Just a few days ago, the lead actor of 'PadMan' Akshay had said that the clash with 'Padmaavat' doesn't affect him.
But, now it seems on the "request" of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, he has agreed to postpone the release of his movie. PadMan would now release on February 9.
Given that the stakes for Padmaavat are so high, it is pretty big of Akshay.
The film was earlier scheduled to hit the theatres on January 25, but now it has been postponed by almost two weeks.
Breaking this news before Akshay's Press Conference, Komal Nahta wrote on Twitter, "PadMan release postponed to 9th February. Padmaavat will be solo release on 25th January."

'PadMan' is based on the story of Tamil Nadu-based social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, who is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making-machine.
He has innovated grass-roots mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India.
He was awarded Padma Shri by the Government of India; he also featured on Time Magazine's list of '100 most influential people'.
