After many speculations, controversy and buzz, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati or rather ‘Padmavat’ is ready to hit the silver screen and right from the editorial table it is up for a major clash with Akshay Kumar’s much talked about biographical movie ‘Padman’.
Yes, you have read it right. Padmavat starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh has been evoking controversy across the country ever since the first song of the movie has been released. Rajpur households, political parties and Karni groups demanded a ban on the movie as they claimed that the movie is an insult to the entire clan and the women of their household. There have been claims that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has went ahead to glorify Allauddin Khilji more than the Rajput queen and the king. However after stalling the release of the movie from 1st December, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has given a clean chit to the movie, after some edits and a slight alteration in the name and this mega period film by Bhansali is slated to be released on 25th January 2018, making the best use of the long weekend.
Even though the release of Padmavat has brought smiles to its fan, there is much to worry about, when it comes to the Akshay Kumar fans, since both the films will be releasing around the same time. Previously we have seen Akshay Kumar emerging as the winner when Rustom clashed with Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjodaro, but when it comes to the clash of Padmavat and Padman, we sure are keeping our fingers crossed, for we all want to witness both.
