According to Hindustan Times, the Deepika Padukone starrer will be releasing on January 25, the same day as Akshay Kumar’s Padman.
However, the 50-year-old actor isn’t deterred by competition, “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.”
Even the producer of Padman seemed confident about the film’s release, “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).”
According to trade analyst Komal Nahta, Padmavat may just break all records.
“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. 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.”
The two films will battle it out at the box office on January 25.
