No release of Thalaivaa in TN

Thalaivaa starring Vijay has released worldwide except Tamilnadu today. This has shocked millions of Vijay fans across the State.

Tiicket were refunds at the counters. If legal wrangles and bomb threats on Wednesday caused doubts about whether Vijays Eid release Thalaivaa would open, the twists and turns caused by distributors and theatre owners made things a whole lot worse on Thursday.

Till 10 pm, both groups remained locked inside the Producers Council conference room debating whether the film could possibly be released.

Kamal Haasans Vishwaroopam was delayed after protests from Muslim groups and had to go through several legal tussles and censor cuts before releasing two weeks later. Sources close to the producer have indicated that the release date may be decided post August 12.

The good news for the producers is that the film opened in theatres across Singapore, Malaysia and is set to open in the UK and US as well.
