‘Puli’ shows cancelled: Actor Vijay fans are sad
Vijay’s ‘Puli’ Early Morning shows getting cancelled
Fantasy Film’s Morning Shows Cancelled
‘Puli’ movie first show cancelled today

Puli met with a few complications yesterday following a tax raid on the residences of a few crucial members of the team. Late during the night yesterday, one of the producers were reportedly given permission by the tax authorities to go ahead and take care of the release duties. An emergency meeting was arranged by the producer at the Gemini Lab, with the distributors and a few Producers’ council members to sort out the issues pertaining to the film’s release.

One happening has just changed the total excitement of fans. Just a day before the release of this highly hyped fantasy flick, Income Tax department has given the biggest punch. That’s making producers and distributors sweat it out with tension.

Today morning, residences of hero Vijay in Chennai, Madurai and Cochin are raided by IT sleuths in the wake of big budgeted “Puli” releasing. As the makers of the film have spread news that the film wrapped a near 100 crore rupees business including all areas of Tamilnadu, Income Tax officials laid special focus on them. Both Vijay and his producers houses are raided simultaneously. These raids haven’t stopped as by the afternoon, residences of some prominent distributors who are releasing the film are kept under the noose. There is no way IT officials will cut loose until some other distributors’ offices and residences are raided till late night Yesterday.

Already few theatres in Tamilnadu, especially in top tier cities like Chennai, Madurai and Coimbatore have cancelled the early morning 5 am and 8 am shows, and also started refunding the money. That has worried Vijay fans and the position of morning 11 am shows will be known only late tonight. While there is no clarity on Telugu and Hindi versions here Puli Telugu premieres in US are cancelled as they sent Tamil drives instead of Telugu and Tamil premieres are very much on schedule
