A new piece of news has come as a huge treat to the Dhanush fans. His most-awaited gangster flick titled ‘Jagame Thandhiram’ directed by Karthik Subbaraj has Dhanush in the titular role, while Lekshmi Menon will be seen as the leading lady.The film will be released in theatres and on OTT platform on the same day. It was anticipated earlier that the film will be released in February. Well, it looks like Kollywood is on a roll to release new films. While fans are still on top of the sky after watching Thalapathy Vijay’s ‘Master’ and Silambarasan TR’s ‘Eeswaran’ on pongal.
The makers are reportedly considering releasing the film on OTT as they have received a huge offer. Earlier they had promised that the film will get a direct theatrical release. To handle both, the makers will be releasing the film in theatres and on OTT at the same time. However, no official update regarding this is made yet.
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.
Meanwhile, other than this, Dhanush will be joining the sets of his Hollywood film ‘The Gry Man’s this month. Dhanush recently joined the sets of his upcoming film with Karthik Naren tentatively titled D-43. The film has Malaika Mohanan as the leading lady. His yet to be titled film with Selvaraghavan was also rolled on the floors recently.
