Mumbai, Dec 27: Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan, Sanjay Dutt And Sunny Deol are all fighting for a single aim : release of their respective films on Diwali 2012.
With five A-list actors clashing at the box office,the ticket windows are sure to light up as well, says the report.
As of now,five films have been scheduled to release on the same day in November next year,
These include, Shah Rukh Khan's film directed by Yash Chopra, Akshay Kumar's Khiladi 786, Ajay Devgn's Son Of Sardar, Sunny Deol's Ghayal Returns and Sanjay Dutt's Thanedaar Returns.
Yash Chopra has already announced that his untitled project starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif will be releasing on Diwali.
Recently, Himesh Reshammiya who launched his next production Khiladi 786 (to be directed by Rohit Shetty's assistant Ashish Mohan) with Akshay Kumar has also announced a Diwali release.
A couple of days back, it was announced that Sanjay Dutt starrer Thanedaar Returns,to be directed by KS Ravikumar will also release on the same date.
Ajay Devgn, who has always tasted success during Diwali is aiming for a Diwali release for Son Of Sardar.
Sunny Deol's home production Ghayal Returns to be directed by Rahul Rawail is also trying for the same date.
Says Vajir Singh, editor, Box Office India : "This will be the biggest clash at the box office ever.
"Producers like to release their films on Diwali. It is a festive season and films do good business.
"However, in this kind of a scenario, the films are sure to eat into each other's business."
Box office analyst Taran Adarsh says, "I guess it is the stage where people want to block the date and say, Hamaari picture a jaayegi, doosre ki nahi aayegi.
"Not more than two films should release not only on Diwali but on any other weekend.
"An exhibitor cannot accomodate. The common man doesnt have time, money or the inclination to watch five films. So why clash ?"
"Ghayal Returns and Son Of Sardar shoots have already begun.
"Himesh's film with Akshay is yet to go on floors and there is no status to Thaanedar Returns as of yet.
"Shah Rukh has already given dates to Yash Chopra so that is confirmed.
"As of now, there are five films but as the weeks go by, we would get a clearer picture.But I still maintain that this is not a healthy trend".
