Several Siva Karthikeyan and Nayanthara fans would be left disappointed as the official announcement is out that Velaikkaranâ€™s release has been postponed by three months. The film was touted to be a Dusshera release with the release date scheduled for September 29. However, a press note from the makers of Velaikkaran makes it clear that its release has been postponed to December 22. Interestingly, this is the first time Siva and Nayan are pairing up on the silver screen.
Sources in the know say that the filmmakers are not in a hurry to release a half-baked product considering the fact that both Siva as well as Nayan have a huge fan following. Further, Velaikkaran will mark Malayalam star Fahadh Faasilâ€™s debut in the Tamil film industry. The filmâ€™s post production and censors will take at least three months to be completed which is the reason for the delay, states the press note.
According to the press note: â€śThe post-production is underway and we are yet to film two songs. After the great success of Thani Oruvan, Mohan Raja and team feel even more responsible for delivering their best. Also, the new online procedure of obtaining the censor certificate takes three to four weeks. Owing to these multiple reasons, we are not able to release the film on September 29 as planned.â€ť
Directed by Mohan Raja aka Jayam Raja, Velaikkaran has been produced by RD Raja under the banner 24 AM Studios. The filmâ€™s star cast also includes Prakash Raj, RJ Balaji, Sathish, Sneha, Robo Shankar, Vijay Vasanth, Yogi Babu and Charlie. The film has music composed by Anirudh Ravichander and Ramji has wielded the camera with the editing done by Vivek Harshan.
