Malaikottai Vaaliban will go head-to-head with Fighter
Malaikottai Vaalibaan will not be having a solo release at the theatres. While the Mohanlal film does make for one of 2024's much-anticipated projects, also part of that lineup is Siddharth Anand's Fighter. Both films are slated for a release on January 25. While the former is a period drama, the latter is an aerial action extravaganza.
Malaikottai Vaaliban just saw through the release of its third single whereas the makers of Fighter only recently unveiled the Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, and Anil Kapoor-led film's action-packed trailer. It will be interesting to see which of the two films will come out on top of the box office clash.
