Ace filmmaker Anurag Kashyap's Tamil debut, Imaikkaa Nodigal, which was slated to hit screens worldwide today, has landed in financial trouble once again. This has led to cancellation of shows everywhere in the state and abroad. Sources say producer CJ Jaya Kumar of Cameo Films India has a bevy of pending payments to be cleared, including the lead cast and crew.
The film, starring Nayanthara in the lead role, is directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu, who shot to fame through his terrific directorial debut in Demonte Colony. It's been nearly two years since the project went on floors in 2016 and witnessed multiple setbacks during the shooting as well as in the post-production phase.
Kashyap has been promoting the film in Chennai with his video interviews to popular online portals over the past two days. Theater owners across the state took to their Twitter handles in the morning to confirm the delay in the issuance of KDM for the film, which also stars Atharvaa and Raashi Khanna in pivotal roles.
Now, we have learnt from reliable sources that negotiations between various parties are currently underway to ensure a smooth release at least from tomorrow or today evening. Nayanthara has reportedly stepped in to resolve the issue, including waiving off her salary dues for the helpless producer.
Meanwhile, the press show for the film happened today morning as planned and everyone raved about the cat and mouse game between Nayanthara and Anurag Kashyap in the first half.
