Despite their public utterances to the contrary, there appears a simmering competition between Simbu and Dhanush. Though they don’t plan it accordingly, invariably their films are released almost at the same time at the box-office, making their respective groups of fans go gaga about it.
If Simbu had a superhit in his last release ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya’, Dhanush didn’t do so badly either as his latest film ‘Aadukalam’ has been declared a super-hit. Though they claim that they’re ‘good friends’, the so-called ‘punch’ dialogues in their films appear to be targeting each other.
With Simbu’s ‘Vaanam’ ready to hit the screens on 8th April, it looks likely that the Dhanush-starrer ‘Maappillai’ would also be releasing on the same day. ‘Vaanam’ is the Tamil remake of the super-hit Telugu film ‘Vedam’ while ‘Maappillai’ is also the remake of a film of the same title which starred Rajnikanth and released in the late eighties.
‘Maappillai’ is likely to do well as the script has been ‘fine-tuned’ according to the taste of today’s youths. Hansika Motwani would be debuting as Dhanush’s heroine in the film while Manisha Koirala, who got married last year, would be playing Dhanush’s mother-in-law in the film.
As far as ‘Vaanam’ is concerned, the movie has Simbu, Bharath, Anushka, Vega, Sonia Aggarwal and Prakash as co-stars and the film is likely to be a successful venture as the Telugu original was.
Let’s wait till 8th April to deliver the verdict!
