Vijay's highly anticipated fantasy-adventure drama, Puli was slated to release worldwide today. But as per the latest reports, Puli has not released in Kerala. Sources suggest that the movie is facing license issues; which resulted in the delay.
The license issue is a result of the income tax raids which were held in the residences of the team members, including Vijay and director Chimbudevan and the producers Shibu Thameens and PT Selva Kumar.
The team members immediately paid the income tax money; but the license has not been allowed yet. The news hasn't gone well with the Vijay fans of Kerala, who were eagerly waiting to watch the movie.
According to the reports, the highly upset Vijay fans have attacked the theatres in Trivandrum city. If things fall in place, the first show of Puli will start by 12 pm today, in all the major releasing centres of Kerala.
Puli is a highly ambitious project for lead actor Vijay and director Chimbudevan. The movie marks the comeback of veteran actress Sridevi into Tamil cinema, after a very long hiatus. Kannada actor Sudeep plays the antagonist.
Shruthi Haasan and Hansika Motwani will essay the female leads opposite Vijay. The rest of the star cast includes Prabhu, Vijayakumar, Thambi Ramaiah, Sathyan, Robo Shankar, Aadukalam Naren, Nandita Shwetha etc.
