It has happened again. Announcing a date of a movie/audio release and postponing seems to have become a trend in Kollywood to get publicity. In recent times, we have seen a lot of movies getting delayed for some reasons and now Vijay's Thuppakki has also followed the same path, as its release has been delayed by three months.
The latest buzz is that Thuppakki, which was supposed to release on August 15, has been postponed to Diwali. It means the movie has been delayed for three more months. Though there is no official news, a confirmed source has claimed that the makers of the film have decided to delay, as three songs are yet to be shot.
The movie has earlier garnered a good publicity when it was unofficially announced by the makers of the film that it would hit the screens on August 15. It became a matter of debate on online forums when it was revealed that it would clash against Surya's Maatraan, which was also supposed to release on the same date. Nonetheless, both the movies have been postponed.
Traders say that to cash in on festive season, the makers of Thuppakki have decided to release for Diwali. Meanwhile, the movie, which is facing title issue, will have its first look release shortly. The film is produced by Kalaipuli S Dhanu, also features Kajal Aggarwal, Vidyut Jamal, Akshara Gowda and others in the cast.
