Actor Vishal on Tuesday announced the release date of his upcoming film Action. The movie is scheduled to open in cinemas worldwide on November 15.
The film will clash at the box office with Vijay Sethupathi’s Sanga Tamizhan. It was earlier scheduled to hit the screens for Diwali along with Vijay’s Bigil and Karthi’s Kaithi. However, Sanga Tamizhan pulled out of the race due to obvious circumstances. Bigil alone was released in 700 screens and more than 250 screens were taken by Kaithi. The screen-crunch forced the makers of Sanga Tamizha to look for another favourable release date. It is now set to hit the screens on November 15.
Written and directed by Vijay Chandar, Sanga Tamizhan is set in a rural backdrop. It is the exact opposite of what the makers of Action have promised to offer, which is a high-octane action thriller that takes place in exotic foreign locations.
Nivetha Pethuraj, Raashi Khanna, Ananya have played key roles in Sanga Tamizhan, which has Vijay Sethupathi playing the role of a farmer, the flavour of the season.

Bankrolled by producer R.Ravindran of Trident Arts, composer Hiphop Tamizha has scored music for Action.
