The entire film world is stunned with the massive success of superstar Rajini's Shivaji. Many are yet to recover from the Shivaji mania. Many producers have postponed their films' release to at least 3 weeks after the release of Shivaji. Long queues can still be seen in front of many theaters in the city where Shivaji is currently running.
In the aftermath of the Shivaji hurricane, many producers are hesitant to release their films, citing non-availability of theaters as the reason. But Praveen Kanth, the director turned hero has somehow managed to release his film Thullal in some theaters today.
Praveen Kant, the director of films like Rakshakan, Star, and Jodi, is turning into a hero with Thullal, a film about marriage and marital discord. The film was in the making for long, and the producers had a long drawn out battle with the censors for depicting sexy scenes of Mumbai glamour dolls Gurlin Chopra and Sonika.
After the press screening of the film, director Praveen Kanth met the media at Andhra Club. He said: "I'm proud to be the first one daring to come up with a release after the tumultuous box-office response to Shivaji. The highlight of the film is Vivek's comedy track and composer Dhina's music. I fought a protracted battle with the censor board before getting the certificate. But one will appreciate my rationale behind depicting those scenes after watching the film."
