If everything goes as planned, Diwali 2018 will witness three way clash between Vijay, Ajith and Suriya at the box-office. It is believed that their films are gearing up for the festival release and it’s going to be one of the biggest clashes ever. AR Murugadoss has already confirmed that his next film with Vijay, tentatively titled Thalapathy 62, will hit the screens for Diwali 2018. On Monday, producer SR Prabhu of Dream Warrior Pictures confirmed that Suriya’s next yet-untitled project with director Selvaraghavan will roll from January 2018 and will hit the screens for Diwali. Ajith’s next film, most likely to be again with director Siva, has also been confirmed as a Diwali release.
Three stars films have rarely released together as theatres can’t accommodate them. However, it looks like 2018 Diwali might pave way for release of these three big ticket flicks as they have already announced their release date. Diwali is a very important festival release date and at no cost no big film will miss out on an opportunity to come out on that day. Since Ajith’s film hasn’t been officially announced, sources believe the movie might not get ready for Diwali. However, reliable sources from Ajith’s camp have confirmed that the project will be wrapped up in three months flat and the film will definitely hit the screens next Diwali.
Vijay’s project with Murugadoss will also roll from January 2018. The project marks their third outing after Thuppakki and Kaththi. Suriya, on the other hand, is teaming up with Selvaraghavan for the first time and it’s rumoured to be a period flick.
