STR has updated that Podaa Podi would be his Diwali release for the year. Vaalu was earlier widely publicized as being a Diwali release at the time of its teaser release itself. But, now Vaalu might be pushed to Pongal as work is still pending on that film.
Podaa Podi recently had a single track released named "Love Panalamaa Venaama" which has received the thumbs-up from STR fans for being a hep and happening number. This long in the making movie is finally nearing the finish line and the audio launch would happen anytime in October. Dharan has composed the music for this dance based movie which also happens to be Varalakshmi Sarathkumar's debut as a lead actress.
STR's previous Diwali release was Vallavan way back in 2006 and the star is happy that he would be having a Diwali release after a long time. Now, it is going to be a royal clash between STR and Vijay as the latter's Thuppakki is also confirmed to hit the screens for the festival of lights.
