Overseas distributors say that Thalapathy Vijay's most anticipated film Bigil will hit the screens before Diwali day. In Tamil Nadu, the Government has only declared October 27(Sunday) as the Diwali day. As Sunday release will not benefit the overseas distributors, they had requested the producers of Bigil to release the film on Friday or Thursday (October 24 or 25).
Sources say that the producers of Bigil have obliged to the request of the overseas distributors and they are now holding talks to finalize the release date.
Directed by Atlee, Vijay has already completed the shooting of this magnum opus sports action entertainer. Rahman is scoring the music for the film which also has Nayanthara, Yogi Babu, Vivek, Indhuja, Kathir, Amrita, Reba Monica, Varsha, Daniel Balaji, and Jackie Shroff playing pivotal characters.
