Tamil action thriller Bairavaa, starring Ilayathapathy Vijay was released Thursday morning. ‘A’ Class theatres of the state will not open from today.

Bairavaa was released in Cine Exhibitors Association’s 70 theatres, multiplexes and government theatres. Vinod Mankar’s Kamboji which was to release today has now been postponed to next week as they wanted more theatres.
