While big movies locking horns against each other is a normal occurence in the entertainment industry, very rarely do we see the clash of movies of the same actor at the box office. Young star Jayasurya's two Malayalam movies are set to rock the box offices on their release on the same day in August. 

Jayasurya is awaiting the release of the horror comedy entertainer, "Pretham", and action thriller, "Inspector Dawood Ibrahim" (IDI) which are scheduled to hit the screens on August 12. Interestingly, both the films will have an all India release on the same day, unlike many other movies, which often get released outside Kerala after a week or more of its initial release.

The Sajid Yahiya-directed film will have a worldwide release on August 12 and will be distributed by Eros International. The movie has been bankrolled by the production house in association with Magic Lantern. Meanwhile, Fox Star Studios will distribute director Ranjith Sankar's seventh project, "Pretham," all over India on the same day itself. 

Both the Jayasurya movies have been hitting the headlines since they went on floors. The trailers of the movies have already raised the expectations of the audience with positive response pouring in from all quarters. While the actor will be seen as sub-inspector Dawood Ibrahim in "IDI," he plays the role of a mentalist in the Ranjith movie.

"Pretham," which is the production venture of Jayasurya and Ranjith under the banner of Dreams N Beyond, also stars Aju Varghese, Sharafudheen and Govind Padmasoorya in main roles.
