The two young generation superstars, Vijay and Ajith, are ready for the Diwali battle. With the distributors getting ready to empty their bank accounts, the theatres are gearing up their renovations to accommodate the huge crowds. And when there is a Vijay and Ajith battle, their fans are sure to get excited and a superlative opening for both is in the offing.
It is not something new for both these actors to have a movie release on the same day and the success percentage is almost equal. With the recent head-to-head clash being Pokkiri and Aalwar, where Vijay had the last laugh and prior to that when Aadhi and Paramasivan hit the screens Ajith won the battle. Who will win this battle is yet to be seen.
Saimira Productions has bought the worldwide rights of Azhagiya Tamil Magan for an astounding Rs. 20 crores. The house is very happy with the buy.
Billa team has also let out their price, stated to be Rs. 15 crores. Three companies are in the race for this project. Adlabs, co-producer of Ajith’s latest movie Kreedom, is willing to buy the movie, as it was one of their few profitable ventures. London Karunas of Ayngaran films is also eyeing the rights of the film. It is a known fact that London Karunas is the frontrunner to produce Ajith’s next movie. But, what is more surprising is that, Saimira who has also procured the rights of ATM, is showing some keenness too.
It would be quite interesting as the same company will have both Ajith and Vijay movies in their kitty. And if that happens, the release of one of the movies might be postponed as the company won’t want a dent on the collections of both their projects. Let’s wait for the official statement and hope this Diwali does become a Thala and Ilayathalapathy Diwali.
