"Work pertaining to computer graphics on the film has been outsourced to third parties in countries such as Russia, China and Sweden. The team is unsatisfied with the output and hence, they've been asked to rework on some crucial portion," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Directed by Chimbu Deven, the film also stars Shruti Haasan, Sridevi, Hansika Motwani and Sudeep in important roles.
The source said that the team is working round the clock to ensure the film doesn't get further delayed.
"Puli" will also be dubbed in Telugu and Hindi.
