Bas kar pagle ab rulayega kya Get ready with your popcorn guys, entertaining weekend ahead https://t.co/xoKifZ06Os— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 8, 2016
Good advice from Akshay there - grab the popcorn because if anybody wins here, it is the movie-goer.
Hrithik has been generous with his praise of Rustom. Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna responded to his tweet admiring the trailer of Rustom in July with a note saying she was rooting for both movies.
@iHrithik want both the movies to do well and we can celebrate together my friend :)— Twinkle Khanna (@mrsfunnybones) June 30, 2016
Mohenjo Daro and Rustom, both historicals, release together on Friday.
The first, directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, is set in the Ancient Indus Valley and co-stars newcomer Pooja Hegde, Kabir Bedi and Arunoday Singh. Rustom is based on the real life Nanavati case that led to the scrapping of India's jury system and also stars Ileana D'Cruz and Esha Gupta.
