Vaalu Clears Legal Hurdles, August 14 Release Likely

The Simbu-Hansika starrer Vaalu, which has been dealing with release delays for a long time, is finally cleared to release. A source close to Silambarasan confirmed that the cases filed against Vaalu’s release by Magic Rays have been retracted and the makers are looking at August 14 as a tentative release date.


Magic Rays, a distribution firm, had filed a case against the film’s release, citing conflicts with Chimbu Cine Arts, which would be releasing the film in Tamil Nadu. Following this, the Madras High Court had stopped the release scheduled for July 17. Support for the film had poured in from all quarters of the industry, including from fellow actors.

The release date will most likely be confirmed on Wednesday, after legal formalities are completed on Tuesday. Vaalu, directed by debutante director Vijay Chander, stars Simbu, Hansika and Santhanam. Produced by SS Chakravarthy’s Nic Arts, Vaalu has music composed by Thaman.
