Petta to clash with Viswasam on Pongal
Sun Pictures, the production house of Petta, has released a new poster featuring Rajini and Simran with the caption that says: 'Pongaluku Parak'
It was speculated last week that Karthik Subbaraj's Petta would be released in February to give some breathing space to the other Rajinikanth-starrer 2.0, which is scheduled for release on November 29. Falsifying these rumours, Sun Pictures, the production house of Petta, has released a new poster featuring Rajini and Simran with the caption that says: 'Pongaluku Parak (Arriving this Pongal)'.
Interestingly, Ajith's Viswasam was also recently confirmed as a Pongal release. Though Rajinikanth and Ajith have not faced each other directly in the box office till now, the Ajith-Vijay-starrer Rajavin Parvaiyile was released on August 4, 1995 in Tamil Nadu, while Rajini's Hindi film, Aatank Hi Aatank, hit the screens on the same date all over India.
Apart from Petta and Viswasam, Simbu and Sundar C's Vantha Rajava Thaan Varuven, and RJ Balaji's LKG are the frontrunners for the Pongal race.
