Fans of Tamil superstar Vijay can now heave a sigh of relief. After initial hurdles, the actor’s new fantasy drama Puli will hit the screens on Thursday. The early morning shows of the film were cancelled on Thursday after theatres failed to receive clearance from Qube, the company that streams movies digitally.

It was only after actor Vijay intervened and settled all the dues that the clearance was given to theatres by Qube.

“Due to the Income Tax raid on Thursday, Vijay and the producers of the Puli weren’t allowed to transfer funds. This morning Vijay went to Gemini labs and settled all the dues and subsequently the theatres were given the nod to screen the film from noon,” said a source from the industry.

The film’s overseas distributor Atmus Entertainment also confirmed via their Twitter page that Puli will release shortly.

Directed by Chimbu Deven, the film also stars Sridevi, Shruti Haasan and Hansika Motwani in important roles.
