This really is turning out to be some gamble. Just yesterday it was announced that Thala Ajith starrer Mankatha had been sold to Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green and now just within a few hours Mankatha has slipped into the hands of Kollywood big house Sun Pictures. Dhayanidhi Azhagiri of Cloud Nine Movies confirmed as he exclaimed, “MANKATHA is not releasing under Studio Green’s banner!!!” Moreover Studio Green owner Gnanavel Raja has also confirmed that he is no longer associated with Mankatha.
On inquiring why the posters were released under the Studio Green banner, Dhayanidhi Azhagiri told us, “Ads have come under Studio Green’s banner today. We couldn’t remove it before due to the strict cut off time maintained by the newspapers.” It is also heard that mogul production banner Sun Pictures are planning for a 360 Degree marketing and promotional strategy to make this venture a mega success. Now that the confusion has been cleared there is a lot to cheer for the fans. The movie has already been given a ‘U/A’ certificate and won’t be enjoying any ‘exemption’ from entertainment tax. We are told that the first copy will be ready in 3 days! And the movie will be hitting theaters as planned on 31st .Meanwhile the Mankatha team has completed the full re-recording process and plans to kick start DTS mixing from tomorrow onwards. “The tracks are sounding super”, reports on insider.
So Mankatha is coming out with a big bang! Or do we still have any more surprises left?
