According to a report by IndiaGlitz, Dhanush's Maari will now have a revised release date and will most probably hit the screens a week later on 24th as opposed to its previous release date, 17th of July.
The reason behind Maari's delay is said to be Simbu's Vaalu. As the film has been in the making for a long time and considering how important the success of Vaalu could be to the Manmadhan actor's career, it is suspected that Dhanush might've held out his helping hand to Simbu.
Also, considering the fact that July 17th could be the beginning of a certain Ramzan weekend, Vaalu might cash in on the festival spirit; all the more reason to heap praises on Dhanush. Having said that, it remains to be seen what kind of an effect his alleged decision might possibly have in the box office collections of Maari.
Simbu and Dhanush are considered on-screen rivals and hence the news that both Maari and Vaalu were releasing on the same day had excited fans and movie goers alike. But going by latest reports, Dhanush's fans might need to wait a wee bit longer to experience the magic of Maari.
Stay tuned for further updates:
Meanwhile, check out some of the interesting stills from Maari and Vaalu in the slides below:
Doing A M.G.R?
Going by this still, looks like Dhanush might be recreating some of the trademark dance steps of M.G.R. Also, these images from the film suggests that the fans will be treated to some colorful pictures in Maari.
Playing With Fire
Dhanush was initially rumoured to be seen as a tailor living in north-Madras in the film. Sources close to the film's unit later revealed that he would be seen as a local slum chieftain for which he had to speak in the Madras accent.
Going by the trailer and posters, Dhanush might be playing a local don who likes to irritate others. A sadistic character perhaps?
Simbu's Hobby In Vaalu?
Coming back to Vaalu, it looks like Simbu's favourite pastime in the movie is flying kites. He sure looks like a dedicated kite flyer in this particular still.
Simbu's Love Story
Looks like Vaalu's story yet again revolves around two central characters(like most of Simbu's movies). And going by this image, one can safely say that Hansika is not happy with Simbu. A break-up scene inspired from their real life?
Going by the stills, Vaalu might house a number of fight sequences. But in this still, it looks as if Simbu is not quite ready to fight.
