Padmavat’s official release date is out now and it is 25 January, which makes the clash with Padman inevitable. Padmavat is one of the most hyped film of all time and Padman has Akshay Kumar’s stardom at sake. Akshay is experiencing the golden time of his career right now with none of his films collecting less than a 100 crores and also critical acclaim. Padmavat has a brilliant trailer and 2 months of national controversy behind it. All of trade is just waiting for Padmavat to release as it would have cured the money drought on box office on 1st December 2017.
Now that box office is stabilized with the release of Tiger Zinda Hai, distributors and exhibitors can focus on giving right number of screens to both Padman and Padmavat with respect to their budget. Padmavat certainly has hype and budget enough to grab each and every screen in North of India and film will run housefull for 3 days atleast. Padmavat was like a sword hanging on the Indian box office and unfortunately for Akshay it ended up falling on Padman. To avoid the clash with Padmavat, Aiyaary starring Siddharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee shifted it’s release date to 9 February.
Aiyaary will now clash with Anushka Sharma’s Pari and Luv Ranjan’s Sweety ke Titu ki Sweety. The unabashed release of Padmavat has caused a stir on Indian box office and it won’t come as a surprise if one of the films from 9th February shift it’s release date to some other week. Padmavat was to release on 1st December 2017, which shifted the release date of John Abrahm’s Parmaanu and Excel entertainment’s Fukrey returns on 15 December. Parmaanu does not have a release date now and in a hurry they released Fukrey Returns on 8 December. The time bomb named Padmavt will now explode with Padman and causalities are bound to happen.
