Irrational protests notwithstanding, the Tamil version of Madras Cafe is all set to be released on Sunday. But only in Andhra Pradesh and not in Tamil Nadu.
Says Shoojit, "It has been a very tense week for John Abraham and I. We didn't know what hit us, or what the protests meant. But we were sure we won't succumb to pressure tactics."
However, Ajit Andhare of COO of Viacom 18, the co-producers of Madras Cafe, throws a shocker by saying, "Given the threats and protests it is unlikely that we'll be able to release the Tamil version of Madras Cafe in the near future. The theatre chains in Tamil Nadu feel it is risky to play it. So we are releasing the Tamil version in Andhra Pradesh on Sunday."
