At the press meet of Thimiru Pudichavan, Vijay Antony has confirmed that his last two films didn't do well at the box office. 

"My last two films were failures at the box office. Thimiru Pudichavan is an important film in my career. Many are asking me why I chose to release the film for Diwali. Thimiru Pudichavan story itself revolves around Diwali so we thought releasing the film for the festival will be very apt. Moreover, we finished the film and I see no point in delaying the release ", said Vijay Antony.

Amma Creations T Siva said that he has watched the film which has 25 clap worthy moments. Nivetha Pethuraj who plays a cop in the film said her performance in Thimiru Pudichavan is her career best.

The film’s director Ganeshaa said: "Thimiru Pudichavan is all about how juvenile criminals becomes the threat to the society. Vijay Antony sir gave me the chance despite knowing that my debut film was a failure. He also advised to cast lesser known actors so that they will get an identity in the industry".

The film is scheduled to hit the screens on November 6.
