Elamaran aka 'Blue Shirt' Maran, known for his harsh movie reviews on his popular YouTube channel, surprised Tamil film buffs when he had announced his directorial debut earlier this year. The movie, which was titled Anti Indian, had courted several controversies when the Censor Board refuses to certify it, thanks to its title and the portrayal of a few scenes which allegedly throw light on the current political system in Tamil Nadu.
Maran had organized a press meet some time ago after the Madras High Court cleared the movie, with no cuts and U/A certificate. He had released the much-awaited trailer of the film recently on his YouTube channel, which opened to mixed reviews among film enthusiasts. Apart from writing the screenplay, he has also composed music for Anti Indian. Aadukalam Naren and Radha Ravi among others will be seen essaying prominent characters in it.
Maran has now took to Twitter to inform that the film will hit the screens on December. He also posted a new poster of the movie. Earlier, he had thanked the High Court for clearing the project and termed it as historic verdict. His tweet read, "From 38 cuts to Zero cuts. Time to thank the Honourable Court for the historic verdict. A shot in the arm for small budget film producers of Tamil Cinema who are intended to make bold movies."
Produced by Adam Bava, Anti Indian is said to be the film which has faced so many cuts from the committee in its initial stage after Bollywood films, Udta Punjab and Padmaavat. Maran had earlier clarified on what made him name the movie as Anti Indian. According to him, every political leader who intends to divide people on the basis of religion are anti Indian. He had also added that the audience will be able to understand more once they watch the film.
