The release date of Superstar Rajinikanth's magnum opus Shivaji is postponed again to May 26. This time, it is due to the pending background music to be composed by music director A.R.Rahman. Moreover, graphics work for a few scenes are left undone.
Though the movie has been produced in a grand manner, the director has taken lots of time in post production stage, which is almost equal to the time he spent for its shooting. Initially, the film was scheduled for release on Tamil New Year Day on April 14. Shankar couldn't complete its shooting on time. So, producer AVM Saravanan announced that it would be released on May 17 without fail. But the truth is that post production works are still going on and A.R.Rahman is yet to complete a major segment of its background score.
Sources from AVM revealed that Shankar is willing to release the film on June 8. However, the producer has pressurised him to release it on May 26. The bad news is that pundits in Kollywood are expecting change in its release date. This bilingual film starring actress Shreya opposite Rajini will be released simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu.
