The release of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed Padmavati was halted, delayed and postponed. All due to the storm of protests and threats against the film, film’s director and its cast members that erupted across the nation.
So, amidst these controversies the makers of the film, Viacom 18 pushed the release of Padmavati till matters were solved.
And now we hear that the film which was initially scheduled to hit screens on December 1, will release in January 2018. And the date being selected is apparently the same as Akshay Kumar’s release date for his film Padman, which will hit screens on January 26.
Though an official announcement is yet to be made, internal sources at the production house stated that January 26 has been locked as the unofficial release date.
Now two biggies on the same date, what do you think will happen? Whether the makers of Padmavati announce Jan 26 as the film’s release date, or will they reschedule it. And if Padmavati does release on 26th Jan, will Akshay Kumar’s Padman release simultaneously or will the film be rescheduled?
Whatever might be the case, it will good to see two huge films releasing on the same date, since it’s a holiday, people will have oodles of entertainment to choose from.
