Vijay's fans are not happy these days. It is because their star is
not getting enough theatres to screen his forthcoming
Velayudham. The worrying factor is that even the cinema
hall owners, who had signed the deal to release the movie, are not
allotting big screens for him rather they are opting it for other
big release, Surya's 7aam Arivu.
In their first step to protest the theatre owners' decision to
sideline Velayudham, the fans staged a protest against
Chennai"s Devi Cineplex's decision to allot smaller screens for
Vijay's movie. A group of 100 members assembled at the theatre
premises and shouted slogans against the management.
Devi Cineplex has four screens. Among those, Devi and Devi
Paradise, which are big and well-equipped with latest technologies,
have been allotted to 7aam Arivu. Whereas the remaining
two screens - Devi Kala and Devi Bala – that are considered to be
the smaller screens, have been left for Velayudham,
Vijay, Genelia D'Souza and Hansika Motwani starrer
Velayudham is releasing in 38 screens in Chennai. Whereas,
Surya and Shruti Hassan's movie 7aam Arivu is hitting the
theatres in 59 screens.
