Thalaivi’ to be released next month on OTT
Kangana Runot’s upcoming film ‘Thalaivi’ will be released on the digital platform next month. Yes, if sources are to be believed, Amazon Prime Video can release this film on May 23 in three languages - Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi. Kangana’s team, however, denies this.
That’s why the twist in the plan
says close sources – “The film was to be released in theaters on the 23rd of this month (April), although the release date of Thalaivi was postponed due to the lockdown in many states of the country. At the moment, the condition of the theater is better It does not seem to be happening.
However, the makers have still not given up hope of releasing the film in theaters. They are hopeful that the situation will improve in May and the theaters will open up. They want to bring their film to the big screen first. And then they will release it on the digital platform. But there is also a twist in this plan. According to the new planning, the makers can now release the film on the digital platform next month.
However, Kangana’s team is refusing to release the news on the digital platform of ‘Thalaivi’. During a conversation with Dainik Bhaskar, Kangana’s spokesperson says, “Look, there is no truth in this news. We want to release this film on the big screen and there is no discussion of bringing it to the digital platform right now. Like The makers will decide its release date, in the same way, we will tell the audience. ”
45 to 50 crores deal with Amazon, Amazon has bought the digital rights of this film for less than expected by the makers. According to the source, the deal has been done for 45 to 50 crores as the makers wanted to bring it to the theater first instead of the digital premiere. If they had already decided to release it on the OTT platform, the makers might have made some more profit.
Kangana had given notice of the postpone of the film’s release, a few days ago, Kangana had reported in one of her statements to postpone the release of Thalaivi. In which it was said that the film ‘Thalaivi’ is a multilingual film and it is also ready for release on 23 April in all languages. But, given the current situation, it is not possible to release it in all languages simultaneously.
Kangana will be seen in the role of Jayalalithaa as the actress and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in this film. The film will show Jayalalithaa’s journey from film to politics. Kangana had also gained a lot of weight to cast as Jayalalithaa. The film is directed by AL Vijay, who has been a part of several Tamil and Telugu films.
