The makers of the film have announced the news on Twitter and wrote, "Makkalukku Kondattam, Rasigargalukku Tiruvila-12.12.12 Superstar Rajni-in pirandhanal anru 3D Sivaji-in super release!" The movie will hit the screens at the first phase in Tamil Nadu alone. The film will have a large release in multiplexes.
However, around 400 people worked in multiple shifts to convert the film to 3D and completed the film in August but the superstar asked the movie bosses to delay the release, as he was not keen on troubling the business of Maattrraan and Thuppakki by competing with Sivaji.
Sivaji is a political-thriller directed by Shankar. It had AR Rahman's music and it was produced by MS Guhan-M Sarvanan. The movie featured Shriya Saran and Suman in the key roles. The movie tells the story of a NRI, who comes to India to do something good to the society. But falls into the trap of politician's devised plan to lose out all his properties.
