‘Thalapathy’ Vijay’s Sarkar, ever since its production kicked off earlier this year, was intended to be a Diwali release with a confirmation being made not long back.
Dhanush’s Enai Noki Paayum Thota, directed by Gautham Menon, too was announced yesterday (04.09.2018) to be coming out alongside Sarkar this Diwali.
That said, this won’t be the first time Vijay and Dhanush’s films will be clashing alongside each other at the box office as they have faced off 5 times in the past with the list as follows:
Thirupaachi-Devathaiyai Kanden (Pongal 2005)
Sivakasi-Adhu Oru Kana Kaalam (Diwali 2005)
Azhagiya Tamil Magan-Polladhavan (Diwali 2007)
Villu-Padikkadavan (Pongal 2009)
Kaavalan-Aadukalam (Pongal 2011)
