Those who follow Bollywood and it's box office can easily attest the fact that Akshay Kumar is the true superstar for the last 4 years at least. It is very apparent that it was he who has been fighting the onslaught of the South Indian films or the so called pan-India films to keep Bollywood steady in terms of BO and presence in international cinema. Now, Post-Lockdown situation has forced the makers to announce multiple films and their release dates which resulted in clashes.
Among the biggest are Akshay Kumar's Prithviraj and Shahid Kapoor's Jersey. And even Bell Bottom has to fight with F9 from Fast & Furious series. But it is evident that even with competition Akshay can thrive as his stardom is too big. Even those who cannot get tickets for the other films watch his movie which is a guaranteed bang for buck rather than going home without entertainment.
