Ilayathalapathy Vijay will have a clash at Box Office with
Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan this year too. Their
much-anticipated movies - Thuppakki and Jab Tak Hai Jaan
- are hitting the screens at the same time for this Diwali.
Thuppakki and Jab Tak Hai Jaan are set to
release on November 13. Both the movies are expected to have large
releases worldwide, considering their popularity all across the
world. Traders predict that the films could see the light in over
1,500+ screens in different languages.
However, it is believed that the Kollywood movie will be
affected to a large extent in countries like Sri Lanka, Malaysia,
Singapore and other countries, where Tamil is a prominent language.
Earlier, Vijay and Shahrukh Khan had a clash at Box Office last
Diwali with their releases Velayudham and
Vijay's Thuppakki is an action movie directed by AR
Murugadoss of Ghajini fame. The story is set in the
backdrop of Mumbai and centred around the life in the streets of
the commercial capital. The film produced by Kalaipuli S Dhanu also
features Kajal Aggarwal, Vidyut Jamal, Akshara
Gowda and others in the cast.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a love triangle and it stars
Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles.
Legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra is making a comeback into direction
after eight years with this movie. Oscar winner AR Rahman has
composed the music for the film.
