustom looks interesting by its name but
    mohenjo daro is much more awaited movie .
    so mohenjo daro box office vs Rustom.
    Mohenjo daro : 180 to 230 crore ( with clash ) …. 220 to 270 crore ( solo )

    Rustom : 60 crore to 90 crore with clash
    90 to 130 crore ( if solo ) .
