Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar’s much-awaited film Bachchhan Paandey is all set to release this Friday. The film also stars Kriti Sanon, Arshad Warsi, and Jacqueline Fernandez in pivotal roles. The star cast of the movie is currently busy promoting the film on several platforms. Speaking of that, recently in an interview Khiladi Kumar admitted that the film’s box office collection will be affected by SS Rajamouli’s upcoming Pan India actioner ‘RRR.’
The Magnus opus RRR starring Ram Charan, Jr NTR, and Alia Bhatt is set to release on 25th March, exactly a week after Akshay’s Bachchhan Paandey’s releases. RRR has been creating a huge buzz ever since its announcement and is expected to be a mega-hit. While speaking with News18, the Rowdy Rathore actor when asked whether RRR will affect the box office collection of Bachchhan Paandey, stated that because of the pandemic, a lot of movies will release one after another.

“To say at the moment impact, yes it obviously, it is going to impact. Every movie is going to impact each other. Everything, the businesses are going to go down by 30 to 40 percent. It is a very unfortunate thing but you have to deal with it," he was quoted saying.
The actor added that one has to understand the fact that when the theatres open with 50 percent occupancy, it will have an impact on the film but still makers are releasing their movies. Akshay further explained, “Still, my industry survived and we went ahead with it. So yes, to come back to the normalcy, it will take another year or more than a year probably".
‘Bachchhan Paandey’ is directed by Farhad Samji and will see Akshay playing the role of a deadly yet filmy gangster, who aspires to be an actor. The movie will hit the theaters on 18th March 2022.
