The Kollywood trade is abuzz that Sun Pictures big budget magnum opus, Rajinikanth’s Enthiran, directed by Shankar is likely to be postponed from September 24 to October 1. However, there is no official confirmation so far on the matter.
After a very successful trailer launch last Saturday, the buzz was that the film will take a gargantuan opening worldwide. The final copy is being made ready and it should not be rushed just for the sake of a September 24 release.
Perfection is the key word. One more week delay does not matter at all for a film which has been in the making for two years.
Remember Sun Pictures are making it a worldwide event, a Tamil film has not been showcased on the international scene so big. It has to get the best of the screens and a wide release. Enthiran’s Hindi version Robot is being released like a Bollywood biggie.
However Ranbir Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra’s Anjaana Anjaani has locked in on September 24 well in advance. Remember Robot was earlier to release on September 3, then September 17, but got delayed due to post production work.
It makes better sense to go for a October 1 release, as then Robot would be the biggest movie of the week worldwide.
