Sources in the tinsel town indicate that Venkat Prabhu’s Biriyani could be served sooner than expected. The film was touted to be released for Pongal 2014 but now we get to hear that it might be released on December 20th, 2013. The Christmas weekend would be the apt time to release this Karthi starrer, opine the producers, say sources as Ajith’s Veeram and Vijay’s Jilla are competing for the Pongal slot.

With Karthi’s Diwali release All in All Azhagu Raja turning out to be a damp squib, the star is under a lot of pressure to come out with a big hit. Will the Christmas release help this Biriyani?
