Actor Arun Vijay, who is on a promotional tour of his upcoming film ‘Yaanai’ in Malaysia, has offered prayers at the famous Murugan Temple in the Batu Caves there. Sources close to the actor said that the actor took time to seek the blessings of the deity even as he was on a whirlwind tour, promoting his film that has raised expectations.
The film, which has been directed by Hari, features Arun Vijay and Priya Bhavani Shankar in the lead. It was originally scheduled to release on May 6 this year but got postponed to June 17 first and then to July 1. The film has been cleared for release by the Censor Board with an U/A certificate.
Arun Vijay had said that the unit had chosen to postpone the film’s release to July 1 to facilitate director Lokesh Kanakaraj’s action blockbuster ‘Vikram’s strong run in theatres.
The satellite and digital rights of the film have already been bought by the Zee group.
Produced by Drumstick Productions, the film is primarily targetted at ‘B’ and ‘C’ centre audiences.
The film has raised expectations as this is the first rural script that Arun Vijay is doing after a gap of almost 12 years.
