The two films, which were set to clash next week at the box office, has now resulted in "PadMan" being delayed until 9th February 2018, while "Padmaavat" will have a solo release on 25th January 2018. "See, we are one family and I can understand he has gone through a lot, he has put a lot of money, the studio people have put a lot of money", Akshay told media persons here.

"What Akshay sir did on Friday evening is unheard of".

Superstar Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan which was supposed to release on January 25 has now been postponed to February 9. Shahid and Deepika looked drop dead gorgeous and the new pair was simply enchanting and we were mesmerized by beauty of Deepika and the grandeur of the film.

Prernaa also added this decision should be used as an example and other filmmakers should learn from this. "His gesture will be remembered for a very long time", she said. The film will once again clash with Neeraj Pandey's "Aiyaary".

Protests against Padmaavat, which was earlier titled Padmavati piled up when the Ghoomar song was criticised, saying that Rajput queens never danced before anybody. The group accuses Bhansali's film of distorting historical facts and hurting the sentiments of the community.

Despite the clearance by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), the ban was imposed by Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Gujarat- all ruled by the BJP. However, Padmaavat is one of the biggest releases of the year, also releasing in regional languages like Tamil and Telugu, along with in 3D and IMAX 3D. Had it been released with PadMan, the loss might have been greater. The film also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in main roles.

Directed by R. Balki, Padman is a biographical take on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a Tamil Nadu-based social activist who revolutionized the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-priced sanitary napkin machine.
