Versatile actor Dhanush and young director Karthik Subbaraj have collaborated for the first time for the movie Jagame Thandhiram. The film was originally slated for the release on May 1. However, it couldn't hit the screens due to the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown. It seems that Karthik Subbaraj put forth the idea of releasing it online directly on an OTT platform. However, Dhanush opposed the idea and said that his film will have a theatrical release for sure.
According to the sources, Karthik Subbaraj recently asked Dhanush if the film can get a direct online release. The actor simply opposed the idea and affirmed that the movie will have a theatrical release. Thus, Karthik withdrew the plans of releasing it online. Recently, Karthik released his production venture Penguin directly on the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video. Maybe he thought it would be safer to release Jagame Thandhiram online as well.
Jagame Thandhiram features Aishwarya Lekshmi as the female lead. Sanchana Natarajan, Joju George and Kalaiyarasan played the other important roles in the movie. Hollywood actor James Cosmo has also essayed a key role in it. The music of the film got composed by Santosh Narayanan. It is being bankrolled by Sasikanth under the banner Y Not Studios. The new release date of Jagame Thandhiram will get announced once the theaters reopen. It will also have a simultaneous release in Telugu. Geetha Arts and UV Creations have bagged the Telugu rights of the movie.
