Following this, there were threats against the release of this film. Eventually, directors Seeman and Vikraman came out with a statement that they completely support the film. However, the students organizations raised the war flag, even threatening to protest outside Vijay’s residence in Chennai. The situation has now changed, with a section of the students offering their complete support for film. Looks like Kaththi is wriggling out of all its problems for a smooth release this Diwali.
A section of the students from colleges in the state have expressed their complete support to Vijay’s Kaththi. Ever since the film went into making, there were allegations that it is produced by a company, which is closely associated with the Sri Lankan President Rajapaksa.
