Akshay Kumar is acting in and producing a Hindi film titled Pad Man. The film is slated to release over the Republic Day weekend. However there was some confusion as Shankar’s 2.0 is also scheduled to release on January 25. Akshay plays the lead role alongside Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson in the film.

In a recent media interaction, he was asked if the two films will clash at the box office. Akshay has clarified that if Lyca productions decides to release the film on January 25 he will postpone the release of Padman. It would not make sense for two of his films to clash at the box office.

Though the release date of 2.0 has been long confirmed, speculations suggest that work on the film’s CGI is still underway and the team will not be able to make it to the finish line on time. There is a good chance that the film’s release will be pushed.
