Finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel for Madha Gaja Raja (MGR), Vishal’s upcoming film, which has been lying in cold storage for close to three years after the shoot of the film was wrapped up.
Directed by Sundar C and starring Vishal, Varalaxmi, Anjali and Sadha (in a guest role), Madha Gaja Raja’s release in theatres was postponed many times in the past. Fans have almost forgotten the film which has music by Vijay Antony, who has now successfully chartered a course for himself as an actor in Kollywood. Richard Nathan is the cinematographer of the film.
Financial issues bogged down the film’s release and after committing to star in the film, Vishal went on and completed several projects including Aambala, Poojai, Paayum Puli and Kathakali. Now that Vishal won last year’s Nadigar Sangam polls and is now the incumbent general secretary, he held talks with the concerned to as to ensure that all hurdles in the film’s release were removed.
Vishal has now tweeted on his Twitter account stating that the film would finally be releasing in theatres on 29th April. Sarathkumar’s daughter Varalaxmi, who plays one of the two heroines along with Anjali, reportedly fell in love with Vishal during the making of the film!
