Reports say that Vikram’s Sketch which was earlier touted to be a Dussehra release is now eyeing Diwali. The film is directed by Vaalu fame Vijay Chander and stars Tamannaah in the lead role.

If the film releases on Diwali, it will go head to head with Vijay’s Mersel. Mersel is directed by Their fame Atlee and stars Samantha, Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menon in the lead roles. Vijay plays a triple role in the film and the music is composed by A R Rahman.

​Mersel will give stiff competition to Sketch if both release on the same day. It should be noted that Vikram and Vijay has clashed several times before this. The last time they released movies together was 12 years back when Sivakasi and Maja released for Diwali 2005. Other films were Tamizhan and Gemini -Tamil New Year 2002, Puthiya Geethai and Kadhal Sadugudu- Tamil New Year 2003 and Thirumalai and Pithamagan -Diwali 2004​.
