Is Akshay Kumar unhappy with the Gold, Satyameva Jayate clash?

The actors' films are all set to to clash against each other on August 15

Published: 07th July 2018

Akshay Kumar shares a close bond with John Abraham, but he does not seem to be happy with his film Gold and the latter's forthcoming film Satyameva Jayate getting released on the same date.

Akshay and John have together worked in Garam Masala, Desi Boyz and Housefull 2 but now, Gold and Satyameva Jayate are going to clash against each other on Independence Day (August 15).

Talking about the clash, John had said, "Akshay is my good friend. We get along really well and we wish best for each other. However, avoiding a clash between the two films is T-Series and Excel Entertainment's responsibility."

Akshay sarcastically expressed his displeasure over the issue by taking a jibe at John's statement. "It is true that he is my friend... and I have learned that anyone can release their film with other actor's film so, next time, I will also do the same (laughs). We can release our film together on any occasion, be it Eid, Diwali or Christmas as we all are friends" said Akshay, while interacting with the media during the music launch of Gold along with his co-actors, Mouni Roy, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh, Sunny Kaushal, Kunal Kapoor and director Reema Kagti on Friday.

A historical sports drama, inspired by India's first Olympic gold medal, Gold traces the "golden era" of Indian hockey through the journey of Tapan Das, a young assistant manager in 1936, who dreams of playing for an independent nation.

It is directed by Reema Kagti and produced by Excel Entertainment. The film is scheduled for release on August 15.
