Given that Maari, starring Dhanush, is scheduled for release on the same date, reports of a fallout between Dhanush and Sivakarthikeyan have surfaced. An overlap in release dates will put the films in direct box-office competition. However, Maari‘s director Balaji Mohan has clarified that the July 17 release date has been scheduled for sentimental reasons. Last year, Dhanush’s Velaiyilla Pattadhari was released on the same weekend, and turned out to be enormously successful.
Meanwhile, fans of Vaalu, which has suffered several setbacks, are sincerely hoping that there is no further delay, and no further disappointment. While Vaalu has finalized this date, Maari’s release date has yet to be officially confirmed.
