The official PRO of Irumbu Thirai announced the film’s release date as May 11 yesterday before Vishal issued a statement clarifying the same as a rumor.
“It’s my duty to inform the media that there has been a miscommunication regarding the release date of Irumbuthirai on May 11th. May 11th is not the release date. Due to the lack of communication and misunderstanding with the buyers the date has been announced without the knowledge of VFF and hence I want to clear the confusion regarding the same. We will announce the release date as per the regulations of Tamil Nadu Producer Council Releasing Committee. Until further notification kindly requesting the media to refrain from spreading the incorrect release date,” the statement read.
