“Yes. The release date is August 20. It is confirmed,” A L Vijay, Director of the film Thalaiva told PTI.
To a question, Vijay said the tagline ‘Time to Lead’ has been removed from all publicity materials and promotional content following a ‘request’ from Vendhar Movies, distributors for the film.

On the number of theatres the film is likely to be screened, ‘Amma Creations Siva’, an associate of Vendhar Movies, said the film will be screened in 500 halls in Tamil Nadu.
The film, with Vijay as hero and Amala Paul as lead actress, was expected to be released on August 9 but had been stalled in the backdrop of bomb threats from a little known outfit opposed to ‘Vendhar Movies’.
