Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Puli overcame its first major test yesterday as it was awarded a clean 'U' certificate by the censor board officials. What more, the fantasy flick seems to have impressed the members of CBFC, according to a report.
Sharing his thoughts to Behindwoods, Shibu Thameens has told, "Myself, Shibu Thameens and Chimbu Deven are just out of the censor office and we are immensely happy as producers, to get a clean 'U' certificate with minor cuts. The censor board appreciated our VFX work and mentioned that it is a perfect family entertainer".
The appreciation Puli has received from the selected few has come across as a huge relief to the entire team. The fact that the censor board members have mentioned about the film's VFX indicates the efforts put in by the team to get the visual effects right.
It is to be noted that the CG and VFX works of Puli were done in several studios across different countries like Russia, Ukraine, Denmark, Armenia, Ireland and of course India.
Now that the film has cleared its major hurdle, the makers should look to release the much anticipated film on October 1st as expected.
