Latest news from the camp of Vijay’s
Vettaikaran suggests that the movie
may not after all make it for Diwali,
the originally proposed release
date. With just over two weeks left
for Diwali there are quite a few
portions of the film that remain
to be shot. This includes a few
talkie scenes and a song for which
the crew plans to go to Australia.
With so much work remaining there
are doubts whether the film will
be ready in time for the festive
With Sun Pictures having acquired
the movie, there have been talks
with Vijay regarding this issue.
Vijay is said to have opined that
the remaining work need not be unduly
hurried; it can be done in the best
way possible. Sun Pictures have
agreed to this and with that it
has been more or less ascertained
that Vetaikaran will not be ready
for Diwali. If not Diwali, then
when will Vettaikaran release?
Obviously there are no plans to
go in for a mid-season release and
the producers are willing to wait
for the next festival season to
set in, which is Pongal. With that
a major change has occurred in the
highly anticipated star clashes.
Everyone expected Aadhavan and Vettaikaran
to clash for the honors this Diwali.
But now, with Vettaikaran’s
Pongal shift, Aadhavan is free and
guess what, it is going to be a
head on with Asal which is also
gearing up for a Pongal release.
So, it is going to be the marquee
clash one more time, Vijay vs. Ajith.
