2022 will be of of those years for Indian Cinema where we will see some inevitable movie clashes at the box office. On September 26, the makers of Akshay Kumar has announced the release date of their upcoming film Raksha Bandhan on August 11, 2022. Now, Prabhas starrer Adiupurush has decided to release their upcoming film on the same date itself.
That means, it is going to be big clash on August 11, 2022 where Akshay Kumar and Prabhas film will see a face off. Though, both the movies are completely different in terms of content and that means they are not a big competition to eachother. Raksha Bandhan movie is a social drama and a family entertainer. On the other hand, Prabhas film is a mythological based drama film with lot of actions in it.
In reality, Prabhas film Adipurush is a pan-India film releasing in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam languages. On the other hand, Raksha Bandhan movie will only targer the Hindi circuits as usual.
Now taking about August 11, which is a best release date as on the same day India will celebrate Raksha Bandhan festival, followed by Independence Day on August 15. There is Parsi New Year on August 16 on Tuesday and most probably Janmashtmi on August 17 or 18. That means, it is a perfect release date for a film as it will boost the collection in the first week due to multiple holidays.
Talking about the budget perspective, Adipurush is one of the costliest films of 2022 and will surely have a budget over 150 crores whereas Raksha Bandhan budget would not exceed over 50 crores in every possible scenario.
Altogether, both the films will get maximum number of screens in Hindi circuit and will definitely incur losses to each other due to clash.
