Malayalam film industry and the followers of Mollywood are eagerly waiting for the big box-office clash that would happen this weekend. Movies of both Mammootty and Mohanlal, the superstars of Mollywood, are releasing on the same day.
Puli Murugan is Mohanlal's big release of the month whereas Mammootty is coming with the entertainer Thoppil Joppan. Who would win the race? We have to wait and see.
Interestingly, it is after a gap of 15 years that movies of both the superstars are releasing on the same date. It was in the year 2001, that this happened previously.
During the Onam season of 2001, Mammootty's Rakshasarajavu did have a clash with Mohanlal's Ravanaprabhu, at the box office. It was a big war at the box office and finally, Ravanaprabhu won the race hands down.
After that, both the actors have made it a point to avoid box office clashes by not releasing their films on the same day. Even in the case of festival releases, there would be a gap of atleast a day between the release of both the actors' films.
Well, we would like to wish both the films all the very success. We hope that both the films would bring in good revenue to the film industry.
