Vijay's upcoming film, "Kaththi", has received a clean "U" rating from the censor board.

With the censor formalities complete, "Kaththi" team is expected to commence the promotional activities of the film. The makers have already released "Kaththi 3D" game for the Android and Windows version. They are available for download in Google Play Store and Windows Game Store. The makers are planning to release the game for the iOS version as well as the 2D version for children.

"Kaththi" is all set for a massive release on 22 October as a Diwali treat for the fans. Besides releasing in good number of screens in Tamil Nadu, the film is expected to have a record release (in more than 200 screens) in Kerala. The Vijay starrer is also set for a big release in the US (105 screens) and the UK (70 screens).

There are huge expectations for "Kaththi" as Vijay has teamed up with director AR Murugadoss for the second time after the humongous success of "Thuppakki." The film's posters, teaser and the songs have generated a huge buzz surrounding the project. Fans are eagerly waiting to see the trailer, which was expected to be released this weekend. However, there has no official announcement regarding the same.

"Kaththi" is tipped to be an action thriller with Vijay appearing in dual roles. For the first time, Samantha plays the female lead opposite Ilayathalapathy in the film. Neil Nithin Mukesh, Tota Roy and comedian Sathish are also part of the film's cast. Lyca Productions and Ayngaran International have jointly produced the film.

Anirudh has composed the songs, which have already become big hits. The "Selfie Pulla" song and "Aathi" song are said to be the pick of the lot. The composer is busy working on the background scores of the film. "Hello from the studio.. #kaththibgm #roundtheclock #sharpeningtheknife," tweeted Anirudh.

"Kaththi" is expected to enjoy a long weekend owing to Diwali holiday. It is likely to take grand openings despite the release of Vishal's "Poojai" on the same day. "Poojai" has been censored with "U/A" certificate and confirmed for Diwali release.
