The revising committee of the censor board has awarded actor Suriya’s Singam 3 a clean ‘U’ certificate, paving way for its worldwide release on January 26. Earlier, the censor board has given the film a U/A certificate and the filmmakers were not happy about it.
The makers of the cop film even postponed the release date so that they can approach the revising committee, hoping to convince the members of the panel to clear the film with a ‘U’ certificate. The universal certificate makes Singam eligible for audiences of all age groups and allows filmmakers to apply for tax exemption in Tamil Nadu.
Singam 3, which was expected to release during the Pooja weekend last year, was postponed thrice due to various reasons. Initially, it was announced that the film will open in theatres on December 16. And again, it was pushed by a week at the request of the makers of Telugu film Dhruva. The filmmakers again postponed the release citing external factors beyond their control.
S3 (stylised as SIII; also known as Singam 3) is an upcoming 2017 Indian Tamil-language action-masala film written and directed by Hari. A sequel to Singam II (2013) and the third film in the Singam franchise, it stars Suriya, Shruti Haasan and Anushka Shetty.
Principal photography commenced in January 2016 in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. The film is scheduled for a worldwide release along with the Telugu dubbed version, Yamudu 3.
