For those unversed, the Madras High Court had reportedly stayed the release of the film after a plea was filed by Radiance Media. As per reports, the production company claimed that the Escape Artists Motion Pictures (one of the producers of the film) were going to release Nenjam Marappathillai without paying the money they had given in 2019. The petitioner had also requested the court to stay the film's release until the makers pay back the money along with overall interest.
Well now, with the latest confirmation from the actor's side, fans and followers of Suryah are eagerly waiting to witness the film after almost 4 years. Though the film's shooting was wrapped in June 2016, Nenjam Marappathillai was shelved owing to financial issues.
Directed by Selvaraghavan, the film also features Regina Cassandra and Nandita Swetha in key roles. Jointly bankrolled by Escape Artists Motion Pictures, Southside Studios and GLO Studios, the horror film has music composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and camera cranked by Arvind Krishna.
