Not two, but three films, Akshay Kumar’s ‘Bachchan Pandey’, Aamir Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chadha’ and Ranbir Kapoor-Ajay Devgn’s next with Luv Ranjan are all set to release on Christmas 2020. However, speaking about the clash between 'Bachchan Pandey' and 'Laal Singh Chaddha', Akshay Kumar stated that that there are fifty-two Fridays and even fewer holiday weekends and that the industry makes over 200 Hindi films a year, and that the fraternity should be happy that there are two big releases that week.

All three films have major reasons to draw footfalls. Akshay’s look with the moustache, lungi and gold chains and the quirky title makes this Farhad Samji directorial interesting. On the other hand, Aamir will be seen on the big screen after a gap of two years since ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ in ‘Laal Singh Chadha’. The fact that it is the remake of the iconic ‘Forrest Gump’ and also brings about the reunion of the actor with ‘3 Idiots’ co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan makes it another major factor. 


The film is directed by Farhad Samji and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The first look of the film was also shared by production banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. "Bachchan Pandey" marks 10th collaboration between Sajid and Akshay. The duo have earlier worked together on films like "Waqt Humara Hai", "Hey Babyy", "Jann-E-Mann" and "Housefull" franchise among others.
