The film went to censor earlier today (December 6). The board officials were impressed by the content and the performance of the lead starts, and praised the makers for making a clean film. Thus, paving way for its release on December 13.
Earlier, Kumki had been cleared with NOC from the Animal Welfare Board of India. Animals used in the film including Elephant have been treated well. Hence, they did not have any objection for the clearance of the forthcoming Tamil flick.
However, Kumki is the launchpad of Vikram Prabhu - the grandson of legendary Sivaji Ganeshan and son of Sivaji Prabhu. He will be seen in the role of a rustic mahout in the upcoming movie, which also features Bangalore-based girl Lakshmi Menon in the female lead role. The film is produced by Subash Chandra Bose of Thirupathi Brothers.
