'Life is like a cycle. Sorrow and happiness is the part of this cycle' is the philosophical punch dialogue often used by Vijay in most of his films. The actor has gone through the same experiences in his career. This very dialogue used by him many a time has become a reality once again. His film Azhagiya Tamil Magan has run into trouble thus leaving its hopes of Diwali release hanging in the air.
The distributor for the film, Pyramid Saimira, has withdrawn from the film and has explained its actions to the Tamil Film Producers Council. Their withdrawal has left Vijay and the crew of the film in shock. The reason that they gave for the withdrawal was that the producer Appachan was not likely to get back on his feet financially by the time the time would come for it s release in Diwali. The producer still didn"t pay Vijay the full amount for the film. SA Chandrashekaran asked the producer to clear his dues with the actor.
No theatre has been booked for the film so far with most theatres opting for other films. But the films postproduction work is going in AR Rehman"s studio. When we inquired at Pyramid Saimira, they said, “So far, our company's name appeared only in the promos of the film as the distributor. Talks are going on to solve the issue amicably. We hope that things will work out positively and we are trying our level best to release the film for Diwali."
