After the trailer and two songs that was released months back, the makers refrained from promoting their film as they were busy fighting the ban imposed on the film in certain states.
The problem occurred when "Padmaavat" announced its release on January 25 in clash with "Pad Man", however Akshay Kumar amicably resolved the enigma by offering to postpone his movie till January 9. Akshay agreed to postpone release of the film so that Bhansali's film, that has been surrounded by controversies ever since its inception, can get a solo release. Their stake is much higher than mine.
The actor pushes his Pad Man to February 9, saying Padmaavat needs the Republic Day weekend more, Sanjay Leela Bhansali responds that he will be indebted to him for a lifetime.
"It's said that Akshay has a given a thought about the same and may consider Bhansali's request".
Like all Bhansali movie, this movie too showcases love story of the lead character that is of Deepika aka Rani Padmavati and Shahid aka Maharaja Rawal Ratan Singh for a change as Ranveer plays the vicious character of Khilji.

The second cheer burst out when the Catholic Republican representative for New Jersey said he believed prayer and fasting work. Wade Supreme Court decision has robbed over 50 million innocent babies of their right to life since its ruling in 1973.
The Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor-starrer has been caught in the eye of the storm since the announcement of the project. "But a gesture like the one Akshay Sir showed toward Mr Sanjay Leela Bhansali makes up for all the selfinterest that rules our entertainment industry". We chose to bring it out on January 25, but that date was already taken by Akshay's film.
On the other hand, PadMan, tells the story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man behind a low-priced machine for manufacturing sanitary napkins in rural India.
The initial ban of Padmaavat has greatly affected the Bollywood release calender as several other films including Anushka Sharma's Pari and Siddharth Malhotra's Aiyari were also shifted.
