Velayudham is being produced and distributed by V Ravichandran under the banner of Aascar Films. The movie is said to be hitting the theatres in Kerala on the same day of the release of Tejabhai and Family. Vijay has a huge fan following in Kerala. So the producer has planned to screen in more than 90 theatres across the state. Experts say that Vijay's film is sure to pose a tough competition to Tejabhai and Family.
Prithviraj's Tejabhai and Family is a romantic comedy film and has been directed by Deepu Karunakaran. Akhila Sasidharan is playing his heroine in it. Velayudham is an action masala film directed by M Raja and it stars Vijay, Hansika Motwani and Genelia D'Souza in lead roles. Since both are much-hyped and much-anticipated movies, it is difficult to say which movie will be successful.
