Dhanush is one of the busiest actors in the Tamil film industry. He was last seen in director Durai Senthil Kumar's Pattaas, which also starred Sneha in the lead role. Back in 2016, Dhanush announced his upcoming film with Karthik Subbaraj. The gangster film is titled Jagame Thandhiram. The shooting of Jagame Thandhiram was wrapped up last year. But, the film's theatrical release had to be postponed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Producer Sashikanth of Y Not Studios took a brave decision to release his film only in theatres.
Now that Master has released in theatres and is doing successful business at the box office, the makers have now finalised a release date. Earlier, reports suggested that Jagame Thandhiram will release sometime in February. Due to unknown reasons, Jagame Thandhiram will now release in April. An official announcement regarding the film's release date will be out soon. The film's cast includes Aishwarya Lekshmi, James Cosmo, Joju George, Kalaiyarasan, Vadivukarasi and Sanchana Natarajan. Jagame Thandhiram's crew consists of composer Santhosh Narayanan, editor Vivek Harshan and cinematographers Shreyaas Krishna and Nijai Gowthaman.
