Looks like Gandhi Jayanti, which falls on the 2nd of October every year, is one of the preferred dates for the makers of Tamil cinema to release their respective films. It certainly looks that way this year as two important flicks might release on October 2nd even as one biggie missed the date by a whisker.
It is a known fact that Chiyaan Vikram's 10 Enradhukulla was scheduled to hit the big screen on October 2nd. However, the latest news is that the film has been postponed for an October 21st release citing a lag in the fag end of shooting schedule.
With 10 Enradhukulla not releasing on October 2nd as expected earlier, it is being said that Thirrupathi Brothers are eyeing Gandhi Jayanti to bring alive their pending project Rajini Murugan, starring Sivakarthikeyan and Keerthy Suresh in the lead.
Interestingly, according to a source, Dhanush has already zeroed in on October 2nd to release his yet to be titled film with director Velraj which has Samantha and Amy Jackson playing his heroines. This film, tentatively titled as 'VIP 2', also has director KS Ravikumar and Radhika in prominent roles.

Sivakarthikeyan To Clash With Dhanush?
If 'VIP 2' hits the theatre on October 2nd as per Dhanush's wish and if Thirrupathi Brothers decide to release Rajini Murugan on the same day, then movie buffs will have a chance to witness a direct face off between Dhanush and Sivakarthikeyan for the first time ever.
What's Delaying 10 Enradhukulla?
It is said that a small portion of the film is yet to be shot and hence the makers are in no position to release the film anytime soon. Considering the average time consumed to complete the post production works of any movie, the Vikram starrer might not even release in October.
Vikram's Upcoming Projects
After 10 Enradhukulla, Vikram will be seen in Marma Manithan being directed by Anand Shankar and AG Amid's yet to be titled film. It was recently reported that Vikram might be approached for a role in the Tamil remake of an English flick Warrior.
Dhanush's Upcoming Projects
Post 'VIP 2', Dhanush will be teaming up with Vetrimaran. Dhanush's previous projects with Vetrimaran includes Polladhavan and Aadukalam. Aadukalam fetched 6 awards at the 58th National Film Awards, including awards for Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Actor.
Sivakarthikeyan's Upcoming Projects
Sivakarthikeyan is currently working on a high budget film being directed by Bhagyaraj Bharathi. It was reported that Sivakarthikeyan will be seen in 3 different roles; a woman, an old man and a young man.
Will October Host Three Big Releases?
If everything goes as per plans, then this October will see the release of three big films; Rajini Murugan, 'VIP 2' and 10 Enradhukulla. If that happens then Tamil movie buffs will have a feast of a month.
