The unofficial information about Thunivu is that Ajith and producers are keen on releasing the film for Pongal, 2023. On the other hand, already, Prabhas film Adipurush has been scheduled for 12th January, 2023 release and Vijay’s Varisu is also scheduled for Pongal. Shooting updates of Varisu haven’t been coming out as prominently as they used to before. Paidipally Vamsy and team are keen on completing the shoot in given time and ready the film for festival season. Meanwhile, Ajith who is expected to release Thunivu for Diwali, 2022 has postponed it to Pongal time.

Ajith and Vijay have clashed earlier in 2014 Pongal time with Veeram and Jilla, respectively. Both films have eaten into each other’s business. Still, Ajith preferred to clash with Superstar Rajnikanth during 2019 Pongal season and his film Viswasam came out as Tamil Nadu top grosser against Petta. Distributors and exhibitors know the ticket pressure and influence that the three teams are going to use for more shows, better theatres.

Pongal or Sankranthi season is the best time in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharastra kind of agriculture based states for film releases and previously many big films have collected huge during this time, even in clash. So, Ajith team might show it as an example for releasing their movie at the same time with others but it will be tough task to balance and avoid fan fights, wars at theatres. Let’s wait and see.
