The makers of Padmavati have preponed the film to avoid the clash with Salman Khan's Tiger Zinda Hai. Now Padmavati will release on November 17 2017.
The film was earlier announced to release on 15 December 2017. However YRF announced much anticipated Tiger Zinda Hai on Christmas 2017 (22 December). This would have set up a mini clash between both films. But when the star cast of Padmavati was announced, they only revealed that it will release in 2017.
The makers of Padmavati held a meeting today to discuss the potential release date. Finally it was decided to prepone the film so that both Tiger Zinda Hai and Padmavati enjoys a good run. Both are big budget films so it is a wise decision.
