Two Sonakshi films to release on June 6th
Once again, two of Sonakshi Sinha's films 'Action Jackson' and 'Holiday' are clashing at the box office. Which one will she prefer to promote this time?
When her last two films, R…Rajkumar and Bullett Raja were up for release, their back-to-back release dates meant that Sonakshi Sinha had to juggle the promotions of the two films.
Looks like the actress is in a fix again. Action Jackson, her film with Ajay Devgn, and Holiday, with Akshay Kumar, are both releasing on June 6. After the release of Aamir Khan starrer, P.K., was pushed to December, producers of both her films are now eyeing the same release date.
Dividing time between the promotional activities for these two upcoming films will prove to be quite a task for Sonakshi and it is likely that she will have to choose one over the other like she did the last time. It was said that she had promoted Prabhu Dheva’s R...Rajkumar with Shahid Kapoor more aggressively (due to her rapport with them) than Tigmanshu Dhulia’s film, Bullett Raja, which had Saif Ali Khan as her co-star.
This time around, sources state that it will be a tough call. On one hand, Action Jackson is directed by Prabhu Deva, whom she calls her favourite director, while AR Murugadoss’s Holiday stars Akshay Kumar, whom she considers to be her lucky mascot.
Says a source, “The last time it so happened that the release date for R...Rajkumar was declared in advance and her dates were locked for its promotions. At that time, Bullett Raja was slated for a September release. But when the date was shifted to November, it upset her schedule and accommodating dates for both the films proved to be quite difficult.”
This time too, the actress doesn’t want to pick one film over the other. “But it will be undoubtedly be difficult for her to promote the two films and come up with an excuse for choosing one over the other,” adds the source.
It remains to be seen who will win this round: Prabhu Deva and Devgn or Akki.
