The producers are eyeing the long weekend of Good Friday (April 3), say traders. However, we have to wait and see how many will stay in the race as many could opt out to avoid clashes.

We have to note that the makers of "Uttama Villain" and "Komban" initially planned a Pongal release, but backed out to avoid clash with Shankar's "I" and Vishal's "Aambala".
