Akshay Kumar Steals A March Over Sidharth Malhotra & Manoj Bajpayee

Everything is fair in love and war. Let’s not blame Kumar for being a shrewd businessman

Akshay Kumar has put his nose in the front of the race. Pad Man will now hit cinemas a day before its scheduled release date. Akshay Kumar shared the news on his Twitter handle... 

Akshay Kumar’s Padman and Sidharth Malhotra-Manoj Bajpayee starrer Aiyaary were earlier set for a box-office clash, with both films releasing on January 26.

That clash has been averted, if only by a day.

Bringing the release of Pad Man, produced by KriArj Entertainment and Akshay Kumar, ahead by a day is a clever move, and will help Akshay to cash-in on Thursday collections. It will give him a 24-hr clear window over Aiyaary.

Last year, same time, we saw something similar, when Raees and Kaabil played box-office musical chairs.

Shah Rukh had shifted Raees ahead by a day, which in turn led Rakesh Roshan to push up the release date of his Kaabil.

Will Pad Man-Aiyaary war follow the same course? God forbid if Padmavati releases on Jan 26, phir toh pata nahi kya hoga?
