Chennai: The makers of 'Thalaivaa' couldn't have asked for more. Fans queued up from 6 in the morning, brought the film's reel on a chariot, and danced to celebrate the film's peaceful release here on Tuesday.

After crossing roadblocks, Vijay starrer Tamil action drama 'Thalaivaa' has finally released in Tamil Nadu and Pudicherry.

At the city's Udhayam theatre, fans brought the film's reel in a chariot, performed pooja and then carried it on their shoulders to the operator's room.

"It's a ritual to carry the reel of Vijay's films on a chariot. So, fans organised a chariot and brought the reel after performing pooja in a temple. They danced all the way from the temple to the theatre. Fans in the theatre poured milk on Vijay's life size cut outs and also put kumkum and garlanded on his posters," a representative of Udhayam theatre told IANS.

In Tamil Nadu, Thalaivaa hit approximately 405 screens.

"Fans were waiting for the theatre gates to open since 6 a.m. in the morning. They wanted to set up everything before the release of the film. Most of Vijay's fans wore t-shirts with his image on it and were dancing to his songs," said the representative.
