The release of Dhanush-starrer Tamil action-thriller Thodari, which is completely shot on a moving train, has been delayed in Karnataka owing to the ongoing dispute over the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu.
In the rest of India, Thodari releases on Thursday (September 22) in cinemas.
"We fear the Cauvery row between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka will affect the release of "Thodari". Hence, we have decided to not release the film even though it will cost us heavily," the film's Karnataka distributor Manjunath told IANS.
Directed by Prabhu Solomon, the film features Dhanush as a pantry worker and Keerthy Suresh as a make-up artist.
The film has been shot on a Chennai-Delhi bound express, and it features stunts shot atop moving train.
Earlier this month, Vikram-starrer Irumugan too, faced a similar fate in Karnataka, as its release was stalled at the last moment.
Stay tuned for further updates.
