Well, there is something exciting on the cards for the all the fans of Mammootty and Mohanlal. If reports are to be believed, Mammootty's Thoppil Joppan would lock horns with Mohanlal's Puli Murugan at the box office.
According to the reports, both the films are expected to hit the theatres on October 7, 2016 and if it turns out to be true then Malayalam viewers could witness a big battle at the box-office.
Not so often we get to see Mohanlal and Mammootty films releasing on the same date. Both the stars have always made it a point to avert such a clash as there will be issues with the number of releasing centres.
Puli Murugan is one of the most prestigious projects of Mohanlal and the film has been in the making for quite some time now. The movie was earlier expected as an Eid release, but the makers dismissed those reports as rumours.
Now, reports suggest that the film would release on October 7 , 2016 without any further delay in the releasing dates.
On the other hand, Mammootty's Thoppil Joppan was expected to release during the Onam Season. But, the makers decided to push the dates owing to the delay in the works and also to avoid back-to-back releases of Mammootty films. Meanwhile, Mammootty's White is also set for a release on July 29, 2016.
Let us wait and see whether the makers of both Puli Murugan and Thoppil Joppan decide to release their respective films on the same date. If that happens, it would definitely be an epic battle.
