Industry sources say that Arvind Swamy’s Bhaskar Oru Rascal will not release for Pongal. Bharathan Films, distributor of Suriya’s Pongal release Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is also holding the theatrical rights of Bhaskar Oru Rascal so there will not be a clash at the box office, says a source in the trade.
Directed by Malayalam filmmaker Siddique, Bhaskar Oru Rascal is the remake of Mammootty's hit film Bhaskar The Rascal. Amala Paul plays the female lead in Bhaskar Oru Rascal, the film also has Soori, ‘Baby’ Nainika of Theri fame, ‘Master’ Raghavan of Sethupathi fame in important roles.
Sources say that Bhaskar Oru Rascal will hit the screens on Republic Day but the producers are yet to make an official announcement.
