Ajith Kumar's "Yennai Arindhaal" has been in the news for a while now as its released date has been postponed a couple of times.
Now, Udhayam Cinemas in Chennai received an anonymous letter on Tuesday, which threatened that the theatre would witness a bomb blast if it shows the movie.
"We received an anonymous letter last night. It was a bomb threat warning us to not release 'Yennai Arindhaal'. It has been reported to the police and they're investigating," source from Udhayam Cinemas told IANS.
The film was originally planned for a Pongal 2015 release, but was later postponed to 29 February. It was again postponed after it faced delay in getting the "U" certificate from the censor board.
The Gautham Menon directorial, which is set to hit theatres on 5 February, also has Trisha Krishnan and Anushka Shetty in the female lead roles.
Produced by AM Rathnam, the upcoming romantic thriller has music by Harris Jayaraj, cinematography by Dan Macarthur and editing by Anthony.
