Padmaavat slows down with the release of Padman.
Padman and Padmaavat were scheduled to release together, however as Sanjay Leela Bhansali requested for a date change and a solo release to Akshay Kumar, he without any objection agreed to change the release date inspite of strong promotions to 9th February 2018 giving Padmaavat two clear solo weeks to recover its cost. Padmaavat was a high budget film of 180 crores and had already faced a lot of opposition from the Karni Sena on the grounds of Defaming of Rajputana Shaan. However after watching the movie the Karni Sena also realised that the movie only glorifies Rajputana Shaan and removed their opposition.
The star cast of Padmaavat Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor have recieved a lot of praise from the audiences.
