The Sun Pictures, who is distributing the movie, is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that the movie generates curiosity among the movie goers. Yesterday, it aired the audio launch function on its channel Sun TV at a prime time to ensure that the program gets good viewership and the movie gets good publicity.
Mappillai will release worldwide on April 08 without any clashes. The movie was expected to clash with Silambarasan's Vaanam but now we hear is that Simbu's movie has been postponed and it is not hitting the screens on the earlier announced date.
Dhanush, Hansika Motwani and Manisha Koirala are starring in Mappillai. The movie is a remake of Rajinikanth's yesteryear film with the same name. It is directed by Suraj and produced by Nemichand Jhabak and Hitesh Jhabak.
