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.

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.".
