‘Padmavat’ vs ‘PadMan’ at Box Office! Twitter has just One Joke calling both as ‘PERIOD’ films

After emerging from multiple controversies,  Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavat is reportedly slated for a January 25 release, with a possible clash at the box office with Akshay Kumar- starrer Padman.

Now that the period drama ‘Padmavat’ is releasing on the same date as a film about periods ’Padman’. As soon as the release date was out, Twitter users started putting out their opinions but one joke that was common was that they said both are ‘PERIOD’ films.

Twitter has predictably gone into an overdrive with witty jokes. While many are wondering which movie will get better collection at the box office, others are have put on their funny caps to make the most obvious – period jokes.

One user wrote, “If Padmavati does release on the same day as Padman, it will be a first for Hindi films. Two period films on the same day.” Another wrote, “#Padmavati & #Padman releasing together. Period.”

Talking of PadMan, the film is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham. It’s the story of how one man came up with a revolutionary method of producing cost-effective sanitary napkins and empowered thousands of women across the country in the process. It stars Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in the lead roles.

Coming to  Padmavat, the film stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. Ranveer will be seen essaying the role of Alauddin Khilji and Shahid will step into the shoes of Maharawal Ratan Singh. Deepika will be playing Padmini – the Rajput queen.

In an earlier interview, when Akshay was asked about starring in PadMan which delves into the topic of menstruation, the actor stated, “If you change nothing, nothing will change. It’s not about being bold, but about breaking taboos that hold us back. I have lived with women all my life, yet I have learnt more about the topic while making this film than ever before. I do not mind who I offend or whose stomach I turn by being bold, this is not the Stone Age; menstruating is natural.”

Even Amitabh Bachchan has joined the conversation on Twitter.
