In Bollywood, these days it's become quite common for filmmakers to use common sense and avoid a clash between two big films. Only recently, you had Karan Johar prepone the release of his home production We Are Family from Sept 10 to Sept 3 in order to avoid a clash with the eagerly awaited Salman Khan starrer Dabangg.
Now yet another clash has been averted between Sanjay Dutt starrer Knock Out and Ajay Devgn starrer Aakrosh. Both the above mentioned films were to release on Oct 1 but better sense prevailed among producers Sohail Maklai (of Knock Out) and Kumar Mangat (of Aakrosh) and eventually it has been decided that while Aakrosh will release as scheduled on Oct 1, Knock Out will come out on either Oct 8 or Oct 15.
Knock Out directed by Mani Shankar is an edge of the seat thriller starring Sanjay Dutt, Irrfan Khan and Kangna Ranaut while Aakrosh directed by Priyadarshan is a story about honour killing starring Ajay Devgn, Akshaye Khanna and Bipasha Basu in lead roles.
Considering that the lead actors of the two films Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn are also good friends, we are sure that taking such a mutually beneficial decision wouldn't have been too hard for the makers of the respective films.
