In Bollywood, we often talk about big movies clashing and affecting each other’s business at the box-office — whether it has been Aamir Khan’s ‘Dil’, ‘Raja Hindustani’ and ‘Lagaan’ clashing with Sunny Deol’s ‘Ghayal’, ‘Ghatak’ and ‘Gadar’, Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Saawariya’ with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Om Shanti Om’, Ranveer Singh’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’ with SRK’s ‘Dilwale’, Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Mohenjo Daro’ with Akshay Kumar’s ‘Rustom’, or SRK’s ‘Raees’ clashing with Hrithik’s ‘Kaabil’ this week.
 
All these clashes have caught the industry’s attention, especially as big movies are said to suffer monetarily and eat into each other’s business when they release at closer dates. But a clash that has happened last week is unique because it has not happened in Bollywood, but in Hollywood. And strangely, it has happened between foreign movies of two Indians.
 
Just when Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone’s much-hyped action flick ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ released in Hollywood, Pennsylvania-based Indian director M Night Shyamalan’s horror movie ‘Split’ also released. The filmmaker is famous for his movies ‘Signs’, ‘The Sixth Sense’, ‘Unbreakable’, ‘The Village’, ‘After Earth’ and ‘The Last Airbender’. 
 
As per a report in Mashable, Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ has been doing double the amount of business than the Deepika starrer. Oops! “The Vin Diesel-led action movie nabbed an estimated $20 million domestically — it’s not a bad showing, but it’s far behind the $40.2 million domestic estimate for Split,” the website reports.
  
Coincidently, the male leads of both the movies James McAvoy of ‘Split’ and Vin Diesel of ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ are bald.
