Fans of actor Vijay Sethupathi were in for a huge surprise as his Puriyatha Puthir finally hit the screens.
Starring Vijay Sethupathi and Gayathrie in the lead (bringing them together after Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom and Rummy) and directed by Ranjit Jayakodi, Puriyatha Puthir was in the making for a long time and had faced many delays in its release in the past.
FEFSI had filed a suit with a Sessions Court in Saidapet in Chennai stating that the film’s release on Friday should not be permitted as the producers hadn’t yet paid the due wages and salaries to employees and workers affiliated with it. Taking up the case, the Court stayed the film’s release, thus hugely upsetting Vijay Sethupathi’s fans.
When the case came up for hearing yesterday, the producer gave an assurance to the Court after which the Court allowed the film’s screening. Thanks to mediation from many quarters, the film finally released in theatres as per schedule in the afternoon.
