Looks like the curse of ‘Padmavati’ aka ‘Padmaavat’ has caught on with Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘PadMan’. As per the sources, the movie has been postponed from its originally intended release date, i.e. January 25, and will now hit the screens on February 9.

Well, this one is quite something as the date already has two releases lined up; Sidharth Malhotra-starrer ‘Aiyaary’, which itself had been postponed from January 26 to avoid the clash with ‘PadMan’. Looks like some things are inevitable. Will ‘Aiyaary’ postpone its date again? It will have to be seen. Apart from it, Luv Ranjan’s ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ is also going to release on February 9.

This one will be quite a blow to Akshay Kumar’s fans who were waiting for the movie because of its unique content and social value. Whether the makers have postponed it to avoid clash with ‘Padmaavat’ or to escape the wrath of fringe elements who are already angered by SC’s decision to release Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus, we don’t know. But looks like the makers are playing it safe.

Will ‘PadMan’ win the hearts even when it comes at a later date? We will find out on February 9. The movie also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in pivotal roles, and has been helmed by R Balki.
