Director Selvaraghavan apologized to his fans as he had promised them that Mayakkam Enna starring brother Dhanush and Richa would be a Diwali release but it has been postponed. He explained that he recently suffered a bout of illness and his health is still fragile. Therefore, he could not put in the merciless hours needed to get the film ready on time and to his satisfaction.
However, Selva has assured his fans that the film is likely to be released some time in November. He has requested everyone to be patient with the delay and said that hopefully they will find the final product is worth the wait.
