“AELAY” WORLD PREMIERE ON STAR VIJAY TELEVISION ON FEBRUARY 28, 2021
YNOT Studios, Reliance Entertainment and Wallwatcher Films are proud of producing ‘AELAY’ starring Samuthirakani and Manikandan in lead roles, written and directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Halitha Shameem, who has continuously won the hearts of the general audience and critics for creating beautiful movies rich in emotions and portraying relationship values exquisitely. We were enthusiastically planning to have a grand worldwide theatrical release on February 12, 2021.
However, just three days before the much-anticipated theatrical release, due to certain unforeseen and surprising policy developments, theatres were not made available for the film and we were left with no other option but to skip the theatrical release and to ensure that the film be made available to the larger audience, we are partnering with STAR Vijay for a Worldwide Television Premiere of ‘Aelay’ on the 28th February 2021 (Sunday) at 3PM.
We remain committed to nurture talent and making available quality content to the audience across platforms including theatres.

The film is made to savour the tastes of family audiences. With Star Vijay enjoying a fan base of such crowds, we are happy that ‘Aelay’ will find an excellent reach with this satellite premiere.”
Director Halitha Shameem says - “I am glad that my film ‘Aelay’ is now going to witness a phenomenal reach across a wide range of audience. ‘Aelay’ has been close to my heart even before I embarked on my journey as a filmmaker.
