It is not just fans but a few celebrities are also not happy with the delay in the release of Vijay's much-hyped film, "Thalaivaa."
"Thalaivaa" was released in theatres across the globe on Friday but was stalled in Tamil Nadu after a few theatres received bomb threats from the Tamil Nadu Oppressed Students Revolutionary Force. The lesser known outfit is supporting a man called Karnan who has raised objections agianst Vijay's film claiming that it is based on the life of his father and grandfather.
The delay in the film's release has not just disappointed fans but also celebrities including Dhanush and Simbu.
Dhanush, who is on a roll following the success of "Raanjhanaa" and "Mariyaan", has come out in support of Vijay's film. The actor tweeted on his micro-blogging site saying, "What happened to thalaiva is unfair.i wish dey show dis kinda effort in makin dis country a better place 2 live than just 2 ban a film. As long as a film is not based on a true story and has fictitious characters...honestly i don understand."
"I hope d matter will b resolved wid d concerned parties at d earliest. im sure our CM will do d needful," he said.
This is not the first time that Dhanush has showered his support for a Tamil fim facing release issues. The versatile actor also raised his voice in support of Kamal Haasan's "Vishwaroopam", which faced trouble from some Muslim groups causing a two-week delay in the film's release.
Dhanush and Vijay share a good relation, and it was evident when latter lauded the former's work and described him as a wonderful actor at an award ceremony held recently.
Young actor Simbu has also expressed his concern over the delay in the release of "Thalaivaa". "Very sad to hear abt thalaiva :( hope they solve the issue soon... To all vijay Anna fans - don't b upset, it's not gonna b raining all the time, sunshine is on the way... b patient and calm... god bless!!!" he tweeted.
It is still not certain as to when "Thalaivaa" would make it to the theatres in Tamil Nadu. However, the film has opened in neighbouring states and foreign countries as scheduled on Friday, 9 August.
