Ajith vs Vijay for Pongal 2014! Big Box office Clash

Actors Ajith and Vijay are busy with their respective projects currently. While Ajith is juggling Vishnuvardhan's venture (the actor's 53rd) and Siruthai Siva's film, Vijay is awaiting the release of 'Thalaivaa' and has started work on 'Jilla' being directed by Nesan.

Looking at the way in which the projects are progressing, it seems like they will end up battling for box-office honors during the 2014 Pongal festival in January.

It must be noted that the makers of Ajith's 54th film directed by Siva, have said that around 60 percent of the movie has been completed.

The movie has Tamannah as the heroine and music is by Devi Sri Prasad. It is learnt that the producers are gearing up to shoot two songs in Switzerland soon and arrangements are on for the same.

The star-studded cast includes Santhanan, Ramesh Kanna, Viddharth, Munish, Suhail, Ilavarasu and Nadodigal Abhinaya among others.

On the other hand, Vijay's 'Jilla' which sees the actor pair up with 'Thuppakki' heroine Kajal Agarwal again, will have Malayalam superstar Mohanlal doing an important role, and has made impressive progress too.

It has to be remembered that the producers of 'Jilla' had embarked on the project with an idea of releasing it in January 2014.

So, it looks like it will be a battle of the titans at the BO next Pongal!

Thalaivaa treat for Vijay fans - A.L.Vijay

Ahead of actor Vijay’s film Thalaivaa, one can’t help wondering if the A. L. Vijay-directed film has political undertones. Quiz the filmmaker about this, and he insists, “This film has nothing to do with politics. But it will have everything that the actor’s fans usually expect from his films. I have revealed the story in the trailer — it’s about a rich, soft-spoken youth (played by Vijay) with an interest in dance who gradually evolves as a leader.”

When one takes into account the fact that the film is set in the Tamil-speaking areas of Mumbai, it is hard to disassociate it with other iconic films that have used the city as the setting. Is this the ‘Baasha’ moment that Vijay fans have been waiting for? “The moment you write a script which has a protagonist turning into some sort of a leader, taking over from someone else, and, on top of it, set in Mumbai, it is difficult to avoid comparisons with films such as Nayagan. But, again, I assure you, it’s not similar in content.”

Yet, he says, it is not a non-Ilayathalapathy film either. In fact, the filmmaker insists that it is an out-and-out ‘entertainer’, very much like the other films of the actor. “Even before we started this project, Vijay told me that the film should have both his sensibilities and mine,” he says.

The filmmaker denies that Vijay was the obvious choice for the protagonist once he decided that the ‘boy growing into a leader” would be the crux. “I just knew the film needed a big star. I floated the idea to Vijay and he happened to like it. It was not written for him,” he says. How has Vijay contributed to the film? “Vijay is someone who strives to make the director happy at all times. He gives his undivided attention to everything the director says. He has performed remarkably well in a role in which he had to bring out the difference in body language and voice as the character undergoes a transition from a youth to a respected leader.”

What is director Vijay’s idea of a good leader? “A good leader is someone who constantly listens to the people. I don’t think anyone can become a leader. The people need to recognise one among them as a leader and that’s what I have explored in the film,” he says.

About his successful association with cinematographer Nirav Shah and music composer G.V. Prakash Kumar, the filmmaker says, “We are like a family. These are the people I turn to when I need feedback.”

With Thalaivaa getting ready for release next month, how confident does he feel about the film? “It has a good story and a great star. I think I have made a good film. Let’s wait and watch,” he signs off, smiling.

Dhanush says, ''Thank you Vijay Anna''

Dhanush’s Maryan is releasing on 19th July and the actor is much excited about this Bharat Bala’s film. He vouches that the treatment of the plot by Bharat Bala will be something unique. He is also quite satisfied with his recent foray into the Hindi film industry through Raanjhanaa and the positive response to his performance.

However his happiness has gone over the moon when Ilayathalapathy Vijay had mentioned that Dhanush is a better actor than him in a recent gathering. This appreciation has really really upped Dhanush’s mood, and he considers this as the greatest reward in his life. He further adds, “Vijay will not appreciate anyone who is not honest in his work. Hence coming from him, I value this very dearly. Thank you Vijay Anna”.

Dhanush definitely is on cloud nine with this kind of compliment from Vijay and is looking forward to Maryan’s release with a renewed vigor.
