Prernaa Arora, the co-producer of Bollywood movie Padman, has haled Akshay Kumar’s decision to defer the film’s release.


On Friday evening, Akshay Kumar, together with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, announced the postponement of Padman, so that Bhansali’s Padmaavat can get a solo release.

Co-producer hails Akshay's decision to defer 'Pad Man' release
To Postpone Padman Was A Very Unusual Request By Sanjay Leela Bhansali Says Prernaa Arora

“Akshay’s entire team is with him on this decision,” his co-producer Prernaa Arora of Kriarj Films said.

“What Akshay Sir did on Friday evening is unheard of. Just a week before our film’s release, without any prior intimation, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, a legend in his own right, came to Akshay requesting that we postpone Padman,” she said.


“It takes a lot of humility for a man of Bhansali’s stature to come forward with such a request. It takes an equally great artiste to agree to such a startling request,” Arora said.

“It was a very unusual request considering we were days away from release. But Akshay agreed immediately. It says a lot about his generous heart,” she added.

Prernaa also scoffs at filmmakers and producers who deliberately pitch their films against one another.

“They should learn from this experience. By moving ahead by two weeks at the last minute, Akshay Sir has shown there can be solidarity in the film fraternity. His gesture will be remembered for a very long time,” she said.

The entire Padman team is with Akshay on this issue.

“We are all in agreement on Akshay Sir’s decision. There are so many big stars who deliberately look for box office clashes by pitching their films against other big films. Akshay Sir has shown the way to a peaceful co-existence in the film industry.”




  1. no scope for success. It will be folded up like JHMS. If he don’t postpone and want to face release with Padmawat, then PADMAN will be at the corner. Good step to postpone the release.

    • bullshit dude , i think padman will definitely able to eat at least 10 cr a day ,then also .. u cant ignore a content base film , earlier we had saw #secret #superstar has done . so you cant ignore that . padmavaat make with a budget of almost 190 cr nearly ,so it needs most of a pie were asa padman need just 30 cr to recover .

    • Better not speak regarding this. PADMAN will be a big hit since it is releasing in Valentine”s day and getting holi holiday and women”s day too.

  2. And what about the clash of other movies which released on 9th February, Aiyyari already shifted that release date previously. Is this not loss of their business? maybe bhansali pay lot of money of PADMAN producers.
