The teaser of Vijay’s upcoming film Bhairava was released officially a few hours before the scheduled time of midnight as the makers realized that it had already been ‘leaked’ on the Net.
Directed by Bharathan and pitting 4-film old newbie Keerthy Suresh opposite Vijay, Bhairava is to release in theatres next January during Pongal. It was earlier announced by the film’s makers that the film’s teaser would be released at the stroke of midnight on 28th Deepavali so as to coincide with the ‘birth’ of Deepavali.
However, the teaser was eventually released two-and-a-half hours before schedule at 09:30 p.m. It was a decision ‘forced’ on the makers as they realized that the teaser had already been leaked on the Net by the same miscreants who did so with the film’s first-look posters a few weeks back.
The crew is said to be in a state of shock as there has been literally nothing confidential about the film so far; they fear that this shouldn’t be the case when the film hits the screens in January!
