The box office is likely to see a clash of the biggies on Gandhi Jayanti
Come October 2 and moviegoers will be spoilt for choice with three big-ticket films apparently scheduled to release on Gandhi Jayanti. The Farhan Akhtar and Amitabh Bachchan-starrer 'Wazir' will challenge Akshay Kumar's 'Singh Is Bling' and John Abraham's 'Rocky Handsome' at the box office, say industry sources.

"Several Bollywood producers eye Gandhi Jayanti to take their films to the theatres. Like last year, this year too, we will see some fireworks at the box office. The audience is sure to be spoilt for choice with big stars competing against each other, but the flip side to this three-cornered contest is that their business will be divided. It might not do any good to the cash registers," says an insider.
Trade experts say that makers of the three films must revise the movie release dates as they still have a lot of time in hand.
Producers of all the three films remained unavailable for comment.
