Shweta Menon’s erotic film postponed

Post-production work has delayed the release of Rathinirvedam

Fans eagerly awaiting the release of Rathinirvedam, will have to wait a bit longer for the erotic movie to hit the screens. Certain hurdles in post-production have delayed the film’s release by 10 days. The film will now release only on June 10. Rathinirvedam is the remake of the 1978 classic of the same name. It’s a story of sexual awakening; of a young man Pappu who falls for an older woman named Rathi. The original, which had Jayabharati and Krishnachandran in the lead, featured explicitly erotic scenes. Come 2011, and Shweta Menon will reprise the role of Rathi with Sreejith playing the fawning, ever-inquisitive Pappu. Directed by TK Rajeev Kumar, Rathinirvedam is expected to do well at the box-office, considering its EQ (Erotic Quotient that is). The promotional stills are already a hot property online.
