After tons of controversy, “Padmavati” is finally releasing and it’s causing quite the stir amongst other films trying to get their release-on in 2018.

The controversy and delays in certification of “Padmavati” have brought the film to magnanimous heights, and it is bound to have film lovers scrambling to the theater to see what all the fuss was all about. Filmmakers are aware of this and are already changing around release dates to avoid being trampled by the drama around “Padmavati.”

As of now, “Padmavati” could release on Republic Day, the same day as “Padman” or February 9, the same day as Anushka Sharma’s “Pari.”

In an effort to avoid the issue, Akshay Kumar’s “Padman” has moved the release date to January 25. KriArj Entertainment is co-producing “Padman” and ”Pari,” so there is a chance that “Pari” may be moved as well if “Padmavati” is released on February 9.

“Padman” and “Pari” aren’t the only Bollywood films starting off 2018. The first two months of 2018 will kick off with a variety of promising films, starting with Vikram Bhatt’s “1921.” Bhatt’s latest is a horror film starring Karan Kundra and Zareen Khan. The film was actually shot in a real haunted house and will release January 12.

Saif Ali Khan’s “Kaalakaandi” will also release January 12. This one looks interesting as Saif Ali Khan’s character gets reckless in life after learning he has stomach cancer. It’s a dark comedy with adult content so leave the kids at home for this flick.

Besides “Padman,” Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee’s “Aiyaary” will also be releasing Republic Day weekend. The film is an action thriller with a patriotic touch with Malhotra playing a rogue Major.

Kartik Aaryan and Nushrat Bharucha will team up again for “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” after the success of their hit film “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” and “Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2.” The hilarious comedy releases February 9.

Rani Mukherjee’s “Hichki,” John Abraham and Diana Penty’s “Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran” and Richa Chaddha’s “Love Sonia” will all release February 23. The list goes on for the many Bollywood releases lined up for the year.

  • Is Friday anyone’s cheat day? Let’s be clear, by cheat I mean food not people. 😒What do you subscribe to - eating relatively well all week with one day to eat whatever? Or still other people don’t believe in cheat days, but practice moderation every day. And still others, such as myself, designated one day for a cheat day which then turned into a cheat month and that was like a year ago, sooo yeah, there’s that. What’s on your plate today, literally and figuratively? Happy Foodie Friday, fam! ___________________________ #friday #fridaymood #fridayfood #foodie #foodlover #foodiegram #foodielife #foodiefriday #cheatday #cheatdays #cheatingquotes #cheaters #cheating #diet #dietplan #moderation #eatingwell #sexyfood #southasianfood #foodblooger

  • I love everything about this image. The romance of it, the lush colors, the exquisite ensembles worn by both the woman and her man. I want to drape everyone around me in these hues, eat cupcakes that taste like hopes and dreams and have my feet touch nothing but rose petals. Sike. I really just want to get through the day. Cupcakes optional. Still love this look. • 📷: @finepixelstudio • #hopes #dreams #romance #cupcakes #unicorn #southasianstyle #roses #designerwear #floralprint #pinkandteal #getthroughtheday #fairydust #thursday #thursdaythoughts
