Vaibhav-starrer Aalambana, which was slated to be released in theatres on December 15, has been pushed
Actor Vaibhav's Tamil film Aalambana, which was slated to be released in theatres today, December 15, has been postponed. In a statement issued by KJR Studios, which has produced the fantasy comedy, the makers revealed that the film's release date was pushed due to "unforeseen circumstances". They also apologised for the inconvenience caused to the audience. However, there has been no word on the new release date.
Are financial obligations the reason behind the delay?
The statement from KJR Studios reads, “KJR Studios regrets to announce the postponement of the theatrical release of our film, Aalambana. Despite our dedicated efforts to ensure the film's timely release, unforeseen circumstances beyond our control have compelled us to announce the unfortunate postponement of the film. As Aalambana caters to children and families, we aim to provide an optimal viewing experience. Therefore, we will reschedule the film's release to a more suitable occasion to offer a more enjoyable experience for our audience.”
The production house ended the note with, “We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused to our audience, partners, press, and media. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your understanding and continuous support”.
As per reports, the film has been caught up in legal issues due to financial constraints, which led to the film's release being pushed. Along with Aalambana, Sivakarthikeyan's Ayalaan has also been dragged into this issue. Ayalaan is scheduled for a Pongal release in 2024.
Aalambana is about a wealthy and prosperous royal family that experiences a dramatic downfall after the arrival of their son (Vaibhav). The plot revolves around two goons who are after a magical lamp. The protagonist (Vaibhav) gets it instead, following which a genie (Munishkanth) becomes his slave, changing his life forever. However, things become serious when the two goons start chasing the protagonist. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
