Shahrukh Khan-Ajay Devgan’s clash on the new release date of Jawan, what will happen at the box office?

After Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana’s film ‘Dream Girl 2’, the new release date of superstar Shahrukh Khan’s film ‘Jawan’ has been announced. Earlier both the films were being said to be released simultaneously on July 7. However, the release date of ‘Jawan’ was already fixed on June 2. But the makers of the film have postponed the release of the film in search of a better time. Regarding this change, Shah Rukh Khan himself has said that when we make something better for the audience, it takes time. This is the reason that the release date of the film has been extended. It is being told that the post production work of the film has not been completed yet. Since VFX and special visual effects have been used extensively in the film, its editing is taking time.

The new release date of the film ‘Jawan’ has been announced by Shah Rukh Khan himself and the film’s producer Gauri Khan by sharing the video on social media. But with this announcement, a box office clash between Shahrukh Khan and Ajay Devgan has been decided on 7th September. Ajay’s film ‘Maidan’ is also releasing on the same day. Looking at the track record of both the superstars, it can be said that it is going to be difficult for the audience to choose between the two films. Shah Rukh Khan is very excited after the bumper success of his recently released film ‘Pathan’. In such a situation, he is ready to compete with any actor. But Ajay Devgan whose recent release film ‘Bhola’ has flopped, what steps he takes, it will be a matter to be seen. It can be difficult for them.

If we look at the box office history, Shah Rukh Khan has always defeated Ajay Devgan. Before this, there has been a huge clash between them at the box office twice. First of all, in the year 1993, both of them had a fight. At that time Shah Rukh’s film ‘Baazigar’ and Ajay’s film ‘Bedardi’ were released together on the same day. Everyone knows that ‘Baazigar’ was an all-time blockbuster film. The film had a worldwide collection of Rs 32 crores. On the other hand, the film ‘Bedardi’ collected only 6 crores worldwide. The difference between them can be clearly seen by looking at the collection figures of both the films. After this, in the year 2012, Shahrukh and Ajay once again came face to face. Shahrukh’s film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ was released on 13 November 2012 on the occasion of Diwali.

Along with the film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’, Ajay Devgan’s film ‘Son of Sardar’ was released. This time also Shahrukh overshadowed Ajay. The film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ collected Rs 210 crores worldwide (Rs 120 crores in India). While the film ‘Son of Sardaar’ collected a worldwide collection of Rs 150 crores. After falling behind at the box office twice in a row, Ajay started avoiding the clash of films. This is the reason that on January 25, 2017, when his film ‘Badshaho’ and Shahrukh’s film ‘Raees’ came face to face, he had extended the release date of his film. After this, the film ‘Badshaho’ was released on 1 September 2017. Nine months later, he released his film. He also got the benefit of this. Made in a budget of 90 crores, the film collected 125 crores.

Once again Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgan are face to face at the box office. If history is seen then Ajay can extend the release date of his film. Anyway, the condition of Bollywood is going bad for the last few years. In such a situation, the filmmakers are taking the release date of their film back and forth after talking to each other. Otherwise earlier they used to have so much ego that they deliberately used to mess with each other. Some superstars like Salman Khan and Aamir Khan had monopoly. Every star had even booked a festival for himself. At that time only his films used to be released. For example, Diwali by Shah Rukh Khan, Eid by Salman Khan and Christmas by Aamir Khan were named after their films. At this time no other artist could dare to release his films. But now time has changed.

There is also an interesting question here that why the makers of the film ‘Jawan’ have chosen the day of 7th September only. In such a situation, tell that Thursday is falling on 7th September. Due to Janmashtami on this day, there will be a national holiday. If people have a holiday, then they will go to watch the film. In this way the film will get a long weekend of four days. The film can earn hugely till Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The same experiment was also done with Shahrukh’s blockbuster film ‘Pathan’. This film was released on 25 January. That day was Wednesday. The next day, Thursday, January 26 was a holiday. After that there was a holiday from Friday to Sunday. In this way the film got a weekend of five days. The opening collection of this film was great. It is the highest grossing film of this year so far.
