For Illayathalaparthy Vijay’s fans, expectations came crashing down as Thalaivaa which was expected in 450 + screens in Tamil Nadu could not see a successful release. The root cause of this issue has been stemming from complaints by theater owners, who were threatened with serious consequences to the theater and the residence of S Madhan who has funded Thalaivaa under his banner Vendhar movies.
Evidently, the fact that a 20 year old fan committed suicide hanging himself from the ceiling, is a clear sign of the desperation fans are facing. Although mired in controversies, Vijay himself has been calm through the whole event, as he assured his fans to be patient about the proceedings.
In a recent press release, he mentioned to his fans. “I know there are many issues at hand to be dealt with, but I am sure our Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa who has dealt with such issues with much efficiency will find a solution to the matter. As all of us are aware of her administrative efforts to make Tamil Nadu the best state in the country , it is my hope and humble request that she intervenes and helps us in our efforts to release Thalaivaa. Times have been tough, but my only request to my dear fans is to be patient till a decision has been arrived upon.”
Hopefully, the CM will take strong action following the plea as presently, there is no other way to sort out this issue.
