It's all happening out there, and like on most occasions, this time too we bring it to you FIRST. There are mild tremors in the KriArj Entertainment office, as both their upcoming films Padman and Pari might meet with a giant called Padmavati. Now Padman and Pari both are very promising films in content and execution, and who wants to share the booty?
Akshay Kumar In Padman
So, for all you know, Akshay Kumar starrer Padman and Anushka Sharma starrer Pari might not release onJanuary 26 and February 9, respectively.
Anushka Sharma In Pari
You see, Viacom (producers of Padmavati) officials have had long meetings yesterday, toying with the idea of releasing Padmavati on January 26- the date set for Padman. Now if Padmavati hits theatres on Republic Day, it would not make commercial sense to release Padman on the same day and who knows, even Pari for that matter after 14 days.

A source says, "Of course, there is no guarantee that Padmavati will take the nation by storm- but any good businessman would not like to start his film on a warring note."

Adds the source, "For all you know, Viacom might not go ahead with Padmavati on January 26 or February 9- and they might stick to their original plan of releasing it on Valentine's, which they had decided upon--- when the film ran into trouble with the Karni Sena and hence did not see the light of day on its scheduled date December 1." SpotboyE.com had brought you the Valentine's plan story on November 19.

Phew! Padmavati's delay upset the apple-cart of many filmmakers in the industry, who quickly distanced themselves from it. And now, Padmavati's Jan 26/Feb 9 date is ready to topple the set dates of many other movies lined-up in 2018- Manoj Bajpayee & Sidharth Malthotra starrer Aiyaary (set for Jan 26) for one, surely.
