Tamil star hero Vijay is in deep problems. His Thalaivaa movie to be released today has been stalled. Though Thalaivaa released in rest of Tamil Nadu areas, it’s release date in Tamil Nadu has to be confirmed. The much awaited big budget movie was stalled from releasing in Tamil Nadu today, fearing security problems. The same reasons which created problems for Kamal Hasan’s Vishwaroopam have created problems for Vijay’s Thalaivaa.
Theatre owners, where Thalaivaa was to be screened, got threatening messages from unknown people. The movie was stalled fearing it would lead to clashes among public and lead to unrest in society. Also there are certain issues relating to entertainment tax exemption. While still producer, distributors and theatre owners are in negotiations, one more problem is looming large for Thalaivva. As the movie already got released overseas and neighbouring states in dubbed versions, producer is fearing that piracy DVDs may come. If piracy DVDs come, then it will have serious effect on the film. Even Thalaivaa team’s efforts to get CM Jayalalithaa’s help failed, as she did not meet them when they went to her, citing lack of a prior appointment.
