Ajith's Viswasam and Rajinikanth's Petta are set to clash against each other for Pongal. And to cash in on the weekend before the festival, both were expected to come 10 January. Theatres are being booked and all plans are on at hectic pace to get theoviea out on the day and publicity, promotions too began. Trailers of both the movies are put and made an impact in social media.
Interestingly a section of distributors now say that the Viswasam may avoid direct contest and might come only for Pongal day. However the news could not be confirmed.

Petta, bankrolled by Sun Pictures, is directed by Karthik Subbaraj. Trisha, Simran, Vijay Sethupathi and Bobby Simha are in the cast. Music is by Anirudh.
