For now, die-hard fans of Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s films can be in for a good news., as their wait might finally be over. As per a report, the magnum opus Padmavat is going to release on January 25 clashing with Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man at the box office.
Per sources, the producers are working round the clock to release it on that date. However, Mr Bhansali refused to comment on the matter.
Akshay when asked about Padmavat clashing with Pad Man said he was totally clueless about the development, “I am clueless what is happening… with clash. I have no idea about it. Even we have heard about it. All we know is ‘Padman’ is releasing on January 25.”
Producer Prerna Arora of Kriraj Entertainmnet for Padman said, “Padmavati is a very important film. It’s a beautiful film and it should release soon. I am also looking forward to see it. It depends on Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions to decide on the date.”
Also, the buzz is that Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary might be pushed to February 9 to avoid this clash.
So, it looks like it’s going to be Padman v/s Padmavat. We guess the makers of Padman preponed their release by just a day for this very reason, else their prior release on 26th might have been shaken by Padmavati’s fever a day before.
