It is very essential for 'Padmaavat' to release as early as possible: Akshay Kumar

Addressing the mediapersons in Mumbai on Friday, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar said it was very essential for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus 'Padmaavat' to release as early as possible. On being asked why 'PadMan' moved its release date and not 'Padmaavat', the National-award winner actor said both the movies could have easily released on the same day but at the moment the stake of 'Padmaavat' was much higher than his film. Akshay and filmmaker Bhansali today announced that PadMan's release date has officially been postponed to February 9.
