Ponniyin Selvan 1: Close To Release, Canada Theatre Owners Threatened

Ponniyin Selvan 1 is an upcoming Tamil Movie that is set to release on Friday, September 30, 2022. The latest update on the Aishwarya Rai starrer is that Canadian theatre owners are getting threatened prior to the world premiere of PS-1. When people were thinking about how to do Ponniyin Selvan book part 1, the overseas distributor of the movie, KW Talkies tweeted regarding this on Thursday, September 29, 2022. However, the tweet had a twist! The post noted that:

"#BookingMonday updates! I have updates from Hamilton, Kitchener and London. All the theatre owners have been threatened with attacks if they play PS1 Tamil or any movie from KW Talkies. Let's see how other places fare. #PS1TamilInCineplex #PS1TamilInLandmark."

The exact reason for the threats is still not known. But it is a serious issue to be noted as in case any mishap happens, the theatres might take down the movie from its schedule. This would in turn affect the Ponniyin Selvan 1 worldwide collection. The tweet made by KW talkies also attached a screenshot that mentioned a warning regarding the innumerable threats that they got. The screenshot stated that:

"Warning to theatre owners and workers, if you are planning to play the movie's from organised criminal KW Talkies Saleem, especially movie PS1 and Chup. We will tear up all your screens and release toxicity in the area and a few of your employees will end up in the hospital. We will not only be targeting this Indian movie, but we continue to attack other blockbuster English movies."

"We will continue to do so till you stop playing movies from Kw Talkies people. Christmas is not far away, we will be targeting all big hit movies both English and Indian. Learn from the landmark movie theatres, they stop movies to protect themselves. This will be the only warning..."

Before further information on the threats is discussed, please have a look at the Ponniyin Selvan 1 trailer (teaser).

Well, it is still unclear whether these threats will subside or not. Also, the fact that the Ponniyin Selvan budget is huge is another matter of concern for the production unit. The movie has been made on a budget of about ₹250 crore (considering that the entire ₹500 crore budget of the movie was spread into two parts). For now, let’s watch for updates after its release so that we can get to know whether these threats were bogus or real.
