Vikram and Amy Jackson starrer Tamil movie "I", which was formerly called by the name "Ai", was supposed to release for Diwali. But the release was pushed because the film was not ready.
Later, producer Aascar Ravichandran claimed that the film would appear before audience in November and the makers reportedly locked in the date 14 November as the D-day. Now, it is getting delayed further.
The latest buzz is that Vikram's "I" will not be released on 14 November as the post-productions works of the multiple versions are taking more time than expected. Along with it, they have planned a mega-event for the audio launch function of the Telugu version of the film.
Aascar Ravichandran has roped in Hollywood actor Jackie Chan for the music release. It takes a lot of preparations for the event and the team will not get sufficient time to promote the film. So, they have reportedly pushed the release. The forthcoming Tamil film might now hit the screens on 28 November.
Sources say that "I" will not be delayed further as Rajinikanth's "Lingaa" is scheduled for 12 December release. The latest date 14 November ensures that both the films have a good gap to avoid clash at the Kollywood box office.
Meanwhile, the "I" team is fully busy with the post-production works. The team is also getting ready for the audio launch function of its Telugu version, which will happen soon. On the other end, the producer has also planned international premieres for the film. For the US premiere, he has invited Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone, who has agreed to watch the Tamil film.
"I" directed by Shankar is a romantic-thriller flick. Oscar Award winner AR Rahman has composed the music and PC Sreeram has handled the camera with Anthony looking after the editing department.
