"Escape Plan", also featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, was earlier set to release Oct 25, but it has now been shifted to Oct 16. Interestingly, the two actors had shared screen space in "Kambakkht Ishq".

"We feel we have content and space to come with 'Boss' in theatres. Both the films are heating up in the market and it will be interesting to see them together," said an official from PVR.

"What's more interesting than to see Sylvester pitted against Akshay given the fact that they have worked together in the past. And not to forget, the film also has Arnold Schwarzenegger, yet another name synonymous with action," the official added.
