AKSHAY KUMAR NOT BOTHERED WITH CLASH OF PADMAN AND PADMAVAT
Akshay Kumar who will be now seen in PadMan with Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor is not bothered with the clash of his feature film with Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh starrer Padmavat. Padmavat, which missed its December 1 release date due to controversy over its plot, has been finally given a go ahead by the censor board. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) recently gave U/A certification along with some modifications and suggested to change its title to Padmavat from Padmavati.
Asked about his reaction on the clash of the two films, Akshay said, “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 (makers) want, and I am happy for them.”
Akshay’s Padman co-star, Sonam Kapoor also said, “There is a need for competition when it comes to films and (it is ) high time that the film releases. Good cinema is good cinema, I don’t believe in competition.
“And honestly, I am just happy that the film is releasing, more than anything else, and I hope the film does well. I am pretty sure that there is no official statement from the production house of the film (Padmavat) release.”, she added.
Well, it’s a good gesture by Akshay and team of PadMan to speak up on such matter!
