The decision of the makers of the Ajith Kumar-starrer Valimai to postpone its theatrical release this Pongal has now paved the way for comedy actor Sathish's hero debut film, Naai Sekar, to arrive on the big screens. Produced by AGS Entertainment, the upcoming film billed to be a fun-filled family entertainer and directed by debutant Kishore Rajkumar has been announced to open in theatres on January 13, producer Archana Kalpathi confirmed on social media on Friday evening. She tweeted, "See you at the movies on Jan 13th Get ready for a light hearted laugh riot this Pongal #NaaiSekar ♥️". Check out the announcement below:

Naai Sekar will now be going up against Sasikumar's Kombu Vatcha Singamda this Pongal and the films will be released with 50% occupancy and the night curfew in effect. Sathish will be seen romancing Cooku with Comali season 2 fame Pavithra Lakshmi in Naai Sekar, which has comfortably taken in the release slot that was once reserved for Ajith's Valimai apart from not having to face the pan-Indian biggies Radhe Shyam starring Prabhas and Pooja Hegde and Baahubali director SS Rajamouli's RRR, which has Jr. NTR and Ram Charan in the lead roles. With all three big films now out of the picture, AGS Entertainment will be looking forward to making use of the golden opportunity that has presented itself before them. 

There has been plenty of excitement for Naai Sekar even prior to its sudden theatrical release announcement and the chart-buster 'Edakku Modakku' single track composed and sung by 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander to the lyrics penned by actor-producer Sivakarthikeyan did quite a lot to get the word out about the film to the masses, while the remaining songs and the background score have been churned out by Super Singer fame Ajesh Ashok. AGS Entertainment's last big release was their 2019 box office money-spinner Bigil starring 'Thalapathy' Vijay and the production banner will hope to taste yet another success with their Naai Sekar in less than a week's time.
