Akki denies competition with Padmavat


Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream film ‘Padmavat’ has finally got a release date but not without a struggle at the box office. It will be ‘PadMan’ versus ‘Padmavat’ on January 25 and here’s what Akshay Kumar, who stars in ‘PadMan’, has to say, “There is no competition, it is a big day and a long weekend. So both the films can release. Every film has the right to release whenever it wants to.” Interestingly, moving out of the league is Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee’s patriotic drama ‘Aiyaary’, which has shifted its release from the Republic Day to February 9.
