Well, it seems like Malayalam film industry is getting ready for a never seen before kind of box-office clash.
The makers of Dulquer Salmaan's upcoming movie
Kammatipaadam announced the release date of the film and
it is scheduled to hit the theatres on 20th May 2016.
Interestingly, there are also reports doing the rounds that
Mammootty's much-awaited film White directed by Uday
Ananthan is also planning for a release on the same date.
Even though, no confirmations have been given regarding the
release date of White, there are chances for the film to get
released in the mid of May.
The film was earlier scheduled to be the Vishu release of
Mammootty but had to push the dates further, owing to the delay in
post-production works of the film.
Later, the film was expected to release on April 29th, but
further delay happened because of the news regarding the theatre
On the other hand, Dulquer Salmaan's Kammatipaadam is
gearing up for the release amidst huge expectations. The film will
have Dulquer Salmaan in different get-ups and is said to be one of
the most challenging roles done by the actor so far.
Earlier, in 2013, Dulquer Salmaan's Neelakasham Pachchakadal
Chuvanna Bhoomi did release along with Mammootty's Kadal
Kadannu Oru Maathukutty. But, there was a gap of one day
between both the films' release.
In 2014, both Mammootty's Manglish and Dulquer Salmaan's Vikramadithyan made to theatres as a Ramzan release with a gap of 2 days between both the films' release.
