Ajith starrer Viswasam releases today and the film faces some stiff competition as it releases alongside Rajinikanths Petta. Viswasam also stars Nayanthara, Yogi Babu, Vivek, Robo Shankar, Thambi Ramaiah and Kovai Sarala among others.
Viswasams trailer showcased all the elements of a successful masala film – flying men, dance numbers and a very angry, moustache-twirling Ajith. The actor has teamed up with director Siva for the fourth time after delivering hits like Veeram, Vedalam and Vivegam.
Ajith is regarded as the king of openings after delivering films like Villain, Citizen, Vaali, Billa, Mankatha and Aarambam. But this time, the film will have to share screens and it is yet to be seen how it affects Viswasams opening day collection.
Petta director Karthik Subbaraj took to Twitter to wish luck to Viswasam.

Talking about the Petta and Viswasam clash, Ruban Mathivanan, managing director of GK Cinemas, said, “Its not unusual at all. Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan have had their films release the same day. And so has Vijay and Ajith. But it is definitely good to have a solo release. For instance, Ajiths last outing Vivegam got an excellent opening because no other film got released that day. Even in future, I would not be surprised if we have a clash between multiple films. The more, the better.”
