Earlier, it was reported that Rajinikanth’s Petta and Ajith’s Viswasam was supposed to lock horns on Pongal, which falls on January 15, 2019. Now, it looks like there’s a slight change in the release date.
Since January 14 is a weekday, the makers realised that releasing the film that previous weekend will do wonders for the film. However, there has been no official confirmation from both teams.
It is said that Petta and Viswasam will collide with each other at the box office on January 10. Sources reveal that it is almost confirmed that these two releases would hit the theatres on the said date.
However, distributors feel that releasing to two A-list hero films on the same day will compromise on the profit. It is a lose-lose situation for producers, distributors and theatre owners.
Also, it is certain that the makers of a Petta and Viswasam might not back off from the Pongal race.
