SKT Studios, the production company responsible for fabricating Ilayathalapathy Vijay and director Chimbu Deven's magnum opus Puli, has officially confirmed that the fantasy thriller will be postponed by a couple of weeks, making October 1st its new release date.
SKT Studios wrote on its social networking page, "1st OCTOBER, 2015 #Puli in Theatres :)".
The Vijay starrer which was supposed to hit the big screen all over the world on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturthi (September 17th) is said to have been postponed because of its extensive post production works which includes the film's VFX.
Though the delay is allegedly aimed at improving the visual quality of the film which subsequently will enhance the expectancy of movie goers, the news has come across as a disappointment to many, especially Vijay fans.
The postponement has also set in motion a number of events in Kollywood. With September 17th ready to be grabbed and used, many small budget films will release on that very day in place of Puli.
Also, September 17th could witness some important announcements and the release of an all important first look poster that's being awaited by millions, according to the latest report.
