In what could be a shocking development, Illayathalapathy Vijay's much-awaited Thalaivaa is not releasing in Chennai. Some of the theaters have stopped advance booking.
With two days left for its release, Thalaivaa is having a tough time as some anti-social elements have threatened to ransack the theaters if released. Devi, Kasi, Mayajaal, Sangam, Abirami and a few more theaters were allegedly threatened by the miscreants.
After the advance booking process was stopped, Theater Owners Association from Chennai and Chengalpet had a talk and decided not to release Thalaivaa.
Sources said that Theatre Owner Association member had a meeting in Chennai and sought the government support to release the movie. They also asked government to provide police security for all the cinema halls in Chennai and Chengalpet. Thalaivaa was scheduled to release in more than 500 screens in Tamil Nadu alone.
Now, the issue has become a nightmare for the team and they are in a dilemma whether movie will be released or not. The Theatre Owner Association has demanded police security and government support for the movie release, without which the movie will not be screened.
