It’s a mega three way battle at Kollywood box office this Diwali
Festival seasons are always a great time to release movies. Filmmakers across the country plan their releases accordingly to cash in on the holiday season. If its Onam for Mollywood and Eid for Bollywood, its Diwali for Kollywood. This Diwali, Kollywood box office will most probably witness a huge clash between the three top stars of the industry – Vijay, Ajith and Suriya. While Suriya’s NGK is almost confirmed, Vijay’s yet-to-be titled Murugadoss movie and Ajith’s Viswasam are racing ahead to complete for the Diwali 2018 clash.
Suriya’s NGK is directed by Selvaraghavan. Shoot for the movie is currently in the final stages and is expected to be wrapped up by the end of this month. Sai Pallavi and Rakul Preet Singh play the two female leads in this movie which is touted to be a political flick. Selvaraghavan is one of the finest filmmakers in Tamil cinema and when he teams up with Suriya for the first team, expectations are bound to be on the higher side.
Ajith is joining hands with director Siva for the fourth time for a new flick titled Viswasam. Nayanthara is playing the female lead in this movie. If reports are to be believed, Ajith is playing a dual role as brothers in Viswasam, which is said to be a mass commercial entertainer. Shoot for the movie is currently progressing in Hyderabad and the team still has two more schedules left in Mumbai and Chennai.
After the blockbuster success of Thupakki and Kaththi, Vijay and AR Murugadoss are teaming up for the third time. Thalapathy 62 (working title) is said havs strong political flavors and Vijay reportedly plays a millionaire in the movie. Keerthy Suresh plays the female lead in the movie which also has Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar in a crucial role. AR Rahman scores music for this big budget mass entertainer funded by Sun Pictures.
Reports from Kollywood medias suggest that makers of all the three movies are working towards a Diwali release. However, trade experts believe that such a scenario will have a big impact in the overall box office figures. Let’s wait and see how the drama unfolds.
