The Telugu industry is looking at a packed Sankranthi in 2024 as films of Mahesh Babu, Nagarjuna, Venkatesh, Ravi Teja and Vijay Deverakonda are ready to take on each other. Cinephiles are looking forward to knowing if at least one or two of them will back out at the last minute.
Back in Kollywood, the situation isn't that complex during the festival in January, but there are notable movies getting ready for a clash. The likes of Suriya's Kanguva, Kamal Haasan's Indian 2 and Vikram's Thangalaan were said to be hitting the screens for Pongal in Tamil Nadu, but it looks like these projects will arrive only a little later.
Ayalaan, Aranmanai 4, Siren and Vanangaan: Kollywood gears for Pongal 2024 race
Sivakarthikeyan's Ayalaan was the first movie to announce a Pongal release. The sci-fi drama helmed by Ravikumar was initially planned as a Deepavali release this year. The pending post-production works led them to opt for a Pongal release. Sundar C's Aranmanai 4 is the next outing which has a confirmed release for the festival.
Jayam Ravi's Siren and Arun Vijay's Vanangaan are other films that are eyeing the festival. The former, helmed by Anthony Bhagyaraj, is a crime drama while the latter directed by Bala is a social drama.
The summer season and second half of 2024 to witness big-ticket Tamil movies
According to sources, Ajith's Vidaa Muyarchi and Vijay's Thalapathy 68 are targeting summer releases in 2024. Rajinikanth's Thalaivar 170 is another biggie that might arrive around the same time.
All eyes are on the release update on Kanguva and Thangalaan. Indian 2 is said to be clashing with Pushpa 2, which already announced its release in August 2024.
