Who can forget when Akshay Kumar made a last-minute change and postponed the release of ‘PadMan’ for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’? In true SLB style, the director announced that Akki’s social drama would be postponed by two weeks to let his film enjoy a solo release. “Padmaavat has been made after facing a lot of difficulties. We decided to release the film on January 25, but it was clashing with Akshay Kumar’s movie ‘PadMan’ and we requested him to move the release date of his film ahead and he agreed. I will always be grateful to him,” Bhansali said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Akshay gave a humble reply saying, “His (Bhansali) need is more for this date than mine.”
