It looks like the team of Ajith's Thunivu is leaving no stone unturned to promote the film. The latest we hear is that the promotions of the film are happening at Nasdaq, one of the first Indian films to do so. The US distributors have shared the same on their social media handle and the news has brought in a lot of surprise. We hear that additional shows have been added due to the high demand for the film abroad.

Thunivu, helmed by H Vinoth, has Ajith playing a stylish bank robber. The star cast includes Samuthirakani, Manju Warrier, John Kokken, Veera and Vishwanath to name a few. Going by the trailer, it looks like Ajith is all set to loot a bank. Samuthirakani plays a police officer who is on a mission to take them down. Manju Warrier is also seen firing away in the trailer and the actress had revealed in a recent interview that it was Ajith who taught her to hold the gun in position and fire. It is to be noted that Ajith is an expert in shooting and has participated in a number of shooting competitions and emerged as winner.

The film is bankrolled by Boney Kapoor and it marks the third collaboration between Ajith, Boney Kapoor and H Vinoth after Nerkonda Paarvai and Valimai. Since Vijay's Varisu is also releasing on the same day, the makers have decided to have 1am screening for Thunivu and 4am screening for Varisu. The idea is to avoid any physical and verbal fights between fans.

In the meantime, there is a buzz that Thunivu will be banned in Saudi Arabia. It is said that some portions in the film disrespects a religion and a community. So, the bookings for the film have stopped for now. In the meantime, the bookings for US, UK, France, Australia and Sri Lanka are happening at a brisk pace.
