SPI Cinemas, the leading multiplex chain in Chennai has started the pre-booking for Suriya’s Thaanaa Serndha Koottam and Chiyaan Vikram’s Sketch. Both the films are slated to release on January 12 for the long Pongal weekend.
Gnanavel Raja is the producer of Thaanaa Serndha Koottam and Thanu is taking care of Sketch’s release in Tamil Nadu. Interestingly, Gnanavel and Thanu are considered to be rivals in the industry so both of them will be competing hard to get more screens for their respective films.
Besides Thaanaa Serndha Koottam and Sketch, Prabhu Deva’s Gulaebaghavali, Sundar C’s Kalakalappu 2 and Vijay Sethupathi’s Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren are also eyeing the Pongal weekend. Trade sources say that two out of these five films will be definitely pushed due to less availability of screens and an official announcement will be out in January first week.
