Akshay Kumar postpones film release for 'Padmaavat'

Sunday, 21 Jan, 2018

Padmaavat makers have released a new version of their film's song Ghoomar, in which Deepika Padukone's midriff has been covered through special effects and the portion between her ghaghra-choli has now been covered with a computerised cloth. I have done a lot of films with him.

Ranveer tweeted, "Big Man with a Big Heart!" State governments that have banned the film should also take into account that the film industry comprises workers at the grass-root level whose livelihood depends on the release of films. When asked why SLB shouldn't move his release date, Akshay quipped, "It's very essential for them to release it as quickly as possible". Can't wait to see "PadMan".

Well, we could clearly understand what really frightened Akshay about the idea of clashing with Padmaavat, since, apart from the fact that he is acting in the film, he's also its producer.

In the last few weeks, our timelines have been full of articles and news about Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat.

The two movies were set to share the same release date earlier, but speaking to the press, Akshay revealed that PadMan is being postponed at the request of Mr Bhansali, whose film has suffered months of violent protests. But Akshay Sir agreed immediately. Akshay is aware of all the situations we have been through. The film, targeted by right-wing groups ever since the release of its trailer, is finally ready for release on January 25. The film is presented by Columbia Pictures, Hope Productions, KriArj Entertainment and Mrs Funnybones Movies. "Any which way, it will get more theatres and more shows as well as a bigger audience at least initially".

The initial ban of Padmaavat has greatly affected the Bollywood release calender as several other films including Anushka Sharma's Pari and Siddharth Malhotra's Aiyari were also shifted. "The makers made a decision to release the film on January 25, but it was clashing with Akshay Kumar's movie 'PadMan" and we requested him to move the release date of his film ahead and he agreed.

PadMan is the life story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who came up with a machine for manufacturing sanitary napkins in rural India.
