Now, reportedly, the makers of Akshay Kumar's Laxmmi Bomb are eyeing Independence Day to release the film. The makers are yet to make an official announcement on the same, but if this is true, it means Gunjan Saxena will clash with Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani-starrer Laxmmi Bomb during the Independence Day week.
Well, if it were a clash at the box office, it would have been pretty interesting to see the number game. As both the films are releasing on two different OTT platforms, audiences have the power to binge-watch both. What say?
