Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s much awaited release – Thalaivaa, helmed by director A L Vijay has been in the news recently, as the director disclosed to the press that “Although Thalaivaa has nothing based on politics, it is scripted around this young talent who is a passionate dancer that evolves into a leader with his honest efforts.”
There is no doubt, the moment those lines reached fans of the actor worldwide, they broke into a dance of their own, expecting a scorcher of an entertainment in the coming days. However, they had to meet disappointment moments later, as announcements were made that Thalaivaa has been pushed to a release to 9th of August, aiming for the Eid weekend collections.
Even though in Tamil Nadu, everything is locked and in perfect control, it is the North and Kerala which has attracting its share of tensions from the Vijay camp. The fact that, Bollywood’s King Khan – Shahrukh Khan, plans to release his widely promoted mock drama on South Indians – Chennai Express around the same time, a major chunk of the international audience will gravitate to the B town flick mentions an industry tracker.
SRK too release his big budget entertainer like Thalaivaa all over the world, to say the fact SRK releases are the biggest scale. We still believe, only time will tell, the fate Thalaivaa faces. Apart from Vijay’s Thalaivaa features the likes of Sathyaraj, Amala Paul, Santhanam and cinematography by Nirav Shah.
