Ajith Kumar"s Asal directed by Saran will also hit the screens for the occasion. Actors Vijay and Ajith Kumar have been best rivalries at box office. It"s worth mentioning that both their films have been released on the same occasion (Thirumalai and Aanchaneya for Diwali 2003, Aadhi and Paramasivan for Tamil New Year 2006).
This time, it may get tougher for both the stars as they have got to deliver a successful film since their previous releases had witnessed unfavourable results.
Apart from Vijay"s Vettaikkaran and Ajith Kumar"s Asal, Karthi-Tamanna starrer Paiyya s also getting released. Buzzes are that Silambarasan"s Vinnaithandi Varuvaya directed by Gowtham Menon may also release for the festive occasion.
Finally, Vijay"s Vettaikkaran is slated to hit the screens for Pongal 2010. It"s been a well known story that the film was supposed to get released for Diwali and literally got postponed due to last minute changes in shooting schedule. Now, the closer hands of trade analysts have mentioned that Pongal 2010 will have more releases.
