As of now, four films have been planned to release for Pongal 2016 viz., Suriya’s ‘24’, Sundar C’s Aranmanai 2, Simbu’s long awaited Idhu Namma Aalu and Bala’s Tharai Thapattai.
But our sources say that Suryia’s ‘24’ will not make it for Pongal as the film has a lot of VFX works and AR Rahman is said to have asked minimum one month for background score.
But all other films including Aranmanai 2, Idhu Namma Aalu and Tharai Thapattai are confirmed for Pongal release. It is said that Tamil Nadu box office can accommodate the above three mid budget films and there won’t be any difficulties in getting screens.
If ‘24’ confirms its release for Pongal, one can expect change in plans for other films.
