Padman release postponed to avoid clash with Padmaavat

Mumbai: Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has postponed the release date of his much-awaited film Padman to avoid a box office clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial film Padmaavat.

Padman directed by R Balki was supposed to release on 25 January, but now it will arrive in theatres on 9 February.

Padmaavat makers announced the release date of the film earlier this month after they received the clearance from the censor board.

The film had to miss its scheduled release of 1 December, as it got mired in controversy after various Rajput groups, including Rajput Karni Sena, objected to the content of the film and the portrayal of queen Padmavati.

Padman release postponed to 9 February. Padmaavat will be a solo release on 25 January, trade analyst Komal Nahata said in a tweet.

Padman is based on the life of Tamil Nadu based social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, who created affordable sanitary napkins in rural India.

Padman will now have a box office clash with Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary.
