Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s Vijay directed Thalaivaa has been cleared by the Revising Committee (RC) with a U certificate, subject to some cuts. Remember the film was originally censored with an UA certificate and the producer referred it to the RC.
Now that the RC has seen the film and passed it with U certificate with cuts, producer Chandraprakash Jain and distributor Vendhar Movies can heave a sigh of relief. A ‘U’ certificate makes the film eligible for entertainment tax exemption in Tamil Nadu.
Thalaivaa is now confirmed to release on August 9 worldwide. The Telugu version Anna - Born to Lead is also releasing simultaneously in Andhra.
