SRK Vs Akshay Kumar: Did Akshay go wrong?

Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express and Akshay Kumar's Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara were in news. However, SRK's film which released a week before stole the limelight and Khiladi Kumar's OUATIMD got a lukewarm response.

According to the industry reports and news doing rounds, Akshay's poor publicity of him film affected the box office.

Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express made a box office record of 33.12 cr on its opening day. OUATIMD earned 12 cr on its first day (15th August), but amusingly, SRK's Chennai Express earned 19.60 cr on its first day of second week (15th August).

There were constant comparisons between the King Khan and Khiladi Kumar making it big on silver screen. Director Milan too postponed his release date to avoid clash with the Badshah of Bollywood.

Shahrukh Khan was seen promoting his film even after it released and got a grand opening. King Khan made sure and promoted his flick to get the numbers at the box office.

According to reports, Akki was reluctant to promote the film and that's one reason which has affected the box office collection of his film. Comparing to his last few films like Khiladi 786, Oh My God and Rowdy Rathore, his contribution to promote OUATIMD was less.
Shahrukh visited different cities to make his fans aware about his entertaining masala films, while Akshay was not seen doing city tours for his film.

Why Akshay didn't promote the film is better known to him. However, according to the box office records it's always the janta, who makes or breaks the film on a Friday!

If film-promotions were the reasons of movie being a hit or flop,then RA1 should've got the status even bigger than ATBBLOL

Promoting or not wouldn't have made a difference. Sharukh is the biggest star in Bollywood.  Going against him on EID was suicide for any actor out there.  Only one that could maybe have challenged him would have to be Salman Khan. Even then the King would have prevailed.

shahrukh is not only bigger star, he is way too better businessman than than industry combined together. also he was paired against dp, 1st time after oso, who is again more popular than sonakshi. n ouatimd music was bad...more bad than ce.

Akshay didn't screw up. Ekta did. Should've never postponed the film. They shud've come at Eid with a bang. WOM wouldn't have mattered. Screen count would've been a bit less but the holiday factor would've more than made up for it. Most importantly, CE wouldn't have gained the momentum that it had when OUATIMD released. Just like SOS which was trashed left right and centre and still managed to collect just as much as JTHJ, OUATIMD would've fared the same. Should've learnt something from YPD2 earlier this year, whose makers made the same mistake releasing it a week after YJHD. Releasing a film 6 days after another that's on a dream run was a death wish and that's exactly what happened. RIP
