In today’s newspapers, team Bhaskar Oru Rascal starring Arvind Swamy and Amala Paul confirmed that the film will hit the screens for Pongal festival weekend.
The other films which are in Pongal battle are —Suriya’s Thaanaa Serndha Koottam, Chiyaan Vikram’s Sketch, Prabhu Deva’s Gulaebhagavali, Sundar C’s Kalakalappu 2 and Shanmugha Pandian’s Maduraveeran.
The main point to be considered here is none of the above said films have got censor certificates. In fact, some of the films are yet to apply for censor so things can be firmly confirmed only after completing the certification formalities.
Another major factor is if Thaanaa Serndha Koottam and Sketch confirm Pongal release, then these two films will occupy nearly 70-80% of screens in Tamil Nadu because of the solid market of the two actors and their respective powerful producers—KE Gnanavel Raja and Kalaipuli S Thanu.
