Indian film audiences love watching films around festival times. Their joy is doubled when films of their favorite stars release on an auspicious day. Tamil film audiences are currently awaiting the release of Theri which is all set for release on 14th April (Tamil New Year’s Day). This is ‘Illayathalapathy’ Vijay’s first release of the year, and fans are excited to watch him on the big screen. And since his last release, Puli, wasn’t received well, fans are keeping their fingers crossed for this one. But Theri has competition!
Bollywood Badshah, Shah Rukh Khan’s Fan (releases on 15th April) will clash with Theri. However, this is not the first time that they are clashing. In the past, Vijay’s Velayudham, Thuppakki, Thalaivaa and Kaththi clashed with SRK’s Ra one, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Chennai Express and Happy New Year respectively. Theri vs Fan will be their fifth clash at the box office. Looks like the Bollywood film might face tough competition from Theri, in and around Tamil Nadu.
It has to be noted that Shah Rukh Khan’s films have clashed with other Bollywood releases in the past. Last year, Dilwale clashed with Bajirao Mastani. SRK’s film Raees will clash with Salman Khan’s Sultan this Eid.
Theri and Fan are going to face it off in the movie battleground. Who will emerge victorious? We have to wait and watch.
