By: Settu Shankar Thursday, August 09, 2007 It's quite a shocking news to all of Mammootty's ardent fans. It looks like Mammootty will not have an Onam release for the first time in 11 years! The shooting of the actor's proposed Onam release Nasrani has been delayed due to rains and frequent strikes called by various political parties in the 'Land of Hartals'.
Theatres which had charted his Nasrani as their Onam release have been informed by the distributor Marakkar Films that it's release has been postponed to Ramzan, and will now release only on October 12.
Sources from the actor's side assured that his other film Ore Kadal will be screened in the theaters which had been already booked for Nasrani to avoid disappointing his fans. The posters of the film Ore Kadal are already put up in major towns.
But there is still no news from the producer of Ore Kadal about its release for Onam. It may be recalled that a writer had filed a case against the film last month, and it will come up for hearing in the court next week.
