Vikram has wrapped up Vijay Chander’s Sketch recently. The film’s makers have started post production and are hoping to release the film in the next two months. Speculations suggest that the film may release in October and give competition to Vijay’s Mersel.

Mersel is one of the most anticipated festive releases this year. Sketch will see Vikram in a mass north Chennai avatar similar to his look in Gemini. Both films are expected to do well with their mass commercial feel.

It remains to be seen if these films will go head to head. While Mersel team have confirmed the film’s release awhile back, there is no official confirmation from Sketch makers. Vikram and Vijay have clashed on Diwali twice before – 12 years back when Sivakasi and Maja released for Diwali 2005 and Thirumalai and Pithamagan -Diwali 2004​.

Before that their films Tamizhan and Gemini released on Tamil New Year 2002 and Puthiya Geethai and Kadhal Sadugudu on Tamil New Year 2003.
