Yesterday, we reported that Jigarthanda hero Siddharth and director Karthik Subbaraj were miffed at producer Five Star Kathiresan for not informing them about the postponement of the film release.
Now, Producer Kathiresan has come out with a statement explaining the reasons for the postponement. In his statement, he has mentioned "Dhanush’s VIP is running successfully all over Tamil Nadu, theater owners have requested for one week postponement to get more number of screens for Jigarthanda and also everyone in the trade feels that will help the film to be a bigger success at the box office".
Kathiresan says he will release Jigarthanda a week later on August 1. He says no one forced him to make this decision. He says he took the decision keeping in mind the success of the movie.
With this statement, let's hope this controversy comes to an end.
