Akshay and Bhansali jointly announced this at a hurriedly-convened media interaction on Friday evening. Incidentally, the makers of Aiyaary are in a quandary, as they had moved their release date from January 26 to February 9 to avoid clash with PadMan. "I think for the gesture that Akshay has made, all of us should give him a big hand", said Bhansali.
Akshay said that the call was taken jointly by the makers and the distributors in interest of the industry.
Over the past few days, the film fraternity and the audience has been wondering the fate of Padmaavat and Padman, both of which were slated to release on January 25. DNA After Hours was first to report that Bhansali has reached out to Akshay so that his film can be postponed and Padmavaat gets a solo release. "Padmaavat will be a solo release on January 25". So it's back to square one as originally, Pad Man and Aiyaary were suppose to clash at the box office during the Republic Day weekend.
Mourinho 'really happy' with Luke Shaw
After being plagued by fitness problems, Shaw didn't appear in the Premier League for the first time this season until 13th December.
Padman stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role along with Radhika Apte. "Every film has the right to release whenever they want, and I am happy for them".
PadMan stars Akshay Kumar as A Muruganantham, inventor of a low cost sanitary napkin machine. Now since Padman is a big film under it's own estimation with an nearly star like Akshay Kumar, Sonu Ke Tittu Ki Sweety might have to move from it's release date giving space to Aiyaary and Padman in order to finally have a clash. Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna produces while the film is directed by R Balki.
Bhansali's film has received clearance from the Supreme Court after having been opposed by the fringe group, Rajput Karni Sena.
