Gold vs Manikarnika: Who shall win this Independence Day clash?

Feature

After entering a truce with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and averting a box office clash between Padman and Padmaavat, ‘superhero’ Akshay Kumar must once again use his diplomatic charm and save his next film, Reema Kagti’s Gold, from a similar fate. According to reports, Kangana is aiming for an Independence Day release for her period drama film. 

Like Padmaavat, Manikarnika has already started to court controversy ahead of its release. 

What makes the matter trickier is that both films are period epics riding on similar sentiments. While Gold chronicles Independent India’s first Olympic win, Manikarnika brings to screen the wartime exploits of Rani Laxmibai.

Considering nature of the Indian box office, a clash of this proportion can cause heavy damage to both films, not to mention create trouble for other small fish releases.

Rubbishing the rumours, Kangana had clarified, "There is nothing controversial in Manikarnika. It's really bad on our part to even think about creating such controversies for a woman who gave a tough fight to the British rulers while fighting alone for the country's sake.”

Well we're still waiting for the official statement. Stay tuned for more updates!
