The territorial battle for Bollywood superstars to release their films on specific festive weekends has begun. John Abraham started it in 2018 when he ignored Akshay Kumar’s dibs on the Independence Day weekend.

When John decided to release Satyamev Jayate on August 15, 2018, and Batla House the same day in 2019, alongside Akshay’s Gold and Mission Mangal respectively, it was seen as invasive.

So Akshay has chosen to do to Aamir Khan what John did to him: Akshay is all set to release his new project Bachchan Pandey alongside Aamir Khan’s Lal Singh Chaddha on Christmas 2020.

Christmas has always been Aamir’s stake- hold, with his biggest films like Ghajini, Taare Zameen Par, PK, 3 Idiots  and Dhoom 3 being released on Christ-mases past.
