Though there has been no official announcement about the same, it looks like the film's audio launch will be held at Chennai's Nehru Stadium on September 30. Earlier political commentator Savukku Shankar has courted controversy when he accused Tamil Nadu sports minister Udhayanidhi Stalin of arm-twisting Leo producers to give the distribution rights to his production house Red Giant Movies, but Seven Screen Studio, which is bankrolling the film, immediately clarified that it was not the case and that the news was untrue.
