Bollywood movies didn’t work
In the past, both Bollywood films ‘Heropanti 2’ and ‘Runway 34’, which were released on the occasion of Eid, were badly beaten. Apart from ‘Sooryavanshi’, ’83’, ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ and ‘The Kashmir Files’, no Bollywood film has yet reached the 100 crore club in open theaters after Corona. While during this period South and Hollywood films like ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, ‘Pushpa’, ‘RRR’, ‘KGF 2’ have made new records of earning.
expectations are too high
Of course, now everyone is waiting for the Bollywood film ‘Prithviraj’. Not only this, it is also being released in Tamil and Telugu along with Hindi in response to South’s films being dubbed ,. But with the release of the trailer of the film, fans started trolling Akshay. He says that the film Akki looks more like Akshay than ‘Prithviraj’. He did not play the role of such a great emperor with seriousness. Film industry experts also say that the pairing of Ranveer Singh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali in films like ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Padmavat’ has drawn such a huge streak for historical characters that Akshay will have to face a tough challenge.
South and Hollywood Competition
Akshay’s troubles do not seem to end here, carrying the burden of the expectations of the entire Hindi film industry. The film ‘Major’ on Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who showed indomitable courage in the 26/11 attack to challenge Akshay’s film, is releasing on June 3. Actor Adivi Shesh starrer trailer of this film is being well-liked. The film will be released simultaneously in Telugu and Hindi. Superstar Kamal Haasan’s Tamil film ‘Vikram’ is also releasing in the same week. The film will also be dubbed and released ,. In such a situation, Akshay will have to face challenges. Not only this, the Hollywood film ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ will also be released next week after the release of ‘Prithviraj’. There is such a tremendous craze of this film that its advance booking has started from now i.e. a month ago.
There is also opposition
Another major challenge of Akshay’s film is that he is facing opposition from some organisations. In fact, some organizations, including the Karni Sena of Rajasthan, are opposing this film by saying that the emperor should be added to the film’s name Prithviraj. Along with this, some organizations have also raised apprehensions about showing the true story of Prithviraj in the film. That’s why they want to watch the film before its release. From Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavat’ to Ashutosh Gowariker’s ‘Jodha Akbar’, there have been many controversies regarding films made on historical background. Due to which there have been incidents of these films changing their names to their non-release at many places. Now as the release of the film nears, controversies are being feared once again.
However, after so many challenges, it will be interesting to see whether Akshay will come out as a winner or will be scattered in front of all-round difficulties. Especially the earnings of Tamil and Telugu versions of ‘Prithviraj’ will also be seen from South to Bollywood.
