Jan 10, 2018
The box office is going to witness one of
the major clashes of 2018 on 25th January. As Padman and Padmavat get ready to
fight it out at the box office on January 25, Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary has decided to delay the release. The film
will now release on Feb 9. This is as big as it gets -- Akshay Kumar’s Padman is all set to clash with Deepika Padukone’s Padmavat over the Republic Day weekend.

“Both the films boast of solid storylines, so,
they will perform well. It’s a holiday weekend, and the audience will try to
catch them both,” trade analyst Komal Nahta told mid-day. Padmavat will enjoy a
historic start even if it releases on a Monday instead of a Friday since there
is immense curiosity about the film anyway,” he told the tabloid. Akshay
sounded optimistic about chances of Padman against Padmavat. “It is not about
competition. It is a very big day, a big week, so all the films can come, both
the films can release on that day. Every film has the right to release whenever
they want, and I am happy for them.” Padman producer Prerna Arora, too, sounded
pretty optimistic. “We are coming with Padman on January 25, we are not nervous
or worried about the clash. We are confident about our film. I think two big
films can come together. If the film is good it will do well commercially
irrespective of a clash. We are happy for Padmavat (release),” she said.
