THE SRK - VIJAY BATTLE CONTINUES

THE SRK - VIJAY BATTLE CONTINUES

By Prathap

In an industry where everyone wants their films to do good business at the box office, it is all but rare for two big films to take on each other at the turnstiles. While this applies for every industry regional and Bollywood alike, cross-cultural clashes are more or less common. Interestingly, Shah Rukh Khan and Vijay have both faced the line of fire with their releases on the same day. Here is a list.

2007 - That year's Diwali saw SRK's Om Shanti Om taking on Vijay's Azhagiya Tamil Magan (albeit only in the Chennai release centre in Tamil Nadu). Om Shanti Om launched Deepika Padukone on her dream debut and created box office records.

2011 - Velayudham and Ra.One became an odd couple at the box office. While Vijay's Velayudham garnered enough profits, Ra.One earned criticism for its portrayal of Tamils in poor light.

2012 - Thuppakki and Jab Tak Hai Jaan released for 2012 Diwali. The action thriller Thuppakki became an instant smash hit. Jab Tak Hain Jaan marked the final film of Yash Chopra.

2013 - This year's Eid will be a cracker what with Vijay's Thalaivaa and SRK's much awaited Chennai Express releasing on the same day. Chennai Express has already received flak for Deepika's Tamil accent in the trailers and it will be interesting to see how Rohit Shetty will pass muster.
