It is going to be an interesting battle at the box-office, for Christmas festival next month. Though Pongal is expected to witness a three-pronged contest (Superstar Rajinikanth's Kochadaiyaan, Ajith’s Veeran and Vijay's Jilla are slated for release), the last weekend of December could be a big one too.
Venkat Prabhu's Biriyani starring Karthi and Jiiva's Endrendrum Punnagai will hit screens for the festival.
That apart, Dhoom 3 will be releasing in Tamil and Hindi for Christmas on December 20. Dhoom 3 will have Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif playing the antagonists with Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra.
Biriyani is a big film for Karthi, whose recent All In All Azhaguraja flopped, and the hopes are that Venkat Prabhu's magic can resurrect the actor's floundering career.
Meanwhile, it has been a long time since Jiiva had a release and he is pairing up with Trisha for the first time in Endrendrum Punnagai, which is a romantic entertainer with songs by Harris Jayaraj being a highlight.
