For Ilaythalapathy Vijay, many superstars have become a nightmare for his movies. Usually Vijay used to face the tough competition from his Kollywood colleagues, but this time he should get ready to take challenge from Bollywood King Khan, Shahrukh Khan. Vijay's latest flick Thalaivaa is all set to release in the first week of August, which is the same time for King Khan's most awaited movie, Chennai Express' release.
Ilayathalapathy faced the same situation with many of his earlier movies. In 2012, Thuppaki avoided the clash with Surya's Maattrraan (Twins) by re-scheduling its release date for a month ahead. Kollywood also saw some of the biggest clash between Vijay and Ajith. Vijay's Pokkiri, Aadhi, Thirumalai and Bhagawathi faced a tough competition with Thala Ajith's Alwar, Paramasivam, Anjaneya and Villian.
Kollywood expected the clash this time with Singam 2 and Thalaivaa, but Singam 2 advancing the release date avoided the clash.
But this time, Vijay's Thalaivaa has to fight with Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express. Sharukh is all set to hit the Box Office with Chennai Express on the auspicious day of Eid. The movie is also much awaited in Tamil Nadu. Now, it should be seen how Chennai Express would affect the regional movie Thalaivaa.
