With so many films going direct to OTT skipping their theatrical release there was a buzz in the industry that Kangana Ranaut’s much-anticipated film Thalaivi might also take the same route. However, Kangana in a recent interview clarified that Thalaivi is cut out for a big-screen release.
Kangana says, “A film like ‘Thalaivi’ just can’t release on digital because it is such a massive scale film, neither a movie like ‘Manikarnika’ is a digital space film. But yes, films like ‘Panga’, ‘Judgemental Hai Kya’ cater to a niche audience and they can be released on direct OTT platforms.”
She further reveals that since Thalaivi is a bilingual film, it is sold to both Netflix and Amazon in both Hindi and Tamil for around Rs 55 crore which is simply huge.
