Earlier UTV Motion Pictures were planning to release Vettai on January 12, two days before Nanban to get the early bird advantage.
However trade bigwigs shot down the idea, as they felt it will be “Pongal previous”.
There is a belief that if a film releases earlier than the festival day, it will not open well, as people are busy preparing and shopping for the festivities.
So Vettai got pushed by two days from January 12 to 14, and will now take on Nanban.
