Grand release for Thalaivaa

Vijay fans throng cinema halls as the film releases after a 10-day delay

After much delay, Vijay’s Thalaivaa hit the screens all over Tamil Nadu. Fans thronged theatres in large number and some cinema halls conducted special shows in the early hours.

In a statement on Monday, Vijay thanked Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa for ensuring that the film hit the screens smoothly.

“I am thankful to the Chief Minister for intervening in this matter despite her busy work schedule. I am indebted to my fans for their patience. I request them to watch the film with their families,” the actor said.

The film, which was originally slated to hit the screens on August 9, was delayed after theatres received bomb threats. Also, a case was filed in the Madras High Court against the movie.
