Chennai, December 7 - It looks like the South Indian film industry is dealing with so-called unforeseen circumstances, which is making the filmmakers delay their movies.
Recently, a couple of Telugu and Tamil films, including Keerthy Suresh's "Good Luck Sakhi" got postponed due to unknown reasons, and now, Prabhu Deva-starrer Tamil movie "Thael" is getting the same treatment.
Directed by Harikumar, "Thael", which features Prabhu Deva and Samyuktha Hegde in the leading roles, has been postponed and the new date will be announced soon. Studio Green Productions, the production house that has produced the action thriller, said in a statement that the release of Thael had been postponed because of "unforeseen situations".
"Thael", which means 'scorpion' in Tamil, was originally scheduled to hit screens on December 10. The film has music by C. Sathya and cinematography by Vignesh Vasu. It has been edited by National Award winner K.L. Praveen.
Interestingly, Prabhu Deva, who is known for his dancing skills, does not have a single dance number in this film. The movie also stars Eshwari Rao, Yogi Babu, and others in key roles. Meanwhile, the delay of Deva's film has saddened his fans who wished to see him again on big screens, and they are also worried that continuous delay can make the film skip its theatrical release.
