'Baaghi 3' suffers in Akshay Kumar & Salman Khan's box office 'war' ahead of Eid clash?

A massive clash is scheduled to take place at the box office with Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb and Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai gearing up for an Eid release. While it is a given that the business between the two films will be divided, it seems that the jostle for screens has already started. And not just the two films, but another film is being dragged into the ‘war’, if reports are to be believed.

A veteran trade analyst-critic Komal Nahta and some more names claimed that SS Exhibitors did not accede to Fox Star Studios’ offer that they will give them Baaghi 3 to screen, only if they promise to screen Laxmmi Bomb
