Mani Ratnam has trimmed his Kaatru Veliyidai by seven minutes as he personally felt that the film is little longer and they were few unwanted scenes. Earlier, the run time was 147 minutes and the current duration of the film is 140 minutes.
The newly edited version will be dispatched to overseas countries by tomorrow. In USA, ATMUS is planning to release the film in 100 screens and they believe that Kaatru Veliyidai will repeat Mani Ratnam’s O Kadhal Kanmani magic.
“Our 2017 starts with the Maniratnam Magnum Opus ‘Kaatru Veliyidai’! Romance is in the air! 108 theaters confirmed so far for Tamil. List shortly”, posted ATMUS Entertainment, the US distributors of the film on Twitter.
Kaatru Veliyidai starring Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari is all set to release on April 7.
