This Tamil New Year (14 April) will be an eventful day for Vijay and Ajith's fans as there will be some important developments with regard to their forthcoming projects, "Puli" and "Thala 56".

It is by now well-known that "Thala 56" will hit the floors on 14 April. Now, the latest buzz is that the first look of Vijay's forthcoming "Puli" will be released on the same day. If the rumours are to be believed, Ilayathalapathy's team is now planning to surprise the actor's fans by releasing the posters.

Vijay's fans are eagerly waiting for the first look of the flick. It is the first time that the actor will be seen in a fantasy-adventure film. Hence people are eager to see how the "Nanban" actor will look in rich avatars.

So far, sixty percent of the shooting for "Puli" is complete and the team is working at a fast pace to wrap up the shooting in time. They have set the tentative deadline for its release on 22 June, to coincide with Vijay's birthday.

But there is also possibility of "Puli", which has Sudeep, Sridevi Kapoor, Shruti Haasan and Hansika Motwani in the key roles, being pushed to Diwali if the post-production works consume more time than expected.

On the other end, "Thala 56" will kick-off on Tamil New Year without much fanfare. The team has already roped in Anirudh Ravichander to compose music and the cast and crew have already been finalised. But the makers are yet to announce it.

It is reported that Shruti Haasan has bagged this project as well. The makers want to complete the shooting by the end of this year. The movie may release around Pongal.
