Salman Khan's forthcoming Bollywood movie "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" is being dubbed in Tamil as "Meymarandhen Paaraayo". Both the versions will simultaneously be released on 12 November worldwide.
This also means that the dubbed version of "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" will clash with other Diwali releases like "Vedalam" and "Thoongavanam". Ajith and Kamal Haasan's Tamil movies are releasing on 10 November.
"Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" is one of the biggest Bollywood movies of 2015. As the film is targeted at family audience, the makers have decided to dub the movie in Tamil, which will be distributed by Fox Studios in the state. It has to be noted that the flick is also being dubbed in Telugu as "Prem Leela".
The film is written and directed by Sooraj R. Barjatya, who is popularly known for making "Hum Aapke Hain Koun!". Sonam Kapoor plays the female lead along with Neil Nitin Mukesh, who has become a popular name among Tamil audience with Vijay's "Kaththi". Anupam Kher, Swara Bhaskar and others are in the cast.
"Vedalam" is the most-awaited movie of Ajith in 2015. The Tamil movie, which has Shruthi Haasan and Lakshmi Menon in key roles, is an action-packed emotional entertainer. SIruthai Siva has written and directed the movie, which will get maximum screens among the Diwali releases in Tamil Nadu.
Kamal Haasan starrer "Thoongavanam" has been wrapped up in a very short time. This will be the third release of the actor after "Uttama Villain" and "Papanasam". It is a noir-thriller, which is inspired by French movie "Nuit Blanche". Trisha Krishnan, Prakash Raj, Kishore, Sampath Raj and others are in the cast.
Even though there are three releases, the main battle at the Tamil box office will be between "Vedalam" and "Thoongavanam".
