Actor Dhanush’s upcoming Tamil action thriller ‘Thodari’ will not release in Karnataka for some time now. The delay in the movie’s release in the state is due to the ongping Cauvery water dispute between states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. The film has been entirely shot on a moving train.
The movie is slated to release on Thursday in other parts of India.
The fim’s distributor said that this is not good news for them as they fear it will largely affect the movie.
"We fear the Cauvery row between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka will affect the release of "Thodari". Hence, we have decided to not release the film even though it will cost us heavily," the film's Karnataka distributor Manjunath told IANS.
Directed by Prabhu Solomon, the film features Dhanush as a pantry worker and Keerthy Suresh as a make-up artist.
The film has been shot on a Chennai-Delhi bound express, and it features stunts shot atop moving train.
Earlier this month, Vikram-starrer "Irumugan" too faced a similar fate in Karnataka, as its release was stalled.
