Prithviraj Sukumaran and Nayanthara's Gold, directed by Alphonse Puthren, is slated to hit the theatres on December 1 across the globe. However, it looks like the film is facing last-minute hiccups. The 8 am shows of Gold (in Malayalam and Telugu) were cancelled in Chennai. Theatres in Chennai have been informed that they have received information from the Gold team that the film could be released after 10 am in the city. 

PRITHVIRAJ, NAYANTHARA'S GOLD MORNING SHOWS CANCELLED 

It has been seven years since director Alphonse Puthren even had a release (barring a short film in Aviyal). Seven years after Premam, his fans were excited to witness Gold in the theatres. 

However, his fans were in for a disappointment, as the 8 am shows of Gold in Chennai were cancelled. Initially, the Tamil version of Gold was cancelled citing that the makers hadn't completed the dubbing. Later on December 1, theatres informed the fans that they haven't received the KDM (a key required to play a movie). 

Speaking to IndiaToday.in, an employee of Kasi Talkies in Chennai said, "We did not receive the KDM for Gold for our 8 am show. For now, we have received information that we can play the film after 10 am. Similarly, we had to cancel several shows of the Tamil version on November 30."

ALL ABOUT GOLD

Gold is tipped to be a comedy thriller flick written, edited and directed by Alphonse Puthren. The film features Prithviraj Sukumaran and Nayanthara in lead roles. The film was initially supposed to release in September during Onam, but was postponed. Alphonse informed his followers that he needs time to work on the film and that he wasn't interested in putting up a half-baked product.
