New Delhi: After initial obstacles, superstar Vijay's Tamil fantasy drama Puli finally hit the screens on October 1. The early morning shows of the film were cancelled on Thursday after theatres failed to receive clearance from Qube, the company that streams movies digitally.

It was only after actor Vijay intervened and settled all the dues that the clearance was given to theatres by Qube. "Due to the Income Tax raid on Thursday, Vijay and the producers of the 'Puli' weren't allowed to transfer funds. This morning Vijay went to Gemini labs and settled all the dues and subsequently the theatres were given the nod to screen the film from noon," a source from the industry told IANS.

The film has been directed by Chimbu Deven.
