Finally, Kamal Haasan has announced the release date of his Viswaroopam.
Today's (Nov 28) Tamil newspapers have carried ads that the film is releasing worldwide on January 11 in three languages Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
The Viswaroopam ad only shows Raj Kamal Film International as the producers, which means that they themselves are distributing the film worldwide.
The details of any tie-up's are not there in the ad.
Kamal Haasan's Viswaroopam now joins Pongal 2013 race. The others in the race are Karthi's Alex Pandian, Jayam Ravi's Aadhi Bhagavan and Vishal's Madha Gaja Raja. All these films had released ads that they are coming for Pongal 2013.
Now it looks like there will be a very bitter Pongal war as theaters will be difficult to get. This Diwali has clearly indicated that there is only space for one major release, as proved by the success of Thuppakki.
