Velaikkaaran gets postponedSep 8, 2017 JB
Sivakarthikeyan’s Velaikkaran directed by Mohan Raja and produced by 24 AM Studios was scheduled to release for Dusshera weekend on the 29th of September. But an announcement from the production side indicates that the film is getting postponed to December and would be a Christmas 2017 release.
The press note says, “Dear All, 24AM STUDIOS has a policy of honoring commitments and making films with utmost care in quality. Our film, "Velaikkaran" starring Sivakarthikeyan, Nayanthara, Fahadh Faasil and others, is in its post-production stage and two songs are yet to be picturised. After the great success of Thani Oruvan, director Mohan Raja and the team feel even more responsible in delivering the best and hence, are in the process of fine tuning every aspect of the film. Also the new online procedure of obtaining the Censor Certificate takes 3 to 4 weeks time.
Owing to these multiple reasons we are unable to release the film on 29th September as planned. We sincerely apologise to each and every one of you for this delay. We think it is our duty to explain to you the reasons for the delay and hence this open letter.
This being a big budget film we are waiting for the next festival period for the release. With a few big releases already scheduled for this Diwali in October, and with no big festival in November, we have no choice but to wait till December. So, based on the distributors' and exhibitors' request, we plan to release the film on 22"a December 2017, during Christmas Holidays. Our sincere apologies again to all the fans and audience, for making you wait longer, but we are sure we will compensate by assuring you one of the best entertainers of the year. Seeking your massive support as always”. Click the Movie button below for more info:
