Amidst all rumours, AVM Saravanan confirmed the release date of the much expected Rajini film Shivaji - the Boss. According to him the film will be scheduled for the release on April 12, just 2 days prior to the Tamil New Year. Sources say that the release date is actually confirmed by the Super Star in accordance with the advise of his astrologer. As per the schedule, the film will be released on Thursday, which is a favourable day for Guru Ragavendra.
The film will be released on the same day all over the World. Sources confirm that more than 600 prints will be taken for Shivaji, for the first time in India. The Telugu version of Shivaji made big business even more than a Chiranjeevi film. AVM will release the Tamil version directly in Kerala. For the first time, AVM officially confirmed that the Kerala rights of the film were sold out for more than Rs. 3 cr, which is an uphill task to reach even for a Mammooty or Lal film!
But nobody is ready to open their mouth about the 'share' of Rajini in Shivaji.
The audio launch of the film will be held on 7th of March. When we asked about the rumours of the pirated DVDs of Shivaji, Saravanan laughed and replied, Don't take these kind of rumours seriously". But still this rumor is going on. Some people claimed that they had seen the pirated version and narrated the film scene by scene!
