Producer Sashikanth is busy with the promotion of his upcoming film, Jagame Thandhiram. The film will stream on Netflix on June 18. When Sashikanth decided to release the film on an OTT platform, it did not go down welll with Dhanush. Many reports suggested that they had a fallout and that they are not in talking terms. In a recent media interaction, Sashikanth said that he and Dhansuh have beenn friends for 10 years and that he's allowed to feel about going for theatrical release.
Sashikanth said, "A lot of things have been written about my relationship with Dhanush on social media. But the truth is that Dhanush and I have been friends for the last ten years. Both Dhanush and I wished only the good for our film Jagame Thandhiram. There is nothing wrong with his idea to release the film in theaters. His fans would've celebrated the film in theaters. But from a commercial point of view, it's a huge burden for me to pay the interest. Even now, we don't have clarity on the reopening of theaters. This is the negative side of the film. But on the positive side, 200 million users are going to watch Jagame Thandhiram on Netflix. A lot of people in the US are talking about the film. As a producer, I feel happy about the tremendous reach of the film."
