It’s Confirmed: Padmavati To Release On January 25

It’s all systems go for the beleaguered epic Padmavati. Yes,  a release  date has finally been locked in, and  it’s  January 25th the  coveted Republic Day weekend when  Akshay Kumar’s  R Balki starrer Pad Man , not to mention Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary were already  scheduled.

In fact when rumours  of  a January 25 release began doing  the   rounds  for Padmavati Akshay  Kumar swiftly rescheduled Pad Man from January 26 to January  25.

Many in the film trade dismissed the Jan.25 release date  for Padmavati as purely  conjectural.

In fact a source very closely connected with Pad Man still can’t believe Padmavati is jumping the  queue to  make it for Republic Day.

“It’s insanity. We  announced the release date for Pad Man six month ago. Now for them to jump in  with Padmavati at  this late  hour is absurd. I  am still hoping they will change their   mind and release later.”

However Padmavati is  now confirmed  for  January  25.

A source very close  to the  film says, “It’s January  25 for us. We’ve waited too long. We  can’t wait any more. Huge financial stakes are involved.”

 Trade  pundits are shocked at the sudden turn of  events  at  theboxoffice.

Says Atul Mohan, “No doubt if this happens and Padmavat or Padmavati actually releases on January 25, then the party plans of Pad Man and Aiyaary will be washed out. The hype and curiosity surrounding Padmavati is so huge that I doubt anybody would try to take a chance. But looking at the technical part both Pad Man and Aiyaary have already started blocking and securing single screens for 2 weeks at least. That would mean lesser screens for Padmavati and battle begins at plexes for showcasing.”
