PadMan To Release On February 9: Requested Akshay Kumar To Move Date, Says Sanjay Leela Bhansali

A major clash at the box office has now been averted after Akshay Kumar announced that PadMan will release on February 9, instead of January 25.

In a joint press conference held by Akshay Kumar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the Padmaavat director said, “We requested Akshay if he can shift the film because he is such a big star and our troubles might have increased if we would have released the film together. He agreed and will be grateful to him for a lifetime.”

While Akshay Kumar said, “It is essential for them to release it as quickly as possible. The point is not about fighting or clashing… But at the moment, the stake of their film is much more higher than mine.”

Padmaavat will now release on January 25 and PadMan will release along with Aiyaary on February 9. Incidentally, the makers of Aiyaary are in a quandary, as they had moved their release date from January 26 to February 9 to avoid clash with PadMan.
