Suresh Gopi starrer Pathaaka was supposed to get released before the elections that were held this year. But due to unavoidable reasons, the release of the movie got delayed and the team is now running helter and skelter for new dates. They have also changed some parts of the movie. The reason cited by them was that the movie had some scenes related to the elections and now that the elections are over, they do not need the scenes. Some scenes have been canned on Suresh Gopi who appears as a minister. A song was also canned recently with Navya Nair.
