Director Mari Selvaraj joined hands with actor Dhanush for Karnan. Produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, Karnan was slated to release in theatres on April 9. However, for the past few days, there were rumours doing the rounds that Karnan's release might get postponed. Due to the rising COvid-19 cases in Tamil Nadu people have been anticipating a lockdown or restrictions in the state. Likewise, the Tamil Nadu government announced that theatres in the state will operate with 50 per cent occupancy as opposed to 100 per cent occupancy.
As promised #Karnan will arrive to theatres tomorrow. As per the need guidelines of our Govt #Karnan will be screened with 50% capacity in theatres along with proper safety measures. I kindly request everyone to provide your support for #Karnan @dhanushkraja @mari_selvaraj— Kalaippuli S Thanu (@theVcreations) April 8, 2021
