The mega clash between akshay kumar’s "PadMan" and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s "padmaavat" will not happen. The release of "PadMan" has been postponed to February 9. Akshay revealed that the release of his new film has been postponed after a request from Mr. Bhansali.

Bhansali a.k.a. controversy

His latest venture Padmavati later renamed "Padmaavat" has been jinxed from its very inception.

The shooting schedules were interrupted by a section of the population in Rajasthan, Karni Sena who accused the filmmaker of contorting history and depicting Queen Padmavat in an undignified manner.

The film bore the brunt of Rajput fury but when everything settled down and the film was readied for release, it was banned in the BJP ruled states.

The producer had to seek the Supreme Court intervention to overturn the ban.

High stakes on 'Padmaavat'

However, the film release was clashing with another film, PadMan starring Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor, and Radhika Apte. However, Bhansali requested Akshay to postpone the release of his film which Khiladi Kumar readily accepted.

Speaking to media, the actor said that the stakes are higher here and the producer has weathered a lot of adversities, and it was necessary for the film to be released on the scheduled date.

"PadMan" is loosely based on the lives and ordeals of a social industrialist from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India who created the low-cost sanitary pad making machine.

Akshay Kumar plays the role of the legendary Arunachalam who was also nicknamed as “The Menstrual Man.”
