When Kangana Ranaut was brought on board to play the lead role in director AL Vijay's Thalaivii, it raised everyone's eyebrows. While the first look poster of Thalaivii was ridiculed and trolled, the makers pulled up the strings with the follow-up posters. Now, Thalaivii is all set to hit the theatres on September 10 in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi. The Tamil and Telugu versions of Thalaivii will premiere on OTT after four weeks. But, the Hindi version will premiere in just two weeks after release. The Multiplex Association in India wants to delay the Hindi OTT release of OTT by two more weeks.
Kangana reacted to the issue on Instagram and wrote, "No films are choosing theatres, very few and very brave like my producers @vishnuinduri @shaaileshrsingh are compromising on huge profits and letting go off exclusive streaming options only for the love of cinema ... in these times we must support each other and not bully or arm-twist, it's our fundamental right to recover the cost of our film which we did, we may have two weeks window for Hindi version but for the south, we have four weeks window yet multiplexes ganging up on us and stopping our release there as well... This is unfair and cruel in these testing times when major territories like Maharashtra are also shut .... Please let's help each other in order to save theatres."
