Holidays are always a lucrative period for films. And films try to score more with national holidays.
Last year, Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees and Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil did great business on Republic Day holiday and in 2016, it was Akshay Kumar-starrer Airlift that scored.
Now in 2018, it’s Akshay again with Pad Man starring Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.
But the film was to release on Friday, January 26, now the makers have announced that the film will arrive in theatres a day earlier, that is, on January 25.
Both Twinkle and Akshay posted the news on Instagram:
Incidentally, last year too, Raees and Kaabil released a day before Republic Day though they had initially announced that their respective films will have a release on January 26. It was the makers of Kaabil who at first unveiled that their film will have a release from January 25 evening. Raees makers then said that their film will shows from the morning of January 25. Not wanting to be left behind, the makers of Kaabil also decided to have a full-fledged release from January 25.
