Director Bala’s long-awaited Thaarai Thappattai has been officially confirmed for Pongal. The team released a poster yesterday affirming the same. Jointly produced by Bala’s B Studios and Sasikumar’s Company Productions, the film will be presented by Ayngaran. Bala is planning a grand audio launch next month to celebrate the incredible feat of Ilayaraja’s 1000th film in the industry.
Other films that have been confirmed for the Pongal bandwagon include Jayam Ravi’s zombie thriller Miruthan, Sundar C’s multi-starrer horror comedy Aranmanai 2, Vishal’s action thriller Kathakali. Two more films including Jiiva-Nayanthara’s Thirunaal and Simbu-Nayanthara’s comeback film Idhu Namma Aalu are also vying for Pongal release.
