After wrapping up the final schedule in Ladakh, Atlee, the director of Ilayathalapathy Vijay's upcoming film Theri, has confirmed the release date of the much anticipated film.
"Theri doesn't speak about social reforms or politics. It's a police story. Vijay will be a never seen before police officer in the film." The young film-maker has said in an interview to Only Kollywood, after confirming the release date of the movie.
Theri is gearing up to hit the silver screen on April 14th, which marks the Tamil New Year. Reason behind choosing this release date seems to be more tactical than sentimental as the movie would enjoy a four day opening weekend, if released on the said date.
Meanwhile, the film will move into the post-production stage from today. Apart from Vijay, Theri also houses famed film-maker Mahendran in an important role.
"After Vijay sir, Mahendran sir's role is the backbone of the film. Like how Sathyaraj sir won a Filmfare Award for 'Raja Rani', Mahendran sir will win for 'Theri'. You cannot define his role as positive or negative", Atlee has said.
