Housefull buddies Abhishek Bachchan and Akshay Kumar to clash at the box office this September
It was last year when Abhishek Bachchan kickstarted the shooting of Anurag Basu’s next project. The movie was not officially announced, but that wait of officially over. Not just Abhishek, the movie also stars some other talented actors like Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra and Pankaj Tripathi. The makers have also announced September 6, 2019 as the release date of the film. That date rings a bell for us. Akshay Kumar starrer Good News is also set to hit the screens on the same day which means neither AB nor AK will enjoy a solo release.
Good News, which is produced by Karan Johar, was earlier slated to release on July 19, 2019. But it was on Monday when the makers announced the new release date and on Tuesday the Abhishek Bachchan starrer was announced. Abhishek shares a great rapport with Akshay and Karan, so it will be interesting to see if this clash will eventually take place or will it be averted. Basu’s film is an anthology and a dark comedy which will be produced by Bhushan Kumar.
Meanwhile, Good News also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh. It is being directed by Raj Mehta. The movie is said to be based on a couple trying to have a baby.
