With Lyca having a strong connection with the Sri Lankan President Rajapaksa, the protests are strengthening. Following this, AR Murugadoss had plans to release Kaththi under his home banner. However, Lyca Productions have made it clear that they will remain the film’s producers, which has put AR Murugadoss and Vijay in deep trouble.
Director AR Murugadoss, despite trying his best to pacify the pro-Tamil groups to ensure a smooth release for Kaththi, is disturbed over several other organizations joining hands to stall the release of the movie. About 65 organizations have joined hands for this issue and have come out with a statement that they will continue with their protest unless the producers are changed.
