Prithviraj Sukumaran, Nayanthara's 'Gold' receives new release date
Good news for all those who were waiting to find out about the release date of Prithviraj Sukumaran and Nayanthara-starrer Gold. The makers have announced the new release date of the film. Taking to social media on Wednesday, the makers revealed that the film, directed by Alphonse Puthren, will be hitting cinema halls across the world on December 1.
Why does this story matter?
- Gold marks the comeback of Puthren as director after seven long years. His last film Premam, starring actors Nivin Pauly and Sai Pallavi in the lead, was released on May 28, 2015.
- Meanwhile, it is the first time that Sukumaran and Nayanthara have been paired together for a film. Previously, they were seen in 2008's Malayalam film Twenty:20, in a song sequence.
Film was earlier slated to release in September
Previously, Gold was slated for a September release. However, the film was later postponed since Puthren and the producers were not happy with the final product. The film was at least three hours long, reportedly. Therefore, to make the needed cuts and to make it more engaging, reshoots were held for the film which was completed in October.
