The day has started on a delightfully happy note for Ajith Kumar's fans as the release plans of Thunivu was officially announced by the makers, this morning (October 28). Thunivu has been officially confirmed to hit the screens for the festive occasion of Pongal 2023 and this one will be Ajith's next Pongal release after the blockbuster hit of Viswasam. Thunivu's Pongal release announcement has now confirmed us that the film will have an epic box office clash with Thalapathy Vijay's Varisu. Yes! Varisu has already been announced as a Pongal 2023 release and Thunivu has now joined the list, making it an epic clash to remember for ages.

The previous time an Ajith - Vijay film clashed at the box office was in 2014 when Veeram and Jilla released for Pongal. It was a clash that one can never forget and history is all set to repeat itself, this time in 2023, nine years later. Both films will share the screen count and both films have been backed by strong distribution players. The theatrical rights of Thunivu have been acquired by Udhayanidhi Stalin's Red Giant Movies while Thalapathy Vijay's Varisu will be released through Lalit Kumar's Seven Screen Studio. Thunivu will be a high octane action entertainer while Varisu will be a family entertainer.

With both films falling into different genres, an exciting treat indeed awaits fans. It is going to be interesting to see which film triumphs at the box office, but obviously, one would want both films to succeed at the box office, like Petta and Viswasam which clashed in 2019. The clash between Thunivu and Varisu is the current talk of the town and the fans have already started to eagerly look forward to the d-day. Though both films have been announced as Pongal releases, the exact release date will be finalised and announced only in December. Thunivu and Varisu are expected to release a day apart.
