The buzz is that the audio launch of Vikram-Shankar's upcoming film "Ai" will happen on 15 September.
The event is expected to be a grand affair with the presence of Kollywood and Hollywood celebrities.
Some reports suggest that the makers have invited former American President Bill Clinton, Hollywood actors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan for the audio release, stated Indiaglitz. However, there is no official confirmation regarding the audio release date as well as about the guests attending the event.
Fans have been eagerly waiting to see the film's first look teaser. The teaser is expected to be released during the audio launch.
"Ai" is one of the most-awaited films of 2014. Expectations are high for the film as Vikram has teamed up with director Shankar for the second time post the stupendous success of their 2006-release "Anniyan."
"Ai" is touted to be a romantic thriller with Vikram and Amy Jackson in the lead roles.
Shankar has kept the film's story under wraps. Apparently, major portions of the Vikram starrer are set in China. Vikram has reportedly undergone several physical changes and will be seen in more than one look in the film. The shooting of "Ai" is almost complete with only a song left to be shot.
The big budget entertainer is produced by Aascar Ravichandran under his Aascar Films banner. The film's music is composed by Oscar winner A. R. Rahman. Young music composer Anirudh has rendered a song for "Ai" album and Sony music has reportedly snapped the audio rights of the film.
The story for this romantic thriller has been written by Shankar Subha. Sreeram P. C. has cranked the camera while Anthony has handled the editing work.
The film has been in the making for almost two years. The Shankar directorial was expected to be a summer release, but it did not materialise. The latest buzz is that the Vikram starrer is eyeing a Diwali release in October.
If the film releases for the festival period, it will be a special treat for the fans. However, "Ai" is unlikely to have a solo release as two other Tami biggies are gearing up to hit theatres during the same time. Vijay's "Kaththi" and Vishal's "Poojai" have already been confirmed for the festival release.
Considering the big budget of "Ai", the film's makers might be looking for a solo release. It is doubtful whether the makers would take a risk to release the film along with two other biggies. An official confirmation regarding "Ai" release date is still awaited.
