Actor Siddharth was keen on having his bilingual Gruham / Aval released on the same day but the plan had to be changed at the last moment.
According to reports doing rounds in tinsel town, Siddharth and team could not obtain the censor certificate for the Telugu version of Gruham on time following which the release had to be postponed.
While the filmâ€™s Tamil version Aval was released on November 3rd amidst much fanfare and has being critically acclaimed, Gruham lies in the cans till now.
Earlier, it was said that the Telugu version would make it to the silver screens on November 10th but now we hear from sources that the film may be out at the theaters on November 17th.
Written jointly by Milind Rau and Siddharth, the film has been directed by the former. Apart from starring in it as the male lead, Siddharth has also bankrolled the film under his banner Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Etaki Entertainment.
Andrea Jeremiah plays the female lead in this film with Atul Kulkarni, Suresh, and Anisha Angelina Victor in the supporting cast. Andrea has had an interesting year with releases like Taramani and Thupparivalan.
The film is about a couple and their new neighbours. It has been declared as the scariest film to come out of Tamil cinema in recent times, overturning the horror comedy genre.
Girishh has set the tunes for this horror flick while Shreyaas Krishna has handled the camera and Lawrence Kishore has edited it. With piracy rearing its ugly head as always, the makers of Gruham are keen on having the film released as early as possible but the censor woes continue.
While the team is waiting for Gruham to be censored, we hear that the makers are contemplating on going ahead with a sequel for it. It may be noted here that the Telugu version of Mersal, Adhrindi, also had to face the same issue with the censor board refusing to certify it on time.
