Averting clash between the two biggest Bollywood releases- Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha & Akshay Kumar's Bachchan Pandey seems like 2020 is not going to end in a war. Just a few minutes back, Aamir Khan informed audiences that 'on his request' producer Sajid Nadiadwala and Akshay Kumar agreed to switch the release dates. Now responding to the Thugs of Hindostan actor, Kumar shared a new deadly look and announced that his period drama is all set to hit the ticketing counters on January 2021.

Kumar's tweet comes minutes after Aamir Khan informed social media users that makers of Laal Singh Chaddha and Bachchan Pandey have averted a clash at the Box Office. Thanking his 'friends', Khan expressed his gratitude to the entire Bachchan Pandey team for moving the release date of the film, at his request.
Sometimes all it takes is one conversation. Thank you to my friends @akshaykumar & Sajid Nadiadwala for their warm gesture of moving the release date of their film Bachchan Pandey at my request. I wish them the very best for their film. Looking forward to it.— Aamir Khan (@aamir_khan) January 27, 2020
