The censors have given ‘U’ rating to national award-winning actor Dhanush’s upcoming film Maari, which is to release in theatres on 17th July (next Friday).
Directed by Balaji Mohan of Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi and Vaayai Moodi Pesavum fame, Maari brings together Dhanush and the picture-perfect Kajal Aggarwal as on-screen pair for the first time. The film was earlier announced to be releasing on 17th July but the crew later said that the date of release had been postponed.
In the meantime, the film was screened to the Regional Censor Board in Chennai. The Board officials watched the film and awarded an ‘U’ certificate to the film whose teaser, which released some time back, was criticized by anti-smoking lobbyists for promoting the habit of smoking.
Now that Simbu’s Vaalu has missed its date with theatres for the umpteenth time on 17th July, it now appears that Maari would release in theatres on that day as per the original schedule.
