When Shankar made the announcement that Endhiran 2.0 is coming in January 2018 and not this Diwali, director Atlee instantly booked the slot for his grand film with Vijay titled Mersal. Most films would back off the race because it could be tough to acquire theaters.
Produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, Vikram and Tamannaah is the lead pair in Sketch which may join the race to go against Vijay’s Mersal. The movie is close to its post production work and may aim for Diwali release.
However, other sources claim it may get released during Ayutha Pooja holidays but not on the festive occasion to avoid conflict with Vijay.
