It's a good thing that SLB has requested Akki to postpone his film. What's funny is how such idiots on Twitter say that Akki ran away and they used this whole Canadian stuff against him in their tweets. Akki is such a humble guy to avoid this clash because he knows the stakes are very high for Padmaavat. Not to mention, SLB has gone through so much with all these controversies surrounding this film. He has no other choice but to release as soon as possible to get the film out of the way.
I'm not a fan of SLB movies but I think he deserves a solo release. When I saw the press conference on YouTube, I felt it was done in a professional manner. Both SLB & Akki were straightforward about this whole situation when they talked about it.
