After much anticipation, the makers of Merry Christmas finally announced the release date of the Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi starrer. Directed by Sriram Raghavan, the upcoming bi-lingual film is slated to release in Hindi and Tamil on December 15, 2023. Speaking of the same, Raghavan has clarified that the Hindi version of Merry Christmas is different from its Tamil Version. In fact, the forthcoming flick is not one but two films.
“Merry Christmas is not one, it’s two films,” clears director Sriram Raghavan; adds Hindi and Tamil versions are 95 per cent the same
In an interview with News18, the critically acclaimed director asserted, “It’s not one film, it’s two films. There is a Hindi film, which has Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif and one child along with a few other characters. There is a Tamil film with the same Vijay Sethupathi, Katrina and the child, and the other actors are different. So I wanted to make a Tamil film also since Vijay is a very acclaimed actor in the South and I thought it would be just good for us to make two versions of this film.”
He further explained, “They are broadly the same, 95 per cent they are the same but of course, language changes and some characters also I wanted to change so that it doesn’t look like a dubbed film.” Raghavan added, “I am a Tamilian myself so this is one chance so let me also try to make a Tamil film so this is two in one kind of film.”
