Ilayathalapathy Vijay‘s upcoming flick ‘Kavalan‘ directed by Siddique is again in trouble.
The Tamil Nadu Theater Owners Association at an emergency meeting in Tiruchi on Thursday has decided “not to extend any support for the release of ‘Kaavalan’. Kaavalan has already obtained ‘U’ certificate and buzz was good on the movie.
A firm decision has been taken by the theater owners that Vijay has to pay for the losses suffered on account of Sura and if not there is no question of Kaavalan releasing.
The film is under terrific pressure by big people in the society for not screening it for this Pongal. Meanwhile Vijay also doesn’t extend his support to solve the issue and the overseas release of the film has run into trouble as the new distributor of the film has not been able to get good screens.
There is a huge impact on theaters due to the failure of ‘Manmadhan Ambu‘ and the theater owners are relied upon ‘Siruthai‘ to cover their losses that occured due to the release of many failure flicks.
If Kaavalan has to release for Pongal all these issues should be sorted out in the next 48 hours and the overseas prints of the film should leave the lab by Monday the least, to ensure the smooth release of the flick.
Let’s see how 2011 turns out for Vijay.
