The ardent fans of Thalapathy Vijay are counting the days to celebrate their favourite actor on the big screens through his new avatar 'Beast'. On the heels of the blockbuster hit of Master, the fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Beast which has been slated for a theatrical release on April 13, 2022. With the lyric videos of two songs are doing wonders in the digital world, the movie has stored a major expectation given the crew and the storyline.
As the movie release is just three weeks ahead, the fans are all ears to hear the update about the movie's teaser. Beast will be released as a pan Indian movie and the fans are trending the hashtag for Beast teaser update and according to the reports in the know, Beast teaser will be released on April 1 and the movie team will be unveiling the official announcement.
On Tuesday - March 22, Sun Pictures, which has bankrolled Beast, has announced that the movie will hit the big screens on April 13, one day prior to the earlier predictions. Along with the release date, the fans have also got some crucial updates over the movie's censor and running time. On Monday - March 21, the CBFC has censored Beast with a U/A certificate and the movie's running time would be around 2 hours and 35 minutes.
Though it's shorter while compared to previous Vijay movies that ran for 2 hours 45 to 50 minutes, it didn't affect the expectations of the movie as Vijay has teamed up with a successful director Nelson Dilipkumar. The reports say that to know the censor certificate, the fans have stormed to the CBFC website, which endured a crash owing to the massive traffic. While the movie team has announced the official release date, it is yet to clarify how the songs of the movie will be released.
On the front of why the movie team has decided to release the movie on April 13 instead of April 14, the reports say that the decision was taken to avoid the opening day clash with KGF: Chapter 2, which will be released on April 14. Beast aims to have a historical first-day opening and grossing and no collision should disturb the movie's run. Though KGF 2 is a Kannada movie, actor Yash has a significant fan base in Tamil Nadu as the Tamil fans were vital for the success of KGF's first part.
Beast is helmed by Nelson Dilipkumar and while Vijay plays the lead role, Pooja Hegde, Selvaraghavan, Yogi Babu, Shine Tom Chacko, John Vijay, VTV Ganesh, and Aparna Das play important roles. Anirudh has composed the music and the movie is made on the budget of Rs 150 crores. Vijay was last seen in Master- directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj and after Beast, he will be teaming up with Telugu director Vamsi Paidipally for his next project that has been tentatively named Thalapathy 66.
