Two ‘nationalist’ actors who look confused with each other, historical films of both will face each other on June 3!


The release of many films was affected due to the Corona epidemic. A side effect of this was that, at the box office, the films were seen clashing with each other. In the year 2022, many big box office matchups have come to the fore. Another new showdown will be added in this episode. The clash is between none other than two of the most reliable, successful and biggest actors in Bollywood in the current era. Between Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar.

The matchup between Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar was revealed on Wednesday night. Indeed, on Wednesday, Yash Raj Films announced that the Akshay-starring period drama Prithviraj will open in theaters on June 3. A few weeks ago, the creators announced the release of Prithviraj on the date of June 10. Previously, the film, directed by Chanakya’s famed Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, was scheduled to release on Republic Day week. But due to the sudden increase in corona cases, manufacturers backed down in anticipation of the third wave.

Maidan and Prithviraj will be released on the same date.

The creators may have locked in the June 3 date for Prithviraj, but this window wasn’t empty yet. Here was the schedule for Ajay Devgan’s biographical sports drama ‘Maidan’. Maidan, the film by Ajay Devgan, tells the story of the golden age of football in India. Maidan’s story is based on the life of football coach Syed Abdul Rahim, who coached the national football team in the 1950s. It was during his tenure as coach that the Indian team was at its height. The Indian team led by Abdul Rahim surprised everyone by reaching the semi-finals of the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Football Tournament. India surprised the world by winning the gold medal in Jakarta in 1962. During Rahim’s training, the Indian team It counts as the best team in history. Ajay plays the role of Abdul Rahim in the film. Maidan is directed by Amit Trivedi and produced by Boney Kapoor.

nationalist actors in nationalist films

Both films are imbued with nationalist sentiments. The funny thing is that both actors are also counted as nationalist actors. Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar are seen as pro-BJP actors. Both have also made these types of films in recent years, which further strengthens this image of them. Be it Ajay Devgan’s period drama Tanhaji or Akshay Kumar’s Kesari. By the way, both actors have made many other films expressing nationalist sentiments. Both have never hesitated to display their closeness to the BJP.

In this sense, the box office clash of June 3 looks different and very different from the rest of the clashes. This will probably be the first time that two different movies that have almost the same spirit will face each other. The actors will be fine facing each other. Based on the theme of both movies, it is not hard to guess that the target audience of both movies is almost the same. It is not too difficult to differentiate that the followers of both actors are also very similar. That is, due to the presence of both films on the same date, there is a fight between them.

Prithviraj is the story of Emperor Prithviraj who established himself as the last Hindu Emperor of India. Chandrabardai’s poem volume, Prithviraj Raso, and other sources have become the basis of the story. Prithviraj won many wars during his lifetime. Tales of his bravery are sung even today. He too failed the foreign invasion under the leadership of Mohammad Ghori. When Ghori first came, he had to be defeated. Prithviraj is said to have spared Ghori’s life. But in the second battle of Tarain, Prithviraj had to face defeat at the hands of Ghori due to lack of help and betrayal by the allies. According to Prithviraj Raso, Ghori broke Prithviraj’s eyes and took him captive to Ghazni. However, here Prithviraj heard Ghori’s voice and killed him by shooting an arrow. According to Raso, Prithviraj Chauhan had the ability to shoot arrows. That is, he could aim at the target even after hearing the sound.

Fighting is not always a losing deal

It is clear that both movies will definitely split the audience of the other. However, who will suffer more and who will benefit, not much can be said about this claim now. In the clash of two movies, one or the other suffers a bit, but there are also examples where two big movies have been released simultaneously at the box office and both have endeared themselves to the public. Both films have been successful. There was a big showdown between Sholay and Jai Santoshi Maa in 1975, Gadar and Lagaan in 2002, but all the movies turned out to be huge hits. Even fans of Akshay and Ajay Devgan must have thought the exact same thing for Prithviraj and Maidan that both movies should be successful.
