Director Selvan has threatened to go on hunger strike if his film Krishna Leelai is not released!

He says the producers Kavithalaya have been taking him for a ride by not releasing the film which has been completed two years back!

Selvan is a former associate of director Shankar, and has directed Soori with Vignesh which bombed.

Now all his hopes lie on Krishna Leelai an action masala film produced by Kavithalaya's Pushpa Kandasamy and was to be marketed by Ayngaran International.

The film has Jeevan,  Megna, Sudararajan and Kotta Srinivasa Rao with music by Sreekanth Deva.

Trade sources say the film is not getting released as there are no buyers for it, with Jeevan's market at an all time low.

In an open letter to Chennai Police Commissioner, Selvan said that he would go on an indefinite hunger strike from July 1, if the producers do not take any steps to release Krishna Leelai.
