It looks like it will be a direct clash between Dhanush and Silambarasan at the summer box-office.
Sun Pictures the market leader is likely to release their Maapillai which has Dhanush and Hansika in the lead on April 8.
A day later on April 9, Silambarasan's multi-starrer Vaanam distributed by Cloud Nine is scheduled to release.
As per trade sources Sun Pictures has blocked April 8 for Mapillai and May 6 for Engeyum Kathal, clearly giving both the films a decent gap of four weeks. Sun Network will aggressively promote both the films, which carry good reports.
Meanwhile producer Ganesh has said that his Vaanam, post-production work is going on in full swing, and the first copy should be ready by April first week. Says Madan: "We are on schedule and should release
Vaanam on April 9, a very good date if all goes well."
