Kamal Haasan vs Shruti Haasan on May 1st

On May 1st 2015, Kamal Haasan and his daughter Shruti Haasan will be battling it out at the box office. Kamal’s keenly-awaited film ‘Uttama Villain’ and Shruti’s ‘Gabbar Is Back’ also starring Akshay Kumar, will release on the same day.

“This is the first time in Shruti’s career that her film is releasing on the same day as her father’s film, though the genre and language is different. Shruti is definitely excited about this as it’s all within the family” a source close to Shruti said in a statement that was released to the media.

While ‘Uttama Villain’ is a story about a 8th century theatre artist and modern day megastar, ‘Gabbar Is Back’ is an out-and-out commercial entertainer for the masses.

Since Kamal is one of the biggest superstar in the South, so it remains to be seen what sort of impact ‘Uttama Villain’ has on the business of ‘Gabbar Is Back’.

May 1 is not a national holiday, but is a holiday in several states in India for ‘May Day’. In the state of Maharashtra, which happens to be the biggest state for Hindi film business, May 1st is holiday for Maharashtra Day



  • Kamal Sir you are a legend. I think for me though GIB is first choice but will definitely watch out for your film n hope to get a good dvd copy with subtitles.

  • No Effect Will Be There As Akki Movies Not Work In South. But The Benefit Film Would Get Due To Shruti Will Be Cancelled.

  • be it talent or the caliber shruti is way behind kamal Hassan so rather than calling it shruti v/s kamal hasan(just because they are related) it would be fair enough to call it akshay v/s kamaal hassan

  • Will surely watch Kamal Sir’s movie.He’s a gem of an actor who never fails to surprise the audience.Heard somewhere that the movie is facing certain problems from certain groups as they have found the lyrics of one song to be anti-religion.

  • Lets c which movie will open bigger
    . Tamil movies r doing well in their region .
    Akshay vs kamal hassan…oh yeahh

  • Kamal Haasan movies are must watch. I hope it releases in Hindi in my center.

    I think Gabbar will surely work with the masses.
