This isn’t something new, but a process over the years. Perhaps, it’s a mere coincidence as the films of Vijay & Dhanush have clashed several times in the box office, especially for the festive occasion of Pongal. Three years back, it was Villu Vs Padikadhavan that was released on January 14. However both the films received lukewarm response disappointing the fans.
This year 2011, it was Aadukalam and Kaavalan that won critical acclaims and yielded best results for producers as well.
The forthcoming Pongal is not gonna be an exception as the actors will continue to clash with their films. If what we heard from the trade circles is believed to be true then Dhanush’s upcoming movie ‘3’ directed by his wife Aishwarya will hit screens on January 14, 2012. Shankar’s ‘Nanban’ starring Vijay, Jeeva and Srikanth is already confirmed for the same occasion as the paper ads have already confirmed it as ‘Pongal is Well’.
