All Akshay Kumar and Housefull fans can heave a sigh of relief as the film will now have a clash-free opening at the box office. Earlier reports stated that Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer Jagga Jasoos and Emraan Hashmi’s Raaz Reloaded will clash with Housefull 3 at the box office; however the first two films have now moved their release dates ahead.
This is great news as we all can see how clashes affect a movie’s expected collections. A trade expert said, “A clash doesn’t help anyone, especially when it is between biggies. One of the films is bound to suffer, or at least have a dip in collections. It is good that rather than negativity around a clash building up, those involved with Jagga Jasoos and Raaz Rebooted have announced their decision a good four months in advance. It is as mature as it gets.”
Housefull 3 is set to hit the screens on June 3, 2016 and apart from Akshay it also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Lisa Haydon, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nargis Fakhri.
