25 VFX shots are yet to be completed, once the pending VFX is completed the film will be released, but it got delayed due to various reasons. Uttama Villain will not release on April 10, and instead the makers are planning to release on April 24 or May 1 ’15.
VFX supervisor Madhusudanan, who has earlier worked on Mr Haasan’s films such as Alavandhan and Thenali, is busy overseeing the pending work.
“Kamal sir has requested Madhu not to rush. He said he doesn’t mind waiting for two more weeks but doesn’t want to compromise on the output,” the source said.
Directed by Ramesh Aravind, Uttama Villain is the story of a theatre artist in the 8th century and a modern day superstar. (Also Read: How Kamal Haasan Convinced K Balachander for Uttama Villain)
