Kaavalan which has Vijay and Asin in the lead roles is to be released for Pongal. But only 70 theatres are available for the screening of this film and that also, these theatres are ordinary ones.
Kaavalan is a film which has Vijay and Asin in the lead roles and is directed by Siddique. Right from beginning this film has been facing lots of obstacles and problems. Now this film was supposed to be released on 17th of this month.
But since there was dearth in the theatres, this release was postponed to Pongal. But now also this film is not getting theatres. The reason for this is the theatre owners. The Theatre Owners are claiming compensation from Vijay since some of his recent films did not do well at the box office. But Vijay said that he is not responsible and so there is no question of compensation. Now the theatre owners are refusing to screen Vijay’s films.
In between Shakthi Chidambaram intervened in this matter and acquired the rights and has planned to release in 400 theatres in Tamil Nadu. But so far he was able to get only 70 theatres and that also these theatres are ordinary. Because of this Kaavalan is still in trouble at a time when Siruthai and Ilaignyan have got most of the theatres.
