The trailer of director Chimbudeven’s Puli has received over 101,968 likes on YouTube, surpassing actor Salman Khan’s Hindi film Kick 2. Until now, Kick 2 was in the number 1 spot with 101,855 likes. With over 6 million hits, the Puli trailer seems on course to remain the leader in YouTube popularity. Before the official trailer was released, a leaked version had been circulating on social media.
Puli, which stars Vijay, Hansika, Shruti Haasan, Sridevi and Sudeep, recently received a U certificate from the censor board. Director Chimbudeven announced that the post-production work of the film was making brisk progress.
