Will it be Akshay Kumar’s Padman vs Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati on Republic Day 2018 – Here is the good news for the fans Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor as their much awaited and talked about movie Padmavati has finally got a new release date, according to the sources.
The Producers of the controversial film, Padmavati have zeroed it on 25th/ 26th January 2018 as the release date of their film after getting censor certificate last week. The film which was originally scheduled for a December 1 release last year might be in cinemas after 2 months of delay.
This might be a good news for the fans who are eagerly waiting for Padmavati to release but it is a bad news for the industry as there are already two films lined up for that date. Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor’s Padman and Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary are also scheduled to release on 26th January 2018.
It seems the makers of Padman got the indication from the trade that Padmavati might also be targeting the same date which resulted in them preponing their film by a day to 25th January. What will happen with Aiyaary it remains to be seen but it will most probably move to its previously announced release date of 9th February.
With Viacom 18 all set to announce the release date officially it remains to be seen if the 1st month of the year will see a major clash or will it be avoided?
