Why is ‘Jigarthanda’ delayed?

Long ?delayed Siddharth ? Lakshmi Menon starrer Jigarthanda got a U/A certificate when it went to censors few weeks ago.

In Tamil Nadu, the U/A certificate will deny the coveted Entertainment Tax exemption and there are certain challenges associated with selling the satellite rights of a movie which is does not carry a ‘U’ certificate.

So , producer Five Star Kathiresan requested director Karthik Subbaraj to re-edit the movie to get U certificate. But the buzz is that Karthik is not willing to budge and holds the ground citing his rights for creative freedom.

Producer and director went to their respective Council and Union to resolve the issue. But both the parties are still holding on to their respective position, so the stalemate continues.

So Jigarthanda which was supposed to be May (Summer) release is waiting in the wings not knowing its release date.
