For the last few weeks, there have been speculation on Selvaraghavan's Dhanush-starrer Naane Varuvean clashing with Mani Ratnam's multi-starrer flick Ponniyin Selvan at the box office. Though the decision of the latter left movie buffs surprised, they were hell bent on releasing the film towards the end of this month.
However, unlike Ponniyin Selvan which announced their arrival on September 30, makers of Naane Varuvean didn't come up with a release date until a few minutes ago. But there was unconfirmed news doing the rounds that the movie produced by Kalaippuli S Thanu will hit screens around the same time.
Dhanush, Selva and Thanu have now taken to their Twitter pages to confirm that the movie will release in theatres on September 29. It will be interesting to see how exhibitors will plan their schedules for both the films. Naane Varuvean marks the collaboration of brothers Selva and Dhanush after more than a decade's hiatus.
The teaser of the film which was released recently has elevated expectations surrounding the movie. Dhanush has played dual characters for the first time in the project which has Elli AvrRam, Prabhu, Indhuja and Yogi Babu essaying significant roles in it.
Om Prakash and Bhuvan Srinivasan have handled cinematography and editing respectively for the film which has action choreography helmed by Stunt Silva. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed music; the first single of the film has garnered appreciation from music buffs.
Naane Varuvean will be Dhanush's fourth release this year after Maaran, The Gray Man and Thiruchitrambalam. The first two films were released directly on Disney+ Hotstar and Netflix respectively, while the latter hit the screens a month ago.
