The makers were earlier lauded for their gutsy move of releasing Kolamaavu Kokila on August 10. While Nayanthara has slowly but steadily built a box office reputation for herself, the clash would have meant a different kind of litmus test for the Lady Superstar. Arguably one of the leading names who has changed several notions about women-centric cinema, if Nayanthara had pulled off this clash, Tamil cinema would have been changed for the better. But looks like the makers don’t want to risk it and have pushed the release date.
