It has been over 5 years since Dhanush announced his upcoming film with director Karthik Subbaraj. Back in 2016, Dhanush and Karthik shared a photo to announce their collaboration. The film went on floors in London with major portions being shot there. Later, the film's title was announced as Jagame Thandhiram. The film, produced by Y Not Sashikanth, was wrapped almost a year ago. Jagame Thandhiram was supposed to hit the theatres last year. Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the film's release date had to be postponed to a later date.
On several attempts, the makers of Jagame Thandhiram revealed that the film will release in theatres. However, there are rumors doing the rounds saying that Jagame Thandhiram will release directly on Netflix. However, there has been no proper announcement regarding the release as of now. Jagame Thandhiram is in final rounds of talks with Netflix and an announcement is expected soon. Jagame Thandhiram also features Dhanush, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Game of Thrones star James Cosmo, Joju George, Kalaiyarasan, and Soundararaja in important roles. The film's technical crew comprises of composer Santosh Narayanan, cinematographers Shreyaas Krishna and Nijai Gowthaman, and editor Vivek Harshan.
