Due to the lockdown, everything needs some time to get back to normal. The theatre owners and film distributors got affected as most of the filmmakers are opting for direct OTT release. Kollywood starlet Jyothika's recent outing Ponmagal Vandhal also directly got released on Amazon prime. Thalapathy Vijay starrer 'Master' is undoubtedly one of the most awaited movies in Kollywood at the moment. Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of 'Khaidi' fame, the movie was supposed to hit the theatres on April 9th 2020. The film unit got a deal of 150 crores, says the sources.
But because of the lockdown, the makers have postponed the release. Some are claiming that it would be better if the movie gets released directly on the OTT platforms. But the official announcement is yet to be known.
As per the latest reports, digital giants like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix have already approached the makers with a whopping amount of 150 crores to release the film directly on the OTT platform. However, the producers are yet to take the final decision regarding the release.
The film unit wants to think about the release only after the final copy is ready. Their primary focus is to finish the film on time.
