Looks like the team of Maanaadu is going through difficult times. The movie, which was slated to hit the screens on November 25, has been postponed again due to reasons best known to the makers. Producer Suresh Kamatchi took to Twitter to share the unexpected news. 

The translated version of his tweet reads, "I have been waiting eagerly for the release of this film which was made with full of dreams. I would like to announce that the release of the movie stands postponed due to unavoidable circumstances. We will inform the new release later. Inconvenience regretted."

This is the second time the makers are announcing a change in its release date. In the second week of September, the makers had announced that Maanaadu will make it to the screens on Deepavali, on November 4. However, a few days before the date, they expressed their difficulty to release the project.

A few days ago, Suresh had lashed at the state government's new rule that only those who have taken at least one dose of vaccine will be allowed in movie halls from this week. He questioned why the government did not implement the rule when audience were allowed in large numbers during the festival of Deepavali.  

At the pre-release event of the film which was held a week ago, Silambarasan turned emotional during his speech when he spoke about a few people who are trying to sabotage his career and films. He also sought help from his fans to ensure that he lives in peace. 

It is yet to be known what the actual reason behind the postponement is. While a few say that the team is yet to settle financial dues, some others say that the earlier issues pertaining to the actor's 2017 film Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan (streaming on Amazon Prime Video) is yet to be sorted out.
