After many delays, the film had been "finally" announced for release April 11 alongside the Hindi entertainer Bhoothnath Returns starring Amitabh Bachchan. But now it seems that <i>Bhoothnath Returns</i> would have to go alone on that Friday.
"Despite our very best efforts, we're just not ready. We need two more weeks and we are not willing to speed up the post-production just because we have been missing other deadlines in the past," said a source.
The film's co-producer Murali Manohar said, "We are looking at a new date. Yes, we're looking at the one mentioned by you. The censoring of Kochadaiiyaan in all the various languages is not yet done."
