Here is the first official news about the release of Shivaji, the magnum opus of the industry. Director Shankar has completed the graphics and other minor correction work for the film and is preparing himself to unleash the biggest extravaganza of the year.
The AVM campus has announced that the film will be released most probably on 26th of May. When the correspondent contacted A.V.M. Saravanan, the producer of the film, 'We have planned to release the film Shivaji around the last week of this month. Shankar and his team have been working on it and it is nearing completion...' he told.
Shivaji is not only special for the viewers but it is very special for the super star Rajinikanth too. This is his 100th straight film in his career spanning most of the Indian languages. He has so far acted in a total of 173 films including the remakes and dubbings. In Tamil only he has completed 99 films and Shivaji will be the 100 th in the row.
AVM has erected its first vinyl hoarding for the film at Gemini fly over junction at Anna Salai, Chennai from yesterday. The superstar looks stunning in blue jeans and brown blazer with stylish black glasses. It is needless to talk about the excitement and joy of the fans of the actor. Even passer-byes who have a look at this hoarding for few minutes are surprised by the looks of the 'Basha of Kollywood'. Similar hoardings are expected all over Chennai shortly.
