Audiences will have a choice of both films. Reports also say that the film will not release in Rajasthan.

After the Padmavati debacle past year, Sanjay Leela Bhansali can finally breathe a sigh of relief. " Padmavat will enjoy a historic start even if it releases on a Monday instead of a Friday since there is vast curiosity about the film anyway", he told mid-day. "It depends on Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions to decide on the date", Prerna Arora, one of the producers of Padman, said.

"The sacrifice by Queen Padmini (also known as Padmavati) is a matter of honour and respect for all of us and hence we will not allow anyone to show disrespect to this honour", Scindia added further.

"Every film has the right to release whenever they (makers) want, and I am happy for them", he told reporters. Akshay announced it officially.

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) recently gave U/A certification along with some modifications and suggested to change its title to "Padmavat". Though there was no official word on the release of the film, the industry seemed to be preparing for a January 25 release. The release of Padmavat is also being opposed by several Rajput outfits, who have alleged that the film distorts historical facts. Starcast of the movie includes Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor.

The third film releasing on Republic Day weekend is Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee's Aiyaary, directed by Neeraj Pandey.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's most awaited film Padmavat has announced its official release date on Monday.
