Ending speculations about a plausible year-end clash at the box-office, Akshay Kumar and the makers of Bachchan Pandey have now shifted the release date of their film, upon Aamir Khan's request.
Aamir's ambitious film Laal Singh Chaddha will now have a solo release on Christmas this year, whereas Bachchan Pandey will hit the theaters on January 22, 2021.

"Sometimes, all it takes is one conversation," he wrote.
Soon after, Akshay posted a look from his film and announced the new release date, writing, "Anytime Aamir, we're all friends here."
Anytime @aamir_khan , we’re all friends here 🙃 Presenting - new look, new release date. Coming on 22nd January, 2021. In and as #BachchanPandey! #SajidNadiadwala @farhad_samji @kritisanon https://t.co/Y75p0bQmaF pic.twitter.com/orZPR6NZYM— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) January 27, 2020
Meanwhile, this is not the first time that Akshay has agreed to change his film's release date to avoid a box-office clash.
Last year too, Akshay and director Rohit Shetty rescheduled the release date of the film Sooryavanshi from May 2020 [Eid] to March 2020, to avoid a clash with Salman Khan's planned project Inshallah.
However, with Salman opting out, Inshallah was eventually shelved.
Coming to Bachchan Pandey, the film will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under his famed production banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, and directed by Farhad Samji (Housefull 4).
It is a Hindi remake of 2014 Tamil-language film Veeram, which follows the story of a villager taking down the enemies of his fiancee's family.
The film also stars Akshay's Housefull 4 co-star Kriti Sanon.
On the other hand, Aamir's film Laal Singh Chaddha is an official Hindi remake of Robert Zemeckis's multiple Oscar award-winning movie Forrest Gump (1994).
Laal Singh has been adapted by Atul Kulkarni and directed by Advait Chandan (Secret Superstar).
The film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Pankaj Tripathi, and Mona Singh.
It has been filmed across locations such as Chandigarh, Jaisalmer, Kolkata, Himachal Pradesh.
