It would be Vijay Vs Vijay at the box-office on Pongal in January as Vijay Sethupathi’s upcoming film Puriyaadha Pudhir has just entered the fray to release on Pongal when Vijay’s Bairavaa would also be releasing.
Vijay Sethupathi has had a fantastic year with successive hit films in the form of Kaadhalum Kadandhu Pogum, Iravi, Dharma Durai, Rekka and Aandavan Kattalai, thus becoming the most successful hero in Tamil films in 2016. His Puriyaadha Pudhir opposite Gayathrie is now slated to release in theatres on Pongal in January.
Vijay’s Bairavaa was earlier to be the solo release on this day but would now be joined by G.V. Prakash Kumar’s Bruce Lee and Vijay Sethupathi’s Puriyaadha Pudhir. C.V. Kumar’s debut directorial venture Adhay Kangal and Arun Vijay’s Kuttram 23 may also join Pongal race, thus making things tough for Vijay.
Jai-starrer Namakku Vaaitha Adaimaigal and Krishna’s Yaakkai are also to release on Pongal but the theatres haven’t yet been finalized.
