Looks like AR Rahman has completed his BGM for I and so the most anticipated news is here, I is scheduled to be released for Pongal next year on January 14th. It has been officially announced by the film's producer Aascar Ravichandran. What's interesting is that earlier, Aascar Ravichandran had expressed his desire to release the movie for Christmas this year but has yet again made some adjustments pertaining to the release date of Shankar's magnum opus.
There might be a couple of reasons why the producer has postponed the release from Christmas to Pongal. One of it could be to provide that extra time frame to the Mozart of Madras to get the background score absolutely right, but the biggest influence in making his decision could've been the Lingaa factor.
We had earlier informed that if I gets released for Christmas then it would definitely clash with Rajinikanth's Lingaa as KS Ravikumar's prestigious project will hit the screens on December 12th. Well, looks like the think tank of I have made a decision to give Lingaa its own space and have decided to clash with Ajith's Yennai Arindhaal instead.
Are there going to be any more changes to the release dates of these big movies? You never know, but for now all 3 release dates of 3 big movies have been confirmed officially and the fans would be hoping that there are no more postpones as far as the release dates are concerned.
Though, I and Yennai Arindhaal will be releasing together, it doesn't rule out the fact that these two films will actually be taking on Lingaa as well as Lingaa would've completed just over a month at the box office and Rajinikanth fans would be hoping that the release of Vikram and Ajith's movies' would have little effect on Lingaa as they would like to see Rajinikanth thrive on big screens all across the world well over a month.
