Tamil film industry considers Vijay and Ajith as box-office (BO) rivals. It is well-known that their fans also believe that there is a bit of competition between the two actors for the number one spot. Now that Velayudham and Mangaatha are releasing in August, the stage is set for a BO battle and it will eventually decide who is the best among them , claims a report.
However, the movies are not hitting the screens on the same day. There will be a gap of two weeks between the release of Velayudham and Mangaatha, confirms a report. Industry insiders say that the shortage of theatres issue might arise, as both the films need at least 500 cinema halls for release considering their market.
It may be recalled that Vijay and Ajith posed together for a camera a few months ago. It was during the shooting of their respective films (Velayudham and Mangaatha) at the Binny Mills complex in Chennai. The latter also cooked biriyani and presented a wristwatch to the former.
