It looks like Vijay’s Puli will not be releasing on August 15 as the makers have decided to release the film for Vinayagar Chaturthi day, September 17.
Sources say that the team wants more time for the VFX and CG portions hence they are pushing the film from August 15 to September 17.
Remember according to the new rule of Tamil Film Producers Council, films that are shot above 15 crores budget should release only during festival days so the maker’s of Puli is targeting the next festival after Independence day and that would be Vinayagar Chaturthi.
Puli team has already completed the talkie portions and the currently shooting two songs in Cambodia and Thailand.
Mean while, Vishal has announced long back that his film Paayum Puli will be releasing on September 17 so it will be Ilayathalapathy Vs Puratchithalapathy for this Vinayagar Chaturthi in other words Puli Vs Paayum Puli!
In past films like Vijay’s Azhagiya Tamizh Magan and Kaththi have clashed with Vishal’s Thamirabarani and Poojai respectively.
