Kaththi has taken a beating as an unidentified mob has attacked two leading multiplexes in Chennai namely Sathyam Cinemas and Woodlands Theater late in the night following an official announcement on the release of the film Kaththi worldwide including Tamil Nadu on October 22nd.
At around 11:45 pm, a group of people allegedly shouting anti-Kaththi slogans have deliberately destroyed the theatres by flinging petrol bombs, stones and other sharp objects. Following these unforeseen incident, theatre owners are most likely to meet up today to take a final decision on the movie's release tomorrow.
Many precautions have been taken by the producers so far to ensure a smooth release of the most anticipated film of the year on Diwali day including one of the producer, Karunamurthy's meeting with the city's Police commissioner to protect public from the group of people threatening to stage a protest against the release of the movie.
The producers had also concluded that the talks with the protesting group were fruitful and the movie will be released hassle free. However, all that looks like have gone down the drain as last night's attack from reportedly the fringe group have been severe creating panic among theatre owners who might have to rethink about releasing Kaththi. They have also said that if Kaththi is thrown out of Diwali race then they will have to move Vishal's Poojai to the main screens.
Kaththi has been in news ever since the movie has gone on floors but the latest news making headlines about the movie will not spell happiness for Vijay's fan. If the protests continue to flow then, Kaththi will have to remain in its scabbard for this Diwali which will spell disaster to the movie's producers and its fans in Tamil Nadu especially in Chennai.
