The complaint also specified that the release of the movie should be suspended until the complaint is taken into knowledge and a resolution is finalised.

When Akshay’s character walks in, it specifies that the world is not only for humans but also for birds and animals.The S Shankar directorial is slated to release on November 29 and was open to advance bookings since Monday. The film will have a grand release all around the globe and will open in over 10,000 screens across nations.
