It is quite common for the film distributors to stand against direct OTT releases since it affects their business badly. But here is a rare situation where distributors have reportedly forced a star hero's film into having a director OTT release. It is none other than Tamil hero Dhanush's upcoming film 'Jagame Thantram' directed by versatile director Karthik Subbaraj.
Dhanush and team are trying to release this film in theatre from a very long time. The movie has a huge buzz around it due to its interesting and innovative motion posters and songs. But the distributors are not willing to release it in theatres due to their feud with director Karthik Subbaraj.
The 'Petta' director released his production venture 'Penguin' directly on the OTT platform despite the warnings of distributors during the lockdown period. This angered the distributors and they are now standing against his next film 'Jagame Thantram' to have a theatrical release. With no option left, they are now releasing this film on Netflix as they offered them a big deal. Let us wait till the official information regarding this comes out.
