Dhanush’s ‘Jagame Thanthiram‘, which is directed by Karthik Subbaraj, was supposed to be released in May 2020. But the Corona attack delayed the film release, and fans were disappointed as their wait just got extended to watch the gangster drama. As per the latest report, Dhanush’s ‘Jagame Thanthiram’ will be released on the same day in theaters and on the OTT. platform. Reportedly, ‘Jagame Thanthiram’ makers, who had assured the fans to release the film in theaters earlier, have changed their minds and reportedly sold the film to OTT.platform.
While on the other hand, Dhanush and Karthik Subbaraj denied the decision of releasing the film in OTT directly since it is made for the fans to enjoy on big screens. So, the producer has been thinking of releasing the film on the same day in theaters in India because the government recently permitted 100% occupancy. But it depends on the theater owners, who hold the right to approve the same day release of a film in theatres and on OTT.
Earlier, theatre owners had refused to screen Simbu’s ‘Eeswaran’, when the makers planned to release the film in OTT outside India after the film’s first week of release. However, the decision was later reversed and the film was released in theaters for Pongal. Similarly, Vijay’s ‘Master’ was released on OTT, and the film is also doing well in theatres.
