Known to go on unprecedented paths both in reel and real life, actress Kangana Ranaut and her team took yet another challenging decision regarding her upcoming release ‘Thalaivi’. The political biopic which wrapped up the shoot long back is waiting for a perfect market for many months.
While the audience is still unclear if the film would hit theatrical or OTT release, the unit announced that ‘Thalaivi’ is heading for a theatrical release on Friday in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi languages. However, in a shocking decision, the film would hit OTTs two weeks after the theatrical release.
As per reports, ‘Thalaivi’ has been sold for a whopping Rs. 55 crore and that, too, to two major OTT platforms, Netflix and Amazon Prime. Making it the first movie to have a simultaneous release on two OTT platforms, ‘Thalaivi’ reportedly didn’t have favorable market in North India.
Directed by AL Vijay, Thalaivii has Kangana Ranaut and Aravind Swamy in the lead roles.
