We all know that Maanaadu was delayed and the morning shows were canceled but what actually happened?
Sources say that Sony LIV snapped the digital rights of the film for a whopping 12 crores but satellite rights created huge confusion. Initially, Vijay TV was the front runner to snap the satellite rights but they backed out, and later, Kalaignar TV offered 6 crores.
However, Kalaignar TV's plan to premiere the film on Pongal clashed with the conditions of the already signed agreement with Sony LIV.
Maanaadu's producer Suresh Kamatchi also couldn't arrange 6 crores. Finally, Silambarasan TR's dad T Rajendar and mom Usha came forward and promised the financiers that they will take care of the 6 crores. Only after their word, Maanaadu hit the screens.
Meanwhile, Maanaadu has opened with super positive reviews.
