Akshay Kumar’s Padman to release on Republic day along with his other movie Robot 2.0. Akshay might be upholding his Bharat Kumar image but this is a first.
Akshay seems to be obsessed with Republic and Independence Day releases so much so that now he would be clashing with himself at the box office.
It would be Padman versus Badman Akshay this republic day.In a tweet today, October 29, Akshay Kumar confirmed the dates saying, “Not all superheroes come with capes! Bringing you the true story of a real superhero, #Padman this Republic Day - 26th January, 2018!”

Well Akshay you might not be donning a superhero cape but will it supersede Rajnikanth’s Robot 2.0 at the box office?
The promotions for Robot 2.0 is in full swing with grander preps. The success of the prequel Robot has raised the expectations hoping that it will become the first biggest blockbuster of Indian Cinema next year. A repeat show of the success of S S Rajamouli’s war epic, Baahubali.
While Robot 2.0 is the continuation of Robot (2010) with Akshay Kumar as the antagonist, Padman on the other hand is a film with a social message. The story of a man who pained by the condition of his wife during periods, decides to make cheaper sanitary pads available for women.
With Toilet Ek Prem Katha earlier this year, Kumar has already registered a hit when it comes to hits with a social message.
Rajnikanth’s 2.0 might crush Akshay’s solo ‘Padman’ at the box office. Nonetheless, it is a win-win situation for Akshay Kumar any which way.
