"Releasing a movie is no easy task. Though I am the president of Tamil Film Producers, still I faced hurdles to release my movie Irumbu Thirai," says actor Vishal.

Speaking at the success meet of the movie held in Chennai, Vishal, said, "Few people in the industry had a thought that Irumbu Thirai release should be stalled at least for a day so that others could say, 'When a film from TFPC president himself is not releasing, how will he take care of other producers?' The whole night till next day morning was a big learning experience to me about certain things in life."

"My friend mortgaged his car on night before Irumbu Thirai release to help me financially. I must really thank my friends, especially producer SR Prabhu for being strong support. He happens to be the major reason behind the film’s release."

On his part, doirector Mithran, said, "Till the last minute we were uncertain of its release. But thanks to Vishal effort, the release happened. I thank Arjun for accepting to be part of the movie."

The movie featured Samantha as heroine and cinematography by George C Williams and editing by Ruben. It speaks about data thefts.
