Akshay Kumar seems to have his cards in place for the alleged clash between his home production, 'Padman' and Rajinikanth's 2.0, where he portrays a negative role. When Khiladi Kumar announced the dates for the release of 'Padman' produced by his wife, Twinkle Khanna, he had bamboozled his fans as Republic Day was supposed to observe a clash like never before, between the 'good' Akshay Kumar in 'Padman' and the 'evil' Akshay Kumar in 2.0. However, the star has put to rest all the rumours regarding the two releases.
Talking to a leading daily, Akshay Kumar said, 'Why would I clash with my own film? It will be either Padman or 2.0." So basically, he is putting the anxieties of his fans to rest as both the films would not clash. But which film would shift its date? "While Padman is a film that I have produced, 2.0 belongs to Shankar, Rajinikanth and Lyca Productions. They will decide whether they want to release the film on Republic Day. If they do, I will postpone Padman and if they don't, I will go ahead,"
There are rumours floating around that filmmaker Shankar's sci-fi drama wouldn't be able to see the release taking place on January 25 as the team is yet to close down the VFX and other post production work. But nothing has been officially announced.
