Padmavati to release on Republic Day 2018?

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati was postponed after the violent protests. The new release date of the film has not been announced yet, however, the makers are eyeing the Republic Day weekend for Padmavati.

Reportedly the producers have decided to wait until the Gujarat elections. “We won’t even announce a date until the elections,” asserts a source from the team of Padmavati. Apparently, the ‘instruction’ to hold the release till the crucial elections have come from the ruling party’s high command.

“Well, if you insist on knowing, we are looking at early January. If you look at the January schedule, there’s only one major release, and that’s Padman. So January looks like a good time to release Padmavati. We plan to have selected screenings, as soon as the CBFC certifies the film,” the source adds. In fact, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures also intends to invite the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to watch the film.

If it happens then there will be a clash on Republic Day between Akshay Kumar’s Padman, Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaari and Padmavati.

          Padmavati shud not clash with Padman coz padmavati will b denting it’s own collections huge budget biggie n padman won’t b losing anything due to its niche genre……
          Anyways I pray both shud get solo release n become Massive success….

        • Finally you accept that 2.0 belongs to akki.
          that a great news from akki haters.
          thanks bro

      • Finally some good news about padmavati. I Think it will release on first week of january. But question is will it get a clearence!

        • Padmavati is a big budget project and it needs a solo release to recover. Clash is not a wise decision. Loss of screens too. Lets see what happens. Lots of clashes in 2018

            padmavati shud not clash with Padman else it will dent its own collections coz Padman is a niche movie so it won’t be losing….on the other hand padmavati is a big budget movie so it needs solo release ………
            I wish both gets solo release ….

        Am wondering how you guys went to the conclusion that Padmaavati will clash on 26th jan? From the above comment by the source…they said that Jan has only 1 major release which is 26th so they are available dates for January…could be 1st week 2nd or ok lets even assume its clashing on the 3rd week but they did not say its 26th…they are still looking at various options so whats d point saying ots going to clash with 2movies? After all that happen you think it deserves a clash to regain its profit ? No doubt it will win clash over Padman in terms of numbers but its collection will be dented at the same time talk more of Another clash with #Sids next movie. Any which way am waiting for it!!

      Roric shut up..evn if padman is an outstanding film..if padmavati releases with it..padmavati will surley succeed and padman may also flop..mohenjodaro was a very bad is far more popular than akki

        @ceiling khan
        Yeah roric comment was idiotic
        But no one can stop padman to become hit.
        If padmavati is not mohenjodaro then padman is also not weekend film like dilwale.
        If they release padmavati solo, then it has everything to cross 200 crore but if they release with padman, then maximum limit for padmavati will be 150.

    • @Roric…. 😂 you are right, it should release on 1st jan so that it can affect TZH’s business or TZH will break each and every record of opening day, weekend, week and days…. 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 or it can also come close to Dangal a content film… 😂
