The entire team of Mr Local was present for the press event of the film. During this occasion, Robo Shankar who spoke on the occasion said that media is always stubborn and rigid that they don’t even enjoy a single comedy scene, which audiences thoroughly enjoy in the theatres. This instantly created an issue as some of the journalists started resenting his speech through their comments. Later, Sivakarthikeyan on his turn cooled down the issue in favour of media saying that they are here to work and not clap.
Mr. Local featuring Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara in lead roles is scheduled for release on May 17. The film is directed by Rajesh and is produced by K.E. Gnanavel Raja for Studio Green Films. Hiphop Aadhi is composing music for this film, which has Radhika Sarathkumar, Yogi Babu, Satish, Robo Shankar and few more prominent actors.
