The makers of Ajith's "Veeram" have confirmed that the film will hit screens during the Pongal festival. However, an exact release date has not yet been revealed. It is likely to release on 10th October, a few days ahead of the harvest festival.

Vijaya Productions, producers of the film, have assured that the Ajith starrer will be a real treat for fans. Ajith will don a rusty look in the film, which audiences haven't seen in the past few years. "Thala" (Ajith is fondly referred by this name) has been doing stylish roles since "Billa" released in 2007. His traditional attire combined with his trademark salt and pepper hair gives him the typical mass hero look in "Veeram".

Ajith is reportedly playing a lively character in "Veeram" that is sure to impress his fans. The film's shooting is expected to be completed in a few days. The makers have already begun the post-production work, in order to release the film on the scheduled date.

Directed by "Siruthai" Siva, "Veeram" has an ensemble star cast including Tamannah, Santhanam, Bala, Vidharth, Munish, Suhail, Ramesh Khanna, Appukutty, Nadodigal Abhinaya, Devadharshini, Vidhyulekha Raman and Pradeep Rawat among others. The film's technical crew includes Vetry (Cinematographer), Milan (Art director), Kasi Viswanathan (Editor), Selva (Stunt master), Dinesh (Choreographer) and Devi Sri Prasad (Music).

Expectations for "Veeram" are sky high thanks to Ajith's star power and the film's mass teaser [Check Video]. His recently-released film "Arrambam" has been doing fantastic business at the box office. The film gave Ajith his best ever opening. This has raised the expectations for "Veeram". It remains to be seen if the Siva directorial will turn to be another hit in Ajith's career. 

The action entertainer will not have a solo release and is likely to face strong competition from other biggies. Vijay's "Jilla" is expected to release during the Pongal festival period. A few days ago, "Kochadaiiyaan" co-producer confirmed that the Rajinikanth starrer is gearing up for a 10 January release. With three big releases, there will be a huge battle for screens. But it will be a real treat for cinema lovers to see their favourite stars taking on each other at the box office.
