Paayum Puli is a reasonably high budget action entertainer and with the release of any such prominent Tamil films comes a controversy of some sort.
With regard to Vishal's upcoming movie, it's a group of
theatre owners headed by Mr. Panneerselvam, the possessor of Rohini
theater, who are up against the release of the film which is
scheduled to make its way into theatres on September 4th.
The reason behind their protest is said to be the undying issue
of Rajinikanth's Lingaa. Vendhar Movies, the
production unit of Paayum Puli, were responsible of
distributing Lingaa in some parts of Tamil Nadu.
Claiming that Vendhar Movies has not taken care of the losses
incurred by theatre owners because of Lingaa's debacle,
owners of many playhouses have decided to stall the release of
Paayum Puli until the scores are settled.
Reacting to the ongoing protest, Tamil Film Producers' Council
(TFPC) released a press statement in which they had requested the
Tamil Nadu government to act against such protests so that they are
not repeated in the future.
They had also notified that no Tamil films will be released from
September 4th and the films that's been playing right now will also
be ceased should the state government fail to react.

The Paayum Puli actor, who is also eyeing the
access to run 'Nadigar Sangam' took to Twitter to voice out his
opinion he said, "Y do u ppl bring out issues on da last day insted
of solving it months bfore Unethical.Y stop releases jus for 1
distributor n few theatres".
Will Paayum Puli Pounce On 4th?
Surprisingly, Vishal also confirmed the release of his film
which contradicts with the TFPC's statement. He said, "Yes
#PaayumPuli wil release as per schedule on Sep 4th worldwide both
languages. Hard work will always pay off. God bless.".
Will The Government React?
It is to be seen if the government comes up with a solution to
put an end to such issues once and for all. The final decision on
the release of all other Tamil movies scheduled to release
throughout the month is expected shortly.
Meanwhile Suseenthiran Aims Big
Meanwhile, director of Paayum Puli Suseenthiran,
has said in one of his interviews that he has already finished
working on some scripts that would suit the persona of actors like
Ajith and Vijay.
Waiting For The Opportunity
He has also confirmed that he is waiting for the right time to
approach such big league actors and that he would collaborate with
either Ajith or Vijay pretty soon.

Seiveer and Pandiya Naadu under his belt,
Suseenthiran's association with either Ajith or Vijay would create
