The release of Puli Murugan, the highly anticipated
Mohanlal movie was postponed multiple times. Reportedly, Puli
Murugan release has been postponed again due to the release of
Mohanlal's Telugu movie Janatha Garage.
If the reports are to be true, the Vysakh directed movie will
not hit the theatres in August second week, as Janatha
Garage is also slated to release in August.
According to the sources, Mohanlal wants to avoid the box office
clash between his two prestigious projects. Janatha Garage, which
is directed by Koratala Siva, stars Telugu star Junior NTR in the
However, Mollywood is not happy with the new development, as the
continuous delay may create a negative impression among the
audiences. Earlier, Mohanlal's Lailaa O Lailaa had also
gone through a similar situation.
If Puli Murugan does not hit the theatres in
August, it will affect the release of Mohanlal's Onam release
Oppam. The team may be forced to push the release of the
Vysakh movie to October or November.
Otherwise, Oppam will release for the Navarathri season
and Puli Murugan will hit the theatres as Mohanlal's Onam
release. We hope that the release date of both the films will be
officially announced soon.
