Selvaraghavan is taking his own sweet time in completing his pet project Aayirathil Oruvan, which he hopes will be a cult hit in Indian cinema, just as the Indiana Jones series was in Hollywood. Aayirathil Oruvan has been in the making for nearly two years now, with periodic release rumours. Even recently, it was said that the movie was to be a 2009 Diwali [October 17th 2009] release, after missing its earlier announced release date of Independence Day [August 15th]!
Coming up in November is Children’s Day and since the movie fits in the action adventure genre,this would be a good date to release it. But will that happen? At this point, even Selva is not too sure, because the post production work is taking longer than he anticipated. Re-recording for the movie is on at a reputed studio in London while graphics work is happening in Mumbai. With still one-third of the work remaining, it appears the wait will continue till Pongal 2010 [January 14th] and it may release with Vettaikaran! With Selva, you never know!
