Ajay Devgn's Shivaay and Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil are slated to clash at the box office on October 28 but another Hollywood release is likely to give a tough competition to both the films.
Tom Cruise-starrer Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (Jack Reacher 2) is set for release in India on October 21, just a week before Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil hit the screens. The Indian distributors of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back are said to be planning a huge release of the movie in India.
While Shivaay is touted to have never-seen-before kind of action sequences, Tom Cruise is already known for his action extravaganza.
"A film starring Tom Cruise is not a film, it's an event. Viacom 18 has dubbed the film in several Indian language and will be releasing it in several Indian languages along with the original English version. The action sequences in the film are expected to be daring even by Cruise's standards. They are bound to give Shivaay the shivers," SKJ Bollywood News quoted a source as saying.
Of late, Hollywood films have been doing well at the Indian box office and Tom Cruise has always been popular with viewers here. Now it looks like the box office fight between Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will get more interesting with the release of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
Shivaay features Ajay, along with Sayyeshaa Saigal and Erika Kaar. On the other hand, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil stars Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan. Both the films will hit the screens on October 28.
