‘Kaththi’ release in Tamil Nadu uncertain


The release of Vijay-starrer Tamil actioner ‘Kaththi’ Wednesday in Tamil Nadu looks uncertain due to an ‘unproven link’ between the film’s producer Lyca Productions’ and Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Tamil fringe groups have demanded the removal of Lyca Productions’ name from the banner for smooth release of A.R. Murugadoss-directed ‘Kaththi’ in the state.

“The only request we have is the removal of Lyca’s name from the banner. We have no issues if the film is released without their name. If they fail to oblige, members from over 100 Tamil groups will ensure that the film doesn’t run in any theatre in Tamil Nadu,” T. Velmurugan, who has been spearheading the protest, told IANS.
