Gypsy directed by Raju Murugan stars Jiiva and Natasha Singh in lead roles. The film has been lying in the cans as it faced issues with the Censor board. Now the makers have announced that the film is all set to release on January 24.
Though the film was wrapped up long back, it didn't get through the censor formality as the censor board advocated several cuts following which the issue was taken to the Tribunal. Reports are that there are some scenes in the film that resemble the issues that happened in the Yogi Adithyanath government in Uttar Pradesh and that is the reason behind the Censor board’s disapproval. Finally, the film was awarded 'A' certificate with limited cuts and mutes.
Director Raju Murugan made his directorial debut with the critically acclaimed film Cuckoo and then went on to direct Joker, which fetched him the Award for Best Feature Film in Tamil at the 64th National Film Awards.
The film also stars Natasha Singh, Lal Jose, Sunny Wayne and Susheela Raman. This film marks the debut of Lal Jose and Sunny Wayne in Tamil cinema.
