Actors Vishal and Vijay are set to clash with each other – albeit in theatres – as their upcoming films are slated to hit the screens on Pongal next year.
Kaththi Sandai, which Vishal has co-produced with Nandhagopal and has played the lead role opposite ‘milky beauty’ Tamannaah, missed its release date in theatres at least twice in the past. It was to release during Deepavali but Vishal held back the film’s release to as to enable friend and actor Karthi’s Kaashmora to have a free-run at the box-office.
Suraj has directed the film which has Jagapati Babu, Soori and ‘comeback man’ Vadivelu in significant roles. It may be recalled that Vijay’s Bairava is also to release in theatres on Pongal next year. It pits Keerthy Suresh opposite him for the first time on screen.
It’s not the first time that Vishal and Vijay are clashing at the box-office; during 2007 Pongal, Vishal’s Thamirabharani and Vijay’s Pokkiri released and succeeded. Again, in 2014, Vishal released his Poojai on Pongal when Vijay’s Kaththi released; it was again success for both the films. We only hope that both the heroes turn out to be luckier the third time as well!
