It’s Salman Khan Vs Ponniyin Selvan-2 Next Year; Who would win?

Filmmaker Mani Ratnam announces his second magnum opus film and its release date. Ponniyin Selvan-2 will be released next year, and now it’s looking to be a potential threat to Salman Khan’s Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan at the box office.

Ponniyin Selvan-2 announcement 

Tamil Filmmaker Mani Ratnam will be back in 2023 with the sequel of Ponniyin Selvan-1 released worldwide in theatres on September 30, 2022. The announcement for PS-2 was made on December 28, 2022. The makers have announced that the sequel will head to the silver screens on April 28, 2023.


The teaser shows a peek of Aditya Karikalan (Vikram) sitting in front of a Kali statue whereas Arulmozhi Varman (Jayam Ravi) is walking amongst several monks. Vandhiyathevan (Karthi) is wounded in the forest whereas Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is seen through a mirror reflection. Lyca Productions tweeted, “Let’s get those swords in the air as we await the 28th of April 2023!”

Salman’s film

Meanwhile, for the unversed, Salman’s KKBKKJ is scheduled to release on Eid 2023, which falls on the 21st of April 2023. The Kollywood film releasing at the April end too seems to be a potential threat to Salman Khan. Even though not in a clash, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan is going to face a major competitor in the form of Mani Ratnam‘s Ponniyin Selvan 2, one week later of its release.

One aspect we can’t ignore is that nowadays the audience in the Hindi belt is more prone towards South content as compared to Bollywood routine masala entertainers. So, as of now, it is for sure that Ponniyin Selvan 2 will cause an impact on Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’s box office. The only fascinating thing to see will be to what extent PS 2 injuries Salman Khan’s film.
