Here's what Twitter is saying about the Padmavat vs PadMan:
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.- Naomi Datta (@nowme_datta) January 8, 2018
However, many on Twitter have now called for the period jokes to be retired.
That hasn't stopped Twitter from cracking jokes about the clash:
In fact, even Amitabh Bachchan joined the conversation:
T 2526 - 'PADMA' the operative key word for film release on 26th Jan 2018 :- Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) January 9, 2018
