Chennai: Seven Tamil films are vying for screens for August 11 release. They are Podhuvaga Emmanasu Thangam, Thappu Thanda, Maayavan, Kurangu Bommai, Magalir Mattum, Sathya and Naan Aanaiyitaal.

There's a mad rush for release on August 11 following the postponement of Ajith Kumar's highly anticipated Tamil actioner Vivegam from August 10 to August 24.

"The postponement of Vivegam has come as a big blow for other films. Due to the major shuffle in the release of Vivegam, films that were long due for release are aiming for August 11 as it gives them five days' window keeping in mind the holiday on Independence Day," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.

While Podhuvaga Emmanasu Thangam, Thappu Thanda, Maayavan, Kurangu Bommai and Naan Aanaiyitaal have officially confirmed they are hitting the screens on August 11, Magalir Mattum and Sathya are yet to make an official announcement.

The industry grapevine is that Dhanush's VIP 2 might also join the August 11 race.

The official release date of VIP 2 will be announced on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

"The Tamil version of VIP 2 is likely to release on August 11. The Hindi and Telugu versions might release a week later on August 18," Trinath said.
