Akshay Kumar starrer biographical film Pad Man will now be released on February 9. It was scheduled to be released on 25 January but it was postponed on the personal request of Bhansali.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is facing criticism and resistance by various social groups especially the Karni Sena ever since his film Padmaavat a.k.a. Padmavati came on the floor. But now things seem to be working in favor makers of Padmaavat especially Bhansali.
Note: Bhansali personally thanked Akshay Kumar for averting clash of their movies
It was releasing on 26th January on the Republic Day but the date was changed to 25th Jan to avoid clash with Aiyaary featuring Manoj Bajpayee and Rakul Preet Singh. And now Akshay Kumar has extended the release to 9 Feb. Padmaavat is provided full advantage of Republic Day holidays starting on Thursday 25 Jan.
Akshay Kumar has joined Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his fight with the groups protesting release of Padmaavat. Now that the Supreme Court has given green signal to Padmaavat, Bhansali isn’t interested in waiting for a single day. Akshay Kumar supported Bhansli saying that Padmaavat needs a favor and that the Bollywood fraternity should stand united against the resistance from groups with personal agenda.
Could be PadMan be rescheduled?
Speculations are rife regarding rescheduling of Pad Man as the 9 February is already booked for Aiyaary and it is learnt that Manoj Bajpayee, the lead actor of Aiyarry, is quite unhappy with Akshay Kumar choosing February 9 for Pad Man. The movie Aiyaary has been in the eye of storm since beginning. First it was clashing with 2.0 that is also an Akshay Kumar movie and now it’s Akshay again.
The team Aiyaari that involves Manoj Bajpayee and Sidharth Malhotra isn’t happy with Akshay Kumar as it was Aiyarri that paved way for smooth release of Pad Man on Republic Day. Now the ball is in the court of Aiyaari but they’ve yet to open their cards.
Social media buzz
As soon as the news of Pad Man releasing on 9 February broke, Aiyaari supports came out in open and demanded the movie be released on its schedule day that is Republic Day. Sidharth even tweeted that Aiyaari was made to be released on 26 January and not on any other day.
It has become Akshay Kumar v/s Manoj Bajpayee on Twitter but it seems that Aiyaari fans are quite worried about the clash.
