Big battle in box-office: Both Bigil, Kaithi to hit screens on Oct 25

Kollywood box-office is all set to witness an all out battle between Vijay-starrer Bigil and Karthi-starrer Kaithi, as both films will hit the screens on December 25.

Originally slated to be released on Deepavali day (December 27), both these films have been now advanced to cash in on the festival weekend craze.

As both the films are scheduled to release on the same day, theater owners are now working hard to allocate the shows and screens for these two biggies.

Meanwhile, Indian formula car racing driver Alisha Abdullah applauded Vijay and Atlee, as she found the trailer of Bigil is fantastic.

She posted,” Watched the trailer of #bigil #BIGILMostLikedIndianTrailer. It gave me goosebumps… what a powerful impact through a trailer.. all the very best @Atlee_dir you have done an amazing job.. I can’t wait for the movie @actorvijay.”

Kaithi is directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, who is currently directing Vijay for ‘Thalapathy-64’. On Kaithi starring Karthi clashing in the box-office with Vijay’s Bigil during Deepavali, he said, “A director’s job is to complete the film. Producers decide the release date. Since ‘Kaithi’ is slated to release in both Tamil and Telugu, they felt Deepavali release will be apt.”

Karthi, who is awaiting the release of Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Kaithi, is presently shooting for Sulthan. Directed by Bakkiyaraj Kannan, the film is produced by Dream Warrior Pictures and marks Rashmika Mandanna’s foray into Kollywood.
