Release of the Silambarasan-starrer Vandha Rajavadhan Varuven, directed by Sundar, C is said to have been postponed to February 1. The film was initially scheduled to release during Pongal.
According to a report, it is said that the film’s release was postponed due to post production work, and that it would release on the Friday ahead of the actor’s birthday on February 3. Earlier, actor Silambarasan had declared that the film will release on Pongal despite tremendous pressure from Tamil Nadu Film Producers’ Council and Vishal to postpone its release.
However, there has been no official confirmation regarding the new release date from the makers.
Bankrolled by Lyca Productions, the film is an action comedy drama starring Simbu, Megha Akash and Catherine Tresa in the lead. With music composed by Hiphop Tamizha Aadhi, the film also features Prabhu, Ramya Krishnan, Nasser, VTV Ganesh, ‘Motta’ Rajendran, Robo Shankar, Yogi Babu and others.
The teaser of the film, unveiled earlier in December, featured Simbu as ‘A badass with a broken heart’; he is seen in a fancy car in the midst of a chase sequence.
The director, in a conversation, told Silverscreen that the hero of his film will embody the spirit of the youth today. “The hero is in tune with himself and with the scenario he finds himself in. He is not immature or naive. He is the complete man. It’s not just for STR fans. It is for everybody. That’s what I told Simbu when we first spoke about the movie. Vantha Rajava Thaan Varuven has something for everybody.”
Silambarasan was last seen in the Mani Ratnam directorial Chekka Chivantha Vaanam in which he played Ethi, the third son of a don, starring alongside Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Arun Vijay, Jyothika, Aditi Rao Hydari and others. He also had a cameo in Jyothika’s Kaatrin Mozhi.
