Get ready for an exciting cinematic treat because Sriram Raghavan’s upcoming film “Merry Christmas” is all set to bring together the dynamic duo of Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi for the first time ever! And the best part? The movie is going to be a genre-defying tale that will hit both Tamil and Hindi theatres on December 15th. The makers have already got us hooked on the retro-style poster.
But here’s the twist that’s making fans even more curious—Sriram Raghavan spilled the beans about the film’s unique twist. In a recent media interview, he revealed that “Merry Christmas” will actually be two films in one! Yes, you heard that right. The Hindi version will have Vijay Sethupathi, Katrina Kaif, and a child actress named Pari Sharma in prominent roles, along with a few other actors. Meanwhile, the Tamil version will also star Vijay Sethupathi, Katrina Kaif, and Pari Sharma, but with different actors in other key roles.
So, why did he decide to make two versions of the film? The decision to make a Tamil version came from Vijay Sethupathi’s immense popularity down South. Sriram Raghavan wanted to give his fans there a treat, and he saw this as a perfect opportunity to create two distinct experiences for the audience. He clarified that about “95%” of the two versions are the same, but the language and certain character modifications ensure that they don’t feel like mere dubbed films.
The unusual pairing of Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif has raised eyebrows, but Sriram Raghavan assured that it was a deliberate choice to go for an offbeat pairing that suits the storyline perfectly. Both characters in the movie are intriguing, and he believes that when the audience watches the film, they’ll understand why he cast them.
So, mark your calendars for December 15th, and get ready to witness the magic of “Merry Christmas” in both Hindi and Tamil versions. With such an exciting concept and a stellar cast, this film is definitely going to be a memorable cinematic experience!
