Finally Padmavati has got a nod from the censor board and will be releasing on January 25 with a cropped name. What was to be released as ‘Padmavati’ will now release as ‘Padmavat’ as the censor board’a scissor has run on the movies name this time.
Super Release, Super Competition
Now a 25 January release for Padmavat would mean that the lavish account of history would be clashing with Akshay Kumar’s Padman which will release on the same date. Now this makes it an enticing tussle at the box office with two much awaited flicks coming together.
While Padmavat seems impressive already given the lavish trailer and the controversies that surrounded it, Padman too seems like a must watch for it’s a movie on an important social cause. Fans would neither want to miss Akshay nor would they want to miss out on Deepika and Ranveer in what may well be their best roles ever.
Akshay gives an epic reply to a journalist
Now when both of these big films will hit the box office together,
A journalist went about asking Akshay Kumar if Padmavat will affect the box office collections of Akshay’s Padman. In what was an epic reply by Akshay Kumar, the star is winning all the respect and the love.
Akshay said, “It’s not about the competition, it’s a big day, a big week so all the films can come. Both the films can release on that day”
Akshay also clarified that there are no issues between the makers of Padman and Padmavat even though the release of Padmavat being scheduled for 25 January was a last minute plan.
Last year too the same date saw a major clash with Raees and Kabil hitting the silver screen on 25th January.
Which one among Padman and Padmavat will you go for first?
