Thalaivaa team to fast for film release


The entire cast and crew of Thalaivaa, including Ilayathalapathy Vijay, Sathyaraj, Amala Paul, director Vijay, music composer GV Prakash, cinematographer Nirav Shah, lyricist Na Muthukumar and producer Chandraprakash Jain, have sought permission from the commissioner of police to fast in an organized manner, to speed up the release of the film.
Confirming the news, director Vijay says, “We are seeking permission from the Chennai commissioner for the same.”
In a letter addressed to the commissioner of police, the producer and the director have written, “Despite various steps undertaken to release the film in Tamil Nadu, the film hasn’t hit screens. So, the cast and crew of the film seek permission to conduct a token fast at a venue designated by the government, for early release of the film.”
Thalaivaa was supposed to have hit screens on August 9. “But, theatre owners refused to screen the film because of the threats they received over telephone and anonymous letters. The distributors and exhibitors have incurred heavy loss, especially since the film has released in all other states, except Tamil Nadu,” the letter stated.
