Salman promoted ‘Rustom’ on his own, we are all united: Akshay Kumar

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has said Salman Khan promoted his upcoming film ‘Rustom’ on his own. He pointed out that it shows the industry is united.

“He did it on his own. It shows we are all united. Around 180 films are made in the industry (in a year) and many are left incomplete. We are not race horses that we have to push forward and show one-upmanship… “

“There is a lot of work in Bollywood and not enough heroes and heroines. There is plenty of space for all of us and it’s not about competition” Akshay said.

Earlier this week, Salman had posted a video on his official Twitter page asking his fans to watch ‘Rustom’ in theatres.

“Humare film industry ke Rustom-e-Hind ki film aa rahi hai naam hai ‘Rustom’. August 12 ko jaakar dekhiye Akshay Kumar ki film ‘Rustom’.”

‘Rustom’ is based on real life story of Indian Navy officer Commander K.M. Nanavati, who shot dead his wife’s lover but was pardoned. The film, which carries the tag line ‘3 shots that shocked the nation’, will release in theatres on 12th August.



  • Well he is not trying to promote Rustom.. he is only trying his best to demote mohenjo daro.. bitter truth.

  • EveryBody is with RUSTOM …
    songs are chartbusters
    very Atrrative story script
    A superstar Akshay Kumar
    Best production : Neeraj Panday

    About Mohenjo daro:
    Positve side :
    Hritik Roshan came after 2 years
    He is very good actor also
    He has good FAN Following
    Songs are not too good
    Trailer response was an average
    New female lady
    Weak VFX
    weak Promos

    But best of luck to both movies.
    Both are also my fvt actors

  • They are best friends n as a friend salmankhan has promoted Rustom n the same should not be taken as khans or somebody is against HR. I will watch both the movies. But Rustom fdfs.

  • anything around 11 to 12 crs initial would be gud for rustom bcoz of its appeal limited only to big city plexes and also bcoz of its clash with mj…….!!!!…

    mj will open at around 12cr…although hr is returning after 2 hrs becoz he is not a bigger star than akki…. akshwy sir has more stardom than hr…..

  • Salman, Ajay, Ranveer, Anil Kapoor, Kjo, Sonali every one is united but why just for Rustom? Unity in the industry only for Rustom? Is hrithik not a part of industry? Is mohenjo not a big bollywood release? …… all uniting against hrithik ….. because he is a nice guy and soft target …… pathetic way to show unity

    and akki dont give this talk of salman doing on his own ….. this is all a promotional activity so just accept it that its all planned …… which is fine …… but why no one supporting hrithik here ….. mohenjo is being killed here

  • Whats a big deal.
    Salman promoted Rustom and its good for Rustom .
    Why media is trying to create rift between Salman and Hrithik Fans.
    Even Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh promoted Rustom.
    Grow up media , Grow up
    Nothing against Rustom .
    Both Rustom and Mohenjo Daro will be a Clean Hit.
    Good Luck to both

  • Now FDFS for Rustom. I already knew that Rustom’s word of mouth is far better than Mohenju Daaru. But Rakesh Papa will again manipulate collections to save his boy. Will watch Rustom on its first day and will watch Mohenjo Daro only if content is good. My predictions for Rustom First Day Collection – 14.26 crores
    My predictions for Mohenjo Daro First Day collection – 13.90 crores

  • problem with rustom is that it is not mass entertainer….. plus family audience will also dont like thise genre … than best chance remain with youth in multiplex … if content of MD is good than it will be very difficult for rustom ….

  • Thanks Salman for support…

    If it could be possible that We all fan can learn such respect from our heroes…

  • It’s very good thing… Some Fans are stupid…. They are behave like a dirty mind otherwise all star are united. They praise each other movies. And a true fan never bash other star and his movies. So as like a true fans I like both movies rustom and MD. I am a die hard akki fan yet I wish both movie should do good business and everybody watch both movies according to their preference. I will watch Rustom first.

  • If its compulsory to pick either chustom/mohen

    my pick mohen…directd by lagaan fame aushtosh

    sorry salman,better luck next time

  • Hrithik is a serious threat to the Khans. They can’t just stand his superstardom any longer including Ranveer Singh. Everyone in bollywood wants to run him down. Go Hrithik. Don’t even let any of their stupid antics pull ur down. Ur work will speak for u. U only need God by ur side and no one else matters. Mohenjo Daro will TRASH Rustom come August 12th. Watch this space

  • Already startd smiling …thinkng abt jokerz dialog delivery,body language and xpressnz in chustom

  • Whole industry against Greek God
    Some people desperately want to downgrade Mohenjodharo with the help of Rustom
    God bless these morons

  • On clashing with Rustom, It will happen many many times! You should have a sense of grace!
    – Hrithik Roshan
    Proud to be his fan.

  • Akshay kumar and I are friends. Next time a clash happens people can be relaxed about it!
    – Hrithk Roshan
    Proud to be his fan
