Due to an unexpected delay, the professional 24 Am Studios producers of Sivakarthikeyan's Velaikkaran has decided to push the film from Sep 29 date which they had announced earlier.
The reason behind this delay is that the shoot of two songs and the extensive post-production work has caused this unexpected push in release date. Now the production house has decided to release the film during X'mas on December 22.
Velaikkaran being a big-budget film, distributors and producers in the industry have requested RD Raja to lock a theatrical release only during the festival weekend. Since the Diwali slot is already occupied by Mersal, Theeran Adhigaram Ondru, and Nenjil Thunivirundhal, team Velaikkaran has decided to come for Christmas weekend.
As the release date has been pushed, fans of Sivakarthikeyan can expect the audio and trailer launch only in November. Mohan Raja is directing Velaikkaran, which boasts of an ensemble star cast of Nayanthara, Fahadh Faasil, Sneha, Prakash Raj, Vijay Vasanth, RJ Balaji and Sathish.
