Did Team Akshay Kumar just got a big one over Team Hrithik?
Both are biggies, and could eat into each other’s business, especially during the opening weekend. However, Team Rustom just got a big ally in the form of the king of box office, Mr Sultan himself!
Salman Khan had taken on to Twitter to show his love for Akshay Kumar’s film, with this short and sweet video,

Salman Khan has been showering his admiration for Akshay Kumar in the past few days, even calling him the real Sultan of Bollywood. They have acted together in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, while Salman also made cameos in Akshay Kumar’s Tees Maar Khan and Fugly.
We also know Salman isn’t too fond of Hrithik after the former trolled Guzaarish and said not even a fly would watch the film. They also purposefully avoided each other at IIFA 2016 held in Madrid.
It’s also interesting to note that Salman Khan himself avoided a clash with none other that Shah Rukh Khah, when Raees was supposed to be released with Sultan. Now Raees has been postponed to release next January and is now clashing with Kaabil (poor Hrithik!).
With regards to the current clash, Akshay Kumar had actually downplayed the contest during a recent press interaction where he said that there have been instances when two films have benefitted from a clash. Let’s hope his optimism stays true for both the films.
Meanwhile what do you think about Salman’s gesture for Akshay?
